There is a battle royale in the offing between the two adversaries Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. Both the contenders have some skeletons in their cupboard regarding their personal lives. Donald has married thrice and unwittingly has proved the Kama Sutra and the Perfumed Garden correct, in that both these  tomes advocate younger partners for rejuvenation in life.  Each time Donald has married a younger partner and his present wife is decades younger than him.

Hillary is in a piquant position. There is no sex scandal or anything similar tainting her, but her husband Bill Clinton makes up for her straight life by being a philanderer. His stint in the White House( 1993-2001) is notable for his sex escapades in the Oval Office of the White House. The hallowed office was used for sexual liaisons. Well, Bill has been like that throughout his life and has had innumerable sexual liaisons with women of all ages and groups. Many women have accused him of sexual liaisons and one of then named Juanita Broaddrick even accused him of raping her. Not an edible charge against a man who later became president of the USA.

Bill Clinton's term in the white house was a lackluster affair. He spent 8 years in the white house with Hillary as the wife. But his sexual escapades continued and now apart from his philandering, one can't think of anything that Bill achieved during his tenure. One, in fact, can accuse him of being a president which saw the incubation of Islamic fundamentalism.

Bill Clinton started a sexual liaison with Monica Lewinsky and he would frequently meet her in the Oval office, which became his rendezvous with the girl.She was considerably younger to Bill and again he probably unwittingly followed what the Kama Sutra has written about sexual relations with younger women for men past their prime. Hillary Clinton was aware of this relationship, but despite the emotional trauma, she did not divorce Bill. One wonders why Hillary kept quiet on this relationship. Her marriage to Bill Clinton could not have been a happy one? 

Just as Bill was into a relationship with Monica, another woman also entered his life. Reports have now emanated that this second woman was Eleanor Mondale, who was the daughter of Walter Mondale, who was Vice President during the presidency of Jimmy Carter. He also stood against Ronald Reagon and lost badly. Both these women pandered to the urge of Bill and sometimes he had to do a balancing act between the two.

This philandering of Bill had its repercussions and when news leaked of these liaisons, an effort was made to impeach him. These were tortuous months for Bill and Hillary as their opponents brought out all the lurid details of the goings-on in the Oval office.  Bill escaped impeachment by the skin of his teeth. Obviously in the months that Bill was facing impeachment proceedings, his attention was not on global issues, but efforts to save his chair. Hillary it must be mentioned was always in the know of these relationships , but she stuck to Bill. She is a calculating woman and probably she had other plans, so she condoned the sexual liaisons of her husband.

Her fortitude has borne fruit and she is likely to be the Republican nominee for the post of President and of course Bill Clinton her husband will be again by her side. He will again enter the white house and one wonders whether he may not start another round of sexual liaisons again. As Hillary had condoned the earlier indiscretions, there is every chance that she will again keep quiet. Hillary has been aware of the sexual escapades of her husband since she married him. At least a dozen women have claimed that they slept with Bill. This claim cannot be disregarded.

With Hillary( if she wins) in the white house the stage the may be set for another round of philandering by her husband, who would again have free run of the White House. This is a piquant situation and perhaps not the best thing to happen to America. Hillary herself has just escaped prosecution by the FBI on the email scandal and her health is also suspect as she fainted some time back. All in all the election and the US presidency may see many fun and games in the years to come.
