Washington Whispers New Book: Clinton Aides Shocked by Lewinsky Affair
Another fascinating book about the Clinton years is soon to hit the streets, this one built on interviews with 150 of Bubba's friends, allies, and enemies. A Complicated Man: The Life of Bill Clinton as Told by Those Who Know Him, by historian Michael Takiff, reveals just how shocked top aides were by the Monica Lewinsky scandal.
New York Post Monica had eyes for Bill aide
Monica Lewinsky had her eyes on another man in the White House before she serviced President Clinton — Clinton's communications director George Stephanopoulos. Top White House aides were shocked to learn in 1997 that Clinton was having sex with Lewinsky because she had been constantly flirting with Stephanopoulos, now the host of ABC's "Good Morning America," according to historian Michael Takiff's upcoming book, "A Complicated Man: The Life of Bill Clinton as Told by Those Who Know Him" (Yale Press).
New York Daily News Bill Clinton had 'mentality of an 18-year-old' regarding sex
President Clinton was one of the savviest politicians to occupy the White House, but when it came to sex he had "the mentality of an 18-year-old."
