In Aronold’s Defense

From a reader:

The actual conduct in both Clinton’s and Schwartzenegger’s case is undefensible, I will agree. The character issue for me here is how one responds when the accusations are made. As far as I can tell Arnold is not defending himself by attacking his accusers. With Bill it was always the recipient of his lechery’s fault for either enticing him or for being the part of some conspiracy against him. And whereas Bill always denied up until being forced to (sort of) admit otherwise, Arnold came right out and said “where there’s smoke…”, and fessed up pretty quickly. Arnold also, in my opinion, gave a real apology for his conduct. Clinton never gave a real apology for anything.
