16. Consider what today's preteens and teens will say 2 decades from now about what they learned in 2016

from Trump. Now, Republicans 2 decades from now could blame the media that put out the access Hollywood tape.

I might not be correct, but I think the root of Bill Clinton's problem was the court decision that the Paula Jones case could continue while Clinton was President. In retrospect, it should have been delayed until he was out of office -- meaning that none of the questions of inappropriate relations with people working indirectly for him would have happened. Had Clinton simply admitted that there was an inappropriate, but consensual, relationship, it would have been used by the Jones people to argue a pattern and would have become public to make that case.

I agree that Bill Clinton didn't speak oral sex, but his very public statement that "I did not ..." led to details coming out when he was accused of lying to Starr. When he admitted publicly to an inappropriate relationship and to argue he didn't lie, meant the media spoke of oral sex. I would argue that the moment it was decided that a sexual harassment case from years before had to be tried before the end of his Presidency, those issues would be on TV and a whole generation of kids, including my two oldest, would be watching.
