Chelsea Clinton is engaged to Marc Mezvinsky, and may indeed marry him on Chappy in the coming year. She ought to remember, or perhaps nobody has mentioned it yet, that when you marry somebody you marry their whole family.
It's possible for children to throw off the weight of history and genetics and be different from their family. Maybe this guy isn't a bankrupt, deceitful fraud. I mean, it's not like Chelsea is an ambitious philandering womanizer... right?
I certainly don't blame offspring for the sins of the father, or mother, for that matter.
Marc's father claimed that he was bipolar at his criminal trial, to no avail. If he really was or is bipolar, that can be an inherited disease, so presumably Chelsea has a heads up about that.
Marc's mother was the Congressional Representative in my district for 1 term, and cast the final and decisive vote in the 1993 tax hike -- she was literally walked into the chamber by others to cast her vote. Did the Clintons promise their first born in return? As the late, great Harvey Korman said in Blazing Saddles, "Too Jewish." (at about 1:15)
Or maybe Marc should be doing the remembering.
Easy joke. But seriously, I think Bill was a pretty good president. He has flaws, who doesn't.
OTOH, Hillary always seemed a political non-starter with me. A leader only in reaching the wrong answers.
Oh, come on vicki, you've never engaged in a little good humored snark? Never once?
TH's report was based on news reports. Usually, the MSM gets all of their facts straight before publishing. They have lots of editors and fact checkers, you know.
It's all in good fun: No one here thinks there is some sort of genetic predisposition in the Clinton female line for "bad" men. Sincerely, we don't think that. Nope. Just funnin...
