Lance Armstrong: The next Bill Clinton? "People forgive and forget"

Disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong says it's only a matter of time before the public forgives him for cheating - just like they did Bill Clinton for his affair while in Office.

He just told the magazine Texas Monthly, "People forgive and forget and remember the good stuff you did.... Clinton did it – he loves to work, he loves people, he loves to hustle."  Armstrong added, "He's a hero of mine. He's a tough guy, he's smart, surrounded himself with good people. And ten years later, he's president of the world. It can be done."

OutFront tonight: David Epstein – senior writer, Sports Illustrated, Stephanie Miller, Liberal Radio talk Show host and CNN Contributor Reihan Salam.

    Also, if there IS a performance enhancing drug for elected officials, somebody please put that stuff in the water fountains of Capitol Hill.

    When I first heard about the Armstrong cheating scandal, I really didn't think he was worth even having an opinion about, since there were American hostages in Algeria. Still don't, but he should really keep President Clinton's name out his mouth.

      I love President Clinton (hopefully the 1st President Clinton), but Bill Clinton's legacy survived because Hillary Clinton had the power to save him.
