I don’t know about you…but, i think it was rude of the person who asked Chelsea Clinton whether she felt that the whole issue of Monica Lewinski hurts her mother’s credibility.
How many of us are, or would like to be, responsible for publicly critiquing our family member’s choices in life? We as children, adult or not, are NOT responsible for accounting for our parent’s successes or failures. It wasn’t a question that was appropriately asked of the right person. Why not ask it of Bill Clinton or Hillary herself?
If the person asking the question truly believes that the scandal of years past hurts the credibility of Senator Clinton, then so be it; ask the question of Senator Clinton or her husband. I believe it crosses the line of appropriate behavior.
I am not taking sides in the issue of who should; or, who should not be the democratic candidate running for president. What i am saying is that it wasn’t a valid question for Chelsea to be asked.
First of all, no matter how Chelsea truly processes that whole painful part of her family history and the history of our country in regards to how she lives her day to day life …i think the fact that she is out there supporting her mother says what she thinks about whether her mother is credible.
Say what you will about whether Senator Clinton should or should not drop out of the race…but, i think that Chelsea handled herself gracefully in the way that she responded to the questioner.
She took a large uncomfortable pause and then said…”I don’t think that that is any of your business”…and then proceeded to say…”I also don’t think that should be the last question”. That, is grace under pressure. I am sure should would have much rather let that person have it verbally…but she rose above it.
