Awkward: Monica Lewinsky's former rabbi to speak after Clinton at DNC

An O-M-G moment...

ABC News is reporting that Rabbi David Wolpe is scheduled to deliver the benediction tonight after Bill Clinton speaks at the Democratic convention.

Problem: Wolpe is the former rabbi of Monica Lewinsky and her family.

[Wolpe] sharply condemned President Clinton at the time his sexual relationship with Lewinsky, then a 24-year-old White House intern, was dominating national headlines.

“He was a brilliant, talented, extraordinary child, and for the leader of the United States we need an adult,” Rabbi Wolpe told his temple, according to a 1998 Associated Press account. He said Clinton needed to “cleanse his soul.”
