"Nobody get's in trouble for lying about sex under oath", right Bill? Ask your "friend" Henry if that is true, you fired him for it.
Even better, the appointment of both Bentsen and Cisneros to the Clinton cabinet started the chain reaction that caused the DemocRATS to lose every statewide elected office in Texas by 1998. There were lots of DemocRATS who thought Cisneros would replace Bentsen in the Senate and hold that seat for decades. But then Clinton appointed Cisneros to HUD. Ann Richards appointed former (almost successful) Senate candidate Bob Krueger to fill the seat till a special election could be held. Kay Bailey Hutchison surprised lots of people by coming in first in a very large field with lots of Republican candidates but only two DemocRATS. In fact she came close to winning a majority of the vote. Anyway there was then a required runoff between Kreuger and Hutchison. By this time Clinton had become incredibly unpopular in Texas, and Hutchison received over 68% of the vote.
