On December 19, 1998, President Clinton was impeached for his affair with intern Monica Lewinsky. Apparently the experience didn’t change him much. Today the Daily Mail reports he was still up to his antics sometime after the blue dress incident:
TV presenter Claire Sweeney has revealed she was chatted up by Bill Clinton at a fancy dress party.
The former Brookside star was at a bash in Russia, hosted by Cliff Richard, when Clinton, who was U.S. President at the time, approached her, dressed as an admiral.
Sweeney, who was at the party with her then-boyfriend businessman Tony Hibbard, told Channel Five’s The Wright Stuff: ‘Clinton came over and started chatting me up.
‘I thought: “You dirty dog”.
‘His bodyguard then came over and said: “Mr President, we need to go”.’
However, Clinton managed to shake off his bodyguard and swiftly made a beeline back to Sweeney, who was dressed in a saucy Dangerous Liaisons-style outfit.
The 37-year-old asked him: ‘You don’t want to go, do you?
‘He said “How can you tell?”
‘I said “Because your left leg is dancing”.’
To which 62-year-old Clinton is alleged to have responded: ‘My middle leg will be dancing soon!’
The article doesn’t specify when this happened, only that Clinton was President and that Ms. Sweeney was their with her then boyfriend Tony Hibbard. According to wikipedia, the Hibbard relationship lasted about six years, ending in late 2007. Assuming this took place early in their relationship, that would put this sometime in late 2000. Of course it’s always dangerous to rely on wikipedia, but in this case it seems legit. And Clinton did indeed make a trip to Russia in 2000.
Good to know some things never change.
