Armstrong says will emerge unscathed just as 'hero' Clinton following Monicagate
Washington, Mar15 : Disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong has compared himself to former American president and his hero Bill Clinton, saying his doping misdeeds would be ultimately forgotten by the public and they would only remember his good accomplishments,
In an interview Armstrong said at the end of the day people forgive and forget and remember the good stuff you did, the Huffington Post reports.
Armstrong added it would be hard but Clinton did it in the Monica Lewinsky scandal, adding the former president loves to work, he loves people, he loves to hustle, and he is hero.
Armstrong further said Clinton is a tough guy, he is smart, surrounded himself with good people, and ten years later, he is president of the world, and it shows that it can be done, referring to the uproar that surrounded the Lewinsky affair and Clinton's subsequent return to public favor.
But Armstrong, who called the reaction to his confession that he had used performance-enhancing drugs a bloodbath, admitted that lasting repercussions of his fall from grace will likely be felt for a long time, and believes the doping stains are not going away.
During a highly anticipated interview with Oprah Winfrey in January, Armstrong confessed to doping and admitted that his story had long been one big lie.
