Disagree. Had Bills scandal come to light as governor, he would have been done. That being said, he did a pretty good job controlling information on his philandering.
Disagree on your first statement - Jennifer Flowers didn't derail him in the '92 election. People knew he was a philanderer, still nominated him, still preferred him to Bush.
Second statement gets a maybe. Frankly, I don't recall any president who ever had to 'control information' on his philandering. Had they, fully 2/3 of US presidents would have gone through similar such "scandals."
But, ultimately, Clinton's philandering hardly rises to the level of putting the health and safety of hundreds of thousands of NJ constituents at risk. Christie has a very real scandal on his hands and he is on EXTREMELY thin ice, right now.
