Chelsea Gives Birth to Baby Girl! Congratulations Bill and Hillary Clinton!
"Bill and Hillary Clinton have become grandparents after their daughter, Chelsea Clinton, gave birth to a daughter named Charlotte.
Chelsea Clinton announced the birth on Twitter. "Marc and I are full of love, awe and gratitude as we celebrate the birth of our daughter, Charlotte Clinton Mezvinsky,` she posted.
In a joint statement, Bill and Hillary Clinton said they were "blessed, grateful, and so happy` to become grandparents."
My heartfelt congratulations to Chelsea Clinton, her husband, and her famous parents, Bill and Hillary Clinton on the birth of baby Charlotte.
Bill and Hillary Clinton have committed a litany of political transgressions, but today isn`t the time for political recriminations, it`s a time of joy and celebration. Certainly, Republicans, Democrats and Independents can join together in congratulating the Clinton clan.
Now that I`ve got the niceties out of the way, what are the political implications of Charlotte`s birth on Hillary Clinton`s political aspirations?
Hillary has a well-deserved reputation as a tough lady, being a grandmother can only serve to soften her image.
I guarantee that Chelsea and her baby will join Hillary on the campaign trail. Kissing babies humanizes political candidates; Hillary will garner a lot of sympathy simply by holding and kissing her granddaughter.
As somebody who is loathe to see either Hillary Clinton or Jed Bush run for president, we live in a democracy and not a monarchy after all, I hope that Hillary will be so thrilled at being a grandmother that she will forego running for president.
