WASHINGTON (AP) - Hillary Rodham Clinton says she wishes Monica Lewinsky "well" but the affair involving her husband is not something she thinks about.

Clinton says in an ABC News interview that she dealt with it at the time and she has "moved on."

The former secretary of state and first lady says if she could say anything to Lewinsky, she would "wish her well." She says she hopes Lewinsky is "about to think about her life" and find meaning and satisfaction in her life.

Vanity Fair magazine published a first-person account last month from Lewinsky in which she said former President Bill Clinton "took advantage" of her, but that their affair was consensual.

Clinton says it's "not something that I spend a lot of time thinking about."

    NYC woman finds wedding dress lost after Sandy

    When a New York City dry cleaners was destroyed by Superstorm Sandy, the only item to survive was Nicole Pagliaro's wedding dress. But her name was lost to owner Hector Pacheco, who reopened after more than a year and in a new location. Pagliaro had brought the dress to him after her 2012 wedding. When the storm swamped and shuttered the Staten Island store, she assumed it was lost. But two weeks ago, she took a different route to work and spotted it in the window.
