Monica Lewinsky, the onetime White House intern whose 1990s affair with Bill Clinton nearly brought down his presidency, broke a long silence on Tuesday, saying she regretted what happened. Writing in Vanity Fair magazine, Lewinsky, 40, said it was time to stop “tiptoeing around my past -- and other people’s futures." Lewinsky wrote that her affair with Clinton was one between consenting adults, and the public humiliation she suffered altered the direction of her life. In excerpts of the article published on the magazine's website, she said "Any ‘abuse’ came in the aftermath, when I was made a scapegoat in order to protect Clinton's powerful position."
