Clinton-Lewinsky affair could hurt Hillary in 2016 elections

With the 2016 elections just a couple of years away, Republicans are beginning to launch a foray of attacks against the other party's potential presidential candidate. Early this week, Republican contender Senator Rand Paul revived the Bill Clinton-Monica Lewinsky scandal that rocked the country in 1998.

In an inteview on NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday, Paul said that the scandal was a proof of President Bill Clinton’s predatory habits.

“He took advantage of a girl that was 20 years old and an intern in his office. There is no excuse for that, and that is predatory behavior,” he told host David Gregory. Paul was also asked if the scandal would hurt Hillary Clinton's possible presidential run. His response was, "Sometimes it’s hard to separate one from the other."

Using the Clinton-Lewinsky affair as a strategy to flank the Democratic party could prove to be a good one. But it could also backfire.

Bill Clinton continues to remain popular in the eyes of the American people. In a recent Gallup poll that listed the net ratings of all U.S. presidents, Bill Clinton scored a Republican net rating of 14. President Obama's rating is -72. Democrats gave Clinton 68, while Obama had 46. Clinton's score nearly trails John Kennedy's score of 80. In other words, he really did good.

Paul's statement could also backfire considering that the scandal happened a long time ago. By 2016, America's young voters will just probably skip it.
