Hasn’t Monica Lewinsky suffered enough already?

If this report in the U.K. Daily Mail is accurate, the world’s most famous former intern may be more of a glutton for punishment than we knew:

Retired news legend Barbara Walters still has some clout – and a strong opinion about how ABC can turn things around at the ratings-challenged show she created, The View. 

Barbara's magic bullet: Monica Lewinsky.

Walters says that the former White House intern would be a 'run away success' on The View, a network source tells Daily Mail Online.

She would attract great guests – even if casting her as a regular co-host would make it unlikely that potential 2016 Presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton or President Bill Clinton would ever appear on the show again.

'Barbara believes that Monica, 41, could make The View competitive and compelling and while a lot of Washington's elite may scratch the show off its must-visit press list, the younger demographic of online users would tune in daily to see what she had to say,' added the source. 

I felt sorry for Lewinsky, who was obviously in over her head (no jokes, please) when she was thrust into the spotlight in the 1990s over her relationship with President Clinton.

And–yes–she would be a thorn in the side of Hillary Clinton, who doesn't want Lewinsky stepping all over her narrative (such as it remains).

And I know Ms. Lewinsky's life hasn’t quite turned out as she expected, but there are better ways to redeem the past than this.

Signing on The View would be a way of letting herself be taken advantage of once again. And being taken advantage of isn't good for any woman.

Plus, whatever the sins, nobody deserves to spend her mornings in the company of the loud-mouthed and ill-informed Whoopi Goldberg!

A redemptive stint at a soup kitchen would be a better option for Ms. Lewinsky.

Please, Monica, don’t get had again.
