JAMES TARANTO nails it in his Best of the Web Today.

The Foley scandal is actually quite similar to the Monica Lewinsky scandal. In both cases, sexually immature middle-aged men used their positions of responsibility to pursue younger people, who were also sexually immature, but had a right to be on account of their youth.

Russert: But do you--
McCaskill: I said at the time, "I think he's been a great leader, but I don't want my daughter near him."
*** END QUOTE ***
