Has It Only Been Five Years?

The five-year suspension of Bill Clinton's Arkansas law license in connection with the Monica Lewinsky affair ends this week, but the former president isn't saying whether he'll reapply for one.

A more salient question might be: Why would he want to practice law again? He's earned tons of money in speaking fees and from his bestselling 2004 mem-wow and he and wife Hillary are worth $25 million by some accounts.

Clinton agreed to the suspension on his last full day as president -- Jan. 19, 2001. The agreement came on the condition that Whitewater prosecutors not pursue criminal charges against him after he lied under oath about his relationship with Lewinsky, a White House intern.
