Monica Lewinsky's rabbi gives benediction after Bill Clinton speech
For some unfathomable reason, the Democrats chose Monica Lewinsky's former rabbi, the prominent David Wolpe, to give the benediction to end Wednesday's proceedings - proceedings headlined by one Bill Clinton.
It's not even as if Wolpe was a mere Lewinsky acquaintance: according to ABC News, he directly criticized Clinton over the affair in the 1990s, saying the then-president had acted like a "child," had issued a "flinty legalistic apology," and needed to "cleanse his soul."
Wolpe waded slyly into another controversy on Wednesday: in the benediction, which occurred, mercifully for the Democrats, around 1 a.m., he called Jerusalem a "golden and capital city."
News reports suggest he and Clinton did not stab each other in the green room.
