Here's the thing that few understand about the Clinton impeachment. Like Obama, he was deeply corrupt and a serial abuser of both people and power. The multiple acts of obstruction of justice for which he was impeached were in fact the least of his crimes. So why over those?
All of his other criminal behaviour was done or abetted by other, fiercely loyal people. Take Susan MacDougal; she was willing to go to jail, and risk prison, to avoid testifying against the Clintons in Whitewater.
As with Obama, the DNC operatives with bylines abetted the corruption by ignoring or misreporting it. All of his allies knew how corrupt (and how he abused women he abused women), but protected him from consequences because they liked his policies. Remember Nina Burleigh, who expressed cheerful willingness to pleasure the presidential member with her own lips because he kept killing babies legal?
Books have been, and will continue to be written, about the amount and depth of criminality of the Clinton administration that it got away with. The Lewinsky affair was weak tea in comparison to most of the rest. So why was he tripped up by it?
Answer: As previously noted, most of the crimes were committed/covered up by underlings, like Slimy Sid Blumenthal.

But in the case of Lewinsky, he couldn't have someone else receive her lips and slip a cigar into her hoo hoo. And he couldn't let anyone else know about it.
And then, having to be deposed in the Jones lawsuit, he had no choice except to either tell the truth (and provide evidence against himself), or to perjure himself and suborn perjury from others, to prevent Jones from getting a fair trial. Being Bill Clinton, he chose the latter.
Of course, what he didn't know was that Monica had taken Tripp's good advice, and kept the dress. If she hadn't, then the Clinton mob was fully prepared to destroy her as nut, slut, and stalker. The dress blew up their vile scheme, and Clinton was shown to be the corrupt scumbag.
So that's why, despite all his other much worse corruption and crimes, he was impeached for the least of it: Because it was the one thing that he'd done personally, and none of his henchpeople could protect him from the consequences of the behavior.

The end.
