Robert F. "Bobby" Kennedy, kid brother of President John F. Kennedy, was killed 40 years ago, while campaigning for the Democratic presidential nomination. Bobby was a crusader for racial and economic justice, and when he died, many thought the "dream" died too.
Not so, say the women he left behind. Glamour talked to Bobby's daughters and granddaughters - yep, all 14 of 'em - to get full scoop on how they keep their father and grandfather's dreams alive through continued public service.
Chelsea Clinton wishes her mom and all moms a happy mother's day, reminding everyone: "Your little girls can be anything they want to be when they grow up, even if it's to be the second woman president of the United States."(Hmm.. this video must have been filmed before Barack Obama's big NC victory, but the sentiment is nice just the same.)
"You're wearing that?!" We've all gasped in utter shock and asked our mom that question
at least once too many times. And our moms have (unreasonably) asked us the same.
No different from the next mom, Hillary Clinton likes to wear embarassing outfits and complain that her daughter's floor length skirts are "too short." She dishes on her experiences as a mom in an interview and town hall meeting sponsored by momlogic, a website that's totally biased in support of your mother's point of view.

Michelle and Barack Obama (mostly Michelle) were on Rachael Ray about a week ago. Rachael tried to play it impartial, but her sparkly eyes and beaming smile totally gave her away as an Obama supporter. She just ate the Obamas up!
Michelle and Barack have date night once a week.
Rachael implied that she loves her dog Isaboo more than the Obamas love their kids. You know the Obamas talked about that later. (But in Rach's defense, she was clearly star struck and these things just happen when you're star struck.)
The Obamas first dance was was to "Unforgettable" (presumably the Nat King Cole version, but if not, they're not as cool as we thought).
Michelle walked down the aisle to a Stevie Wonder song at their wedding.
Michelle said she watches what the kids eat. (Ugh! That probably means no sugar cereals. As in no Lucky Charms and no Cocoa Puffs. And worse, no prizes in the box!)
At the end of the interview, Michelle fondly reached for Rachael and said, "Girl...." Michelle is so regular, and we love it!
