Lewinsky's back

Saying that "it's time to burn the beret and bury the blue dress," Monica Lewinsky is writing for the first time about her affair with Bill Clinton.

"I, myself, deeply regret what happened between me and President Clinton. Let me say it again: I. Myself. Deeply. Regret. What. Happened," says the now 40-year-old Lewinsky in the upcoming issue of Vanity Fair.

Lewinsky maintains the relationship in the 1990s was one between two consenting adults.

"Sure, my boss took advantage of me, but I will always remain firm on this point: it was a consensual relationship. Any 'abuse' came in the aftermath, when I was made a scapegoat in order to protect his powerful position," Lewinsky writes.

Asked about those conversations between Hillary Clinton and Blair, Lewinsky writes: "Yes, I get it. Hillary Clinton wanted it on record that she was lashing out at her husband's mistress. She may have faulted her husband for being inappropriate, but I find her impulse to blame the Woman-not only me, but herself-troubling."

And she rejects the "narcissistic loony toon" label, saying that she refused to cooperate with interrogators offering the then-24 year old immunity from the threat of jail time in return for wearing a wire to monitor staged conversations with two of Clinton's confidantes."

"Courageous or foolish, maybe," Lewinsky writes, "but narcissistic and loony?" FULL STORY

NSA, Sochi among Obama's political headaches

A brand new report recommends that the National Security Agency's spying program stay in place, but urges the President to rein-in the NSA's massive collection of cell phone and internet data.

The controversial program has sparked concern fury from foreign leaders, concerned about reports that the United States has been spying on them. 

Unfortunately for President Obama, that's just one item on his list of political headaches.

The United States' delegation to the upcoming Winter Olympics in Russia won't include a member of President Barack Obama's family or an active cabinet secretary, but it will include openly gay athletes – a clear jab at Russia's recent anti-gay laws. FULL STORY.
