Bill Clinton’s affair was not the only scandal to happen in the White House. There have been countless issues and scandals that happened regarding the president. However, this was the first president to have an affair while being president. It was also an affair that he had with a much younger woman and the young woman was an intern in the White House.
This made the affair such a huge issue. It seems that if he had an affair with a randomperson, it might not have been such a huge issue. Also, he lied about it which made the situation carry on further. This made the issue stretch out for a long time and then there was possible impeachment of Bill Clinton due to this affair.
