One word for it:

If you read Josh Marshall's post about Bill Clinton's recent activities, especially these words:
... I don't think there are many people who are bigger fans of Bill Clinton than I am or who've expended more ink defending him and his presidency.

Back during impeachment ... He had ... obligations and responsibilities to his supporters and to the larger public.

... I feel like he's violating the compact that I have with him.
You see that Marshall is talking about one thing:
But why should that be a surprise? Bill betrayed a promise to the nation not to fool around while in office. You may think that promise was silly or unnecessary, but make it he did. And he subsequently betrayed the country. Was that justification for impeachment? No. But having a supreme ego that dismisses pledges for short-term advantage is part of Bill's DNA. The big question is, will Democrats and the nation care?
