Walters to Monica: 'End It'

Barbara Walters looks at Monica Lewinsky and sees a daughter who was in love. The veteran interviewer said she would have tried to convince Lewinsky to end her relationship with President Clinton but would have been prepared for failure. “I would have tried to tell her that this was a relationship that had no future,” Walters says in the new TV Guide. “But have you ever tried to stop a daughter when she is in love from doing anything? It’s very hard.” Walters had a favorable impression of Lewinsky both before and after two recent meetings. “I found Monica warm and intelligent and very open. I told her, ‘You’re very alive.’ And she said, ‘Maybe that was the appeal (to the President).'”
