Does this country long for a monarchy
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.
All I've heard for the past few years is that the Clintons are going to continually run for president. I too find it odd that there is a fascination with one family. It happened with the Bush family as well. Maybe people think that it's in the genes? I don't know. I'm not really one that should be talking politics at all. I know nothing.
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.
Of course he is going to say this, this is his daughter. Just like he probably said that Hilary would be a great Secretary of state. We all know how that one worked out.
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.

Would you vote for Hilary Clinton just to have a female president?Or, do you know anyone who is? I actually do. This woman says she wants girls everywhere to be inspired, to know that they can accomplish anything.
