US History 1973 - 2014 Commonplace Book: Lecture 21, Tabloid Nation II: Monica (Con't)

We have to wait now for the farce to run its course.... But the damage is done. The nation handed its highest office to a man who embodies the narcissistic extremes of the baby-boomer generation. It's all about Bill. And like everyone else who has had a relationship with this irresponsible and self-absorbed individual -- his wife, his friends, his loyal aides, his party -- the nation is paying the price.

—Bob Herbert, The New York Times, "The Damage is Done", August 6, 1998
