In a Facebook post Thursday, Chelsea Clinton welcomed her dad to Twitter.  She might as well have announced that her mom will run for president in 2016.

Let's see...  Bill Clinton is on Twitter.  Chelsea, who is well known for shunning publicity and shooing away the press, has become an active participant on Facebook.  And Chelsea gives TED talks to teens that are then circulated online.

It's called early adoption of a social media strategy folks.  Of course Hillary is running.


In her recent TEDxTeen talk, Chelsea Clinton encouraged young people to step up and make a change.

The economy sucks, so we thought we'd tickle your funny bone to make you feel better.  In this David Letterman clip, Chris Rock gives Bill Clinton the heads up that Hillary lost.

 

 

So, did Chris have you rolling on the floor, laughing your ass off?  Or did you take offense to his comments? 

Do you think the Clintons support Barack Obama for real or just in public because they "have" to?  Holla in the comments, yo.

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.

On a visit to the Butler University Bulldogs, Chelsea Clinton showed that she can be quite the bulldog herself.  When a student asked Chelsea if she thinks the Monica Lewinsky scandal hurt her mother's credibility, she quipped, "...I do not think that's any of your business."


Do. Not. Mess. With. Chelesa.

Hillary Clinton has earned the support of the majority of African American female voters, but she wants an even bigger piece of that pie.  She sat down with Isabel Wilkerson of Essence, a magazine that targets African American women, for an interview published in the current issue (November 2007).  Here are a few exerpts of what she had to say about her marriage and family:

On her marriage:
“I know the truth of my life and of my marriage, my relationship and partnership, my deep abiding friendship with my husband. It's been enormously supportive to me through most of my life. Now obviously we've had challenges as everybody in the world knows. “But I never doubted that it was a marriage worth investing in even in the midst of those challenges,” she says, “and I'm really happy that I made that decision. Again, not a decision for everybody. And I think it's so important for women to stand up for the right of women to make a decision that is best for them.”

On the most romantic thing her husband has done for her: She hesitates for longer than is comfortable, then she says, “Oh he's so romantic. He's always bringing me back things from his trips. He brought me a giant wooden giraffe from Africa. Oh, he bought me this watch,” she said, holding out her left wrist to show off a Chanel watch, its bracelet made of white cubes shaped like elegant dentures, if you can picture it. “I had dental surgery, and he said it reminded him of teeth.”

Outside of work, what her proudest moment is:
“Chelsea,” she says without hesitation.

Pick up Essence to read the entire interview.

Bill Clinton is hosting a book party for Chelsea's ex-boyfriend, Ian Klauss, who penned Elvis Is Titanic.  The move is unusual in that, at least, I hope my dad isn't throwing any festivas for any of my exes. 

Chelsea and her friends are expected to attend the book party, and Ian has dedicated the book to Chelsea.

Apparently, Chelsea and Ian really meant it when they said "let's still be friends" at the end of their break up talk. (We all say that, but who ever really means it?) 

In an interview with the Guardian (UK publication), Bill Clinton says that, when elected president, Hillary plans to ask him "and former Republican presidents" to work on repairing America's image overseas. You can listen to parts of the interview here.

Sunday's Washington Post profiled Hillary Clinton's mom, Dorothy Emma Howell Rodham.  Hillary has said before that her mom is the inspiration behind her success: "...I owe it to my mother, who never got a chance to go to college, who had a very difficult childhood, but who gave me a belief that I could do whatever I set my mind."  As for whether Hillary gets the "mom endorsement" for her presidential candidacy, Mrs. Rodham told a 2004 Oprah audience that if Hillary ran for president, "She would do great.  I have to say that."
