Young Clinton Retorts

Quoted from http://riverdaughter.wordpress.com/:

 

The Confluence

Chelsea Speaks UP! Go, Chelsea, Go!!

 

Remember Monica? How could you forget. It was every fourth word on the lips of breathless media reporters and pundits during 1998-2000. They would not let it die and won’t let us forget it.

 

And they’re still at it. Today, somebody stupidly asked Chelsea Clinton about it:

 

Campaigning at Butler College in Indianapolis, an audience member asked the 28 year-old whether the Monica Lewinsky scandal had damaged her mother’s reputation.

 

“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,” Clinton responded, appearing a bit surprised by the question. The crowd immediately cheered loudly at the response.

 

Amazing! What a perfect response. I couldn’t have said it better myself. You tell’em, Chelsea!

Actually Monica wasn't more than family business. Bill has always maintained that oral sex was not adultry so he stuck to his belief.

Too bad some daughter of Satan made a to do and of course it caught fire.

How is the question to Chelsea stupid? If anything about this situation is dumb then it's definitely Chelsea's retort. How is the question asked "not any of [student's] business?" Of course it's the business of any US citizen. Chelsea shouldn't be campaigning for her Hilary if she isn't prepared to answer questions about her mother's credibility. After all, Hilary claims to have "35 years" of experience. Assuming she's including Bill's presidency as part of her "experience" then someone should explain to Chelsea that she needs to be able to answer questions about her mother’s role in that scandal; regardless of how unpleasant the topic may be.

An event happening nearly a decade ago to another party seems irrelevant to today's political situation. I doubt that you nor I would tolerate such abusive questioning-- especially since neither of us is running for office.
