Another revelation from Game Change is that Bill Clinton still can't keep his pants on. During the nomination campaign Camp Hillary had a war room that worked only on Slick Willy's proclivities for younger women. Apparently, not only has he not given them up, he was involved in a romantic relationship during the run up to the campaign.
Hillary put her most trusted people in charge of running the background checks on her husband's extra-circular activities after hearing repeated rumors and concerns from potential "super-delegates" that she would need to get the nomination. Team Hillary wanted to be prepared if and when it came out during the campaign. It seems that some high placed republicans were aware of the affair, but kept it quiet until it was needed for the fall campaign.
I actually had a great deal of admiration of how Hillary handled her public humiliation. I don't think I would have handled it with as much grace as she did. You have to wonder why she stays with him.
