Did Bill Clinton “repent” about Monica to Obama’s Rev. Wright?

So the latest news is that Clinton wasn’t just photographed at a White House meal with Obama’s pastor, Reverend Wright. Clinton actually may have “repented” to Wright and the assembled clergy about his affair with Monica.

The Clintons are now saying that literally tens of thousands of people got their photos snapped with Bill Clinton. True, but we’re all aware that the Clinton White House was hardly cavalier about invitations. An invitation to their White House was a favor doled out to special people (Lincoln Bedroom, anyone?). And in any case, of those tens of thousands of photos, how many of those people actually got invited to a formal meal with the president at the White House? I’ve been in DC for 20 years and never got invited to dine at the White House. You have to be fully vetted, and placed on the special suck-up list, for something like that. The Clinton campaign is now calling it “pathetic” that this photo has come to light. I’d say. After the Clinton campaign peddled the Rev. Wright story for weeks, now we find out that Bill Clinton himself invited Wright to dine at the White House. Yeah, saying anything to win is definitely pretty pathetic.

And in any case, would the Clintons now have us believe that each and every one of those tens of thousands of photos included a personal “repentance” from Bill Clinton over the Monica scandal?
