Skip to comments.A Blue Dress for the Blue States
Posted on 09/28/2006 7:45:39 AM PDT by XR7
In a development that could drastically alter the playing field of the race for the Democratic presidential nomination, former White House intern Monica Lewinsky confirmed today that she was considering making a bid for the Democratic nod in 2008.
According to those familiar with her political plans, Lewinsky plans to offer herself as an alternative to the presumptive frontrunner in the race, Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y.
Rumors of Lewinsky's intentions spread like wildfire this week, when the erstwhile intern made a series of stops in New Hampshire, location of the nation's first presidential primary.
Wearing a midnight blue cocktail dress, Lewinsky drew large crowds across the state, suggesting that she could be a real threat to Clinton in a head-to-head race.
"Voters are worn out from George Bush, Iraq and the war on terror," said Democratic voter Jayson Tenzer, who attended one of Lewinsky's New Hampshire rallies. "Monica Lewinsky means good times."
According to Professor Davis Logsdon of the political science department at the University of Minnesota, offering herself as an alternative to Sen. Clinton could be a successful strategy for Lewinsky: "It's worked before."
And while some Democratic insiders worry that Lewinsky lacks the political know-how to be president of the United States, Professor Logsdon does not share those concerns: "Monica Lewinsky has actually had more experience in the Oval Office than Hillary Clinton has."

The Onion. HAS to be from the Onion.
WTF?????????? Just doesn't do it.
this is a joke, right?
Ah, the writer is a "humorist."
He gave Steven King a run for his money with THAT article.
Will she be on her knees trying to get our votes?
If it were between Hitlery and Monica, I'd vote for the "mouth," and I don't mean Hitlery.
Is it THAT dress?
This is too funny, but not a bad idea when you think about it. Can you imagine the campaign and debates? *LMAO*
This is a joke, and was posted a few days ago. I accidentally created a perfect Campaign slogan because of it. "I would rather have a Lewinski than a Hillary."
I'm going to giggle all day on that note!
To be perfectly honest, I would vote for Monica, before I would vote for Hillary, or McCain.
Almost had me, there. Then I saw Borowitz on the by-line. Cute.
" I am your candidate..and I swallow"
This CAN'T be for-real, ........ Can it.....?
I can hear the motto now: "An intern in every cr***h"
Many a woman has been selected over competition with that slogan.

Hey, Steve King happens to be one of the best congressmen out there! http://www.kingforcongress.com/
"Wearing a midnight blue cocktail dress, Lewinsky drew large crowds across the state, suggesting that she could be a real threat to Clinton in a head-to-head race."
Certainly true, in any race where head is involved.
all kidding aside, she does have the name recognition for some elected office at some point. It may be local government to start or she could definitly go for congressional office.
"I would rather have a Lewinski than a Hillary."
What's that old joke: If her legs parted, the furnace would turn on.
Can't you just hear the "Fruedian slips" when MSM commentators start referring to "The Red States versus the Blue Dress states"?
The mess on the dress says you must confess!
If she wins will she light up a victory cigar???
