Chelsea Clinton Knows the Value of Family … Do You?

There is no question that Chelsea Clinton is a poised, articulate, admirable young woman.  Somehow, against all odds when you consider other children that grew up in the White House glow, she has managed to avoid tabloid drama and pretty much any sort of negative press whatsoever.

And while her parents, former United States President Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, unquestionably own a great deal of the credit, Chelsea herself …

Al Gore Accused of Being a “Crazed Sex Poodle” (Yes, I’m Serious)

Photo of Poodle Humping
A massage therapist from Oregon has accused Al Gore of inappropriate sexual advances that allegedly took place in 2006 at Portland’s Hotel Lucia, referring to him as a “crazed sex poodle” in the process.  The passage of time (it’s been nearly four years since the alleged incident) and Gore’s reputation as a rather staid man contrast with the lurid details … and together lead to a necessary revisiting of both the delicate issue of reluctance in the reporting of sexual assault and the possible fabrication of sexual assault allegations for specific (and usually financial) means.

From Oregon Live:

In her detailed Jan. 8, 2009, statement to a Portland sexual assault investigator, the woman said she was called to the hotel about 10:30 p.m. Oct. 24, 2006, to provide a massage for Gore, who was registered under the name “Mr. Stone.” Once inside his ninth-floor suite, she said he pushed her hand to his groin, fondled her buttocks and breasts, tongue-kissed her and threw her down on the bed as she tried to thwart his advances.

She also said Gore had finished a beer and opened a bottle of Grand Marnier while she was in the room.

While the Police Bureau considers it a closed case, it said it would reopen it if new evidence is received.

So a report was made in January of 2009, well over a year after the alleged incident, that Al Gore got drunk and tried to get up to some sexual hanky-panky with a massage therapist.  And  it’s just coming out now.  Um … call me crazy, but — nevermind.  Actually, the whole story’s crazy.  You’ll see.

The woman told investigators that she informed two friends and kept the clothes she wore that night, including her black pants with stains on them. But Portland police didn’t contact any of the woman’s friends, obtain the potential evidence or interview anyone at the hotel, records show.

Not to make light, but was Al Gore trying to be Bill Clinton or something?

Chelsea Clinton’s Upcoming Wedding is All Over the News … But Does This Perpetuate the “Wedding Day As Best Day of My Life” Myth?

It’s a magical time for Chelsea Clinton as her wedding day finally approaches.  On July 31st, Clinton will be marrying Marc Mezvinsky in a location that hasn’t yet been named — word is it’s somewhere in New York and not Martha’s Vineyard, which was the long-speculated site.

Okay, whatever you want to say about Bill and Hillary Clinton, there is no denying that they have raised a classy, intelligent, motivated, and poised daughter.  Just the fact that they took Herculean measures to keep her out of the limelight speaks of their love and good parenting skills.

While she’s reportedly having an Oscar de la Renta dress designed for her (and let’s be real, I for one would jump at that opportunity), she has also given a mandate that makes my regard for her grow even stronger.

A Swap in Powers: What Do You Think of Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden Trading Spaces?

After Barack Obama secured the Presidential nomination for the Democrats, there was a movement to have Hillary Clinton run beside him as veep.  Obama ultimately went with Joe Biden, instead naming Clinton Secretary of State.  Now, a Washington Post columnist is suggesting that perhaps it’s time for a swap in duties.

Sally Quinn feels that Clinton has risen above the potential obstacles that might have impacted Obama’s decision to go with Biden:

Clinton has done an incredible job as secretary of state. First of all, she has worked harder than anyone should ever be expected to. She has managed to do the impossible: She is the ambassador of the United States to the world, maintaining her credibility while playing the bad guy to President Obama’s good guy, such as with North Korea, Iran and Israel, and still looking good. She has been a true team player. If Clinton is dissatisfied with her role, you would never know it. She has been loyal and supportive to the president and has maintained a good relationship with him and with others in the White House. If she is being left out of the policymaking, or being sent on trips to keep her out of town, she has not shown it. She is cheerful, thoughtful, serious and diligent. There are no horror stories about her coming out of the State Department. Most notable, though, is that Bill Clinton has not been the problem that so many anticipated. He has been supportive of her and of Obama, and he has stayed out of the limelight and been discreet about his own life.
