How Bill Clinton is Like Bill Cosby

Camille Paglia: How Bill Clinton is like Bill Cosby.  

Interesting and provocative viewpoints by Camille Paglia.

So have the times and standards changed enough that Clinton would be seen as Cosby, if he was president today?

Oh, yes!  There’s absolutely no doubt, especially in this age of instant social media. In most of these cases, like the Bill Clinton and Bill Cosby stories, there’s been a complete neglect of psychology. We’re in a period right now where nobody asks any questions about psychology.  No one has any feeling for human motivation.  No one talks about sexuality in terms of emotional needs and symbolism and the legacy of childhood. Sexuality has been politicized–“Don’t ask any questions!”  “No discussion!”
