It has been 14 years since news broke about a young intern with the blue dress that was involved in a scandalous affair with the 42nd President of the United States.
Her name was Monica Lewinsky and then President Bill Clinton, at first, denied ever being intimate with the young woman by famously stating, “I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky." in a nationally televised White House news conference.
Now, documentarians want to bring that affair back to life with in-depth interviews from White House staffers and confidantes who were around Clinton in the darkest days of his Presidency.
One such trusted aide, Betsey Wright, begged Clinton not to run for President because of all his past affairs.
Writer Gail Sheely said Wright had serious concerns stating, “The day before the press conference he was going to announce that he was going to run, Betsey Wright, his ferociously protective campaign manager, sat him down with a list of names of women and went through one after the other. ‘How many times? Where did you meet her? How likely is she to talk?” Clinton said for each name that ‘she’ll never say anything’, but Miss Wright replied, ‘But you don’t know that!’ Miss Wright supposedly told Clinton, ‘The problem is we’re not just talking about you, we’re talking about your wife, we’re talking about your child.’ She said I don’t think you can run.’”
