Monica Lewinsky, in a statement released today,
in response to President Clinton's testimony
I have had enough. This whole experience has
left a bitter taste in my mouth, and I can't stomach
any more. I feel as if I am getting the shaft,
that this ugly matter has come to a head and blown
up in myface.
This may be a load to handle, but when things
are hard, that is when I am at my best.
I have faced hard things in the past, and
I know what is coming. I will meet the challenge
the only way I know how: head-on. I have licked
bigger things than this before, and I will again.
No one will ever be able to say that Monica Lewinsky
isn't a finisher, that she quit before the job was
done. I will work nonstop and fight this, blow by
blow, until I am wiped clean of this dirty affair.
I will not be stained by it.
