Bill Clinton: Chelsea would make a great president. That was this morning's headline on Yahoo news. Now, one can say Mr. Bill was merely joking & playing with a question put forth to him by the press, but was he merely joking? I have no doubt the over privileged child of the former President & Secretary of State will enter politics. My question however has to do with America's fascination with familial members of an elected official. Why does a sexual relationship with an elected official or a child born of a union thereof merit ruling over us? You tell me.

But u get what I mean, right? The Clintons, Bushes, Kennedys ... it goes on and on. America seems to vote on name recognition, not ability or what they can do for us. I just don't understand.
Yes, I understand. When my grandmother was alive she was Republican all the way. She always voted to keep it in the family so to speak. I think people think it's in the genes....not on one's own recognition.
Bill has VERY HIGH aspirations for Chelsea. Besides, she has the stellar prequisites to enter public office which she has decided to do in the future. Bill was sincere in his assessment of Chelsea as future president.
I hope she is a better politician than a journalist. Because of her name she was given a position on a highly rated news show. Her performance was nothing short of horrible.
