The English have a strange thing for Monica Lewinsky, and vice-versa. Maybe it's just that they've got their own sex scandals to worry about, scandals involving genuine royals, and can't be bothered to worry about whether the president of the United States was messing around with a White House interns. We actually ran into Monica in Oxford once, back when she was touring around with her memoirwriting Brit ghost writer. Seemed nice enough, if not terribly bright.
Well, she just got a degree from the LSE:
Former White House intern Monica Lewinsky, whose sexual relationship with U.S. President Bill Clinton led to his impeachment, has graduated from the London School of Economics, her publicist said on Wednesday.
Lewinsky, who was 21 when she became involved with Clinton, is interviewing for jobs in Britain, publicist Barbara Hutson said.
When Lewinsky, 32, received her Masters of Science degree in Social Psychology last Thursday "the audience of students and parents erupted in spontaneous applause. ... It was a very emotional moment for her," Hutson said in a statement.
Hutson said Lewinsky spent the past year studying and "staying away from the London social scene."
