Lewinsky Was One of 'Hundreds' Inside the White House: Morris

        Monica Lewinsky was just one of "hundreds" of women Bill Clinton cheated
with during the his years as the nation's chief executive, according to a
longtime Clinton insider who estimated the size of the presidential harem
during a speech on Wednesday.

        Commenting on Clinton's peccadilloes to a Miami University audience,
one-time presidential political guru Dick Morris contended:

        "He's had hundreds of women since he's been in the White House." Referring
to Clinton Cabinet members who blindly accepted his denials of an affair
with Lewinsky, Morris said, "You had to be a moron to believe this guy
after his past record."

        Morris' comments first appeared in a Thursday night report by Cox News

        The former Clinton confidant declined to elaborate. But in taped
conversations with Linda Tripp, the White House intern revealed the
president had once told her he'd slept with more than a hundred women
during his Arkansas days.

        In 1994, Arkansas state trooper L.D. Brown told the American Spectator
that he had procured "at least a hundred" women for Clinton from 1982 till
he left the governor's security detail in 1985.

        But unlike Morris, neither Brown's account nor Lewinsky's had anything to
do with Clinton's White House philandering. On the tapes, for instance,
Lewinsky alludes to her jealousy over only three or four other women she
believed were also involved with Clinton.

        One target of Lewinsky's wrath was Eleanor Mondale, the CBS newswoman and
daughter of former Vice President Walter Mondale. Lewinsky threw a fit
outside the White House just weeks before her affair with Clinton became
public when she learned Clinton was meeting with Mondale the same time
Secret Service guards denied her access.

        In April 1998, former White House steward Michael McGrath detailed for
Star magazine what he believed were Oval Office assignations between
Clinton and former West Wing secretary Debra Schiff. The New York Times
reported that Schiff's access to Clinton was second only to Hillary
Clinton's and that of Vice President Al Gore.

        As the Lewinsky case heated up, Schiff was transferred to the State

        In 1996, former White House personnel director David Watkins went public
with claims that one-time Clinton girlfriend Marsha Scott, who became a
trusted White House insider to both Bill and Hillary Clinton, had continued
a sexual relationship with the president. Scott is one of the few from the
inner Arkansas circle who remains at the White House.

        In the same 1996 interview, Watkins hinted that Clinton was carrying on
with 25-year-old Catherine Cornelius, who instigated Travelgate with her
initial complaint that the travel office was being mismanaged.

        Cornelius was identified in official White House reports as Clinton's
"distant cousin." But neither Watkins nor the late Vince Foster, both of
whom knew Clinton from his earliest days in Hope, Ark., had ever heard of
Cornelius before.
