The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Chelsea Clinton simultaneously displayed her father’s arrogance and her mother’s political tin ear yesterday.
Miss Clinton was shilling for her mother at Butler University in Indiana, when a reporter for the student paper, The Butler Collegian, asked for her opinion “on the criticism of her mother that how she handled the Lewinsky scandal might be a sign of weakness and she might not be a strong enough candidate to be president”.
“Wow, you’re the first person actually that’s ever asked me that question in the, I don’t know maybe, 70 college campuses I’ve now been to, and I do not think that is any of your business,” Miss Clinton sniped.
Yes, Miss Clinton, just as Sen. McCain’s contempt for freedom of speech and Sen. Obama’s atrocious judgment are matters of concern to the entire world, so is the strength or weakness of your mother’s character, because they are applying for a position in which the winner will exercise power that affects the entire world.
I thought that’s why your mother wanted the job.
