In 2014 Monica Lewinsky returned from obscurity back to the home pages. Lewinsky ended her almost 20 years of silence by telling her story of that saga which dominated news cycles back in 1998. In what was an even crazier coincidence, totally unrelated, Monica Lewinsky returned to relevance just two days before a guy named Ha Ha Clinton-Dix was drafted by the Green Bay Packers out of the University of Alabama.
