Back in 1992 when candidate Bill Clinton had the opportunity to tell intrusive questioners where to go when they asked about his underpants, he chickened out. And answered.
Not so, Clinton’s daughter, Chelsea.
The only child of the former president and Sen. Hillary Clinton has been out on her own impressing crowds across the country in recent weeks stumping for her mom. Presumably, the question had to come at some point. And presumably Chelsea was ready.
Tuesday it came. The Monica Lewinsky question. (Please note, it was not the media that inquired.)
There she was in Indianapolis talking to a crowd of maybe 200 students at Butler University, seeking votes for the state’s May 6 primary. It was near the end of the session when some guy asked Chelsea if her mother’s credibility had been injured by the infamous sexual relationship her father had with the White House intern.
“Wow,” said Chelsea, “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.”
Then, she fired: “And I do not think that is any of your business.”
So, Chelsea has been to 70 college campuses and has never been asked the most obvious question on everyone’s mind? That, in itself, points out the intellectual collusion among our institutes of higher learning. Rather than being an environment where people are encouraged to consider many sides to issues, universities use the shield of political correctness to avoid dealing with uncomfortable issues.
And you’re wrong, Chelsea. It is our business to consider how a person who is now attempting to get elected President of the United States handled an issue that caused the impeachment of our country’s commander in chief. The fact that the impeached president was her husband has no bearing on the situation. And by never admitting, to this day, that she was wrong, Hillary showed that her allegiance was, as is still, with her husband (or rather, her political future) rather than with facts and law of the land.
Also telling, is the insertion in the story that it was not the media who asked the longed for question. This being the same media who has never questioned Bill Clinton in the rape of Juanita Broaddrick.
