Chelsea Clinton misses opportunity to tout Mom’s strength

How many of us had the same none-of-your-business response as Chelsea Clinton when she was asked about the effect of the Lewinsky scandal on her mother?

BTW, and this is probably just genetics, but doesn’t Chelsea remind you of her mother when she nods (yes) while the crowd applauds  her retort (as in tsk, tsk)?

Well, it turns out, the questioner was a supporter.

From Associated Press:

“The college student who got a stinging brushback from Chelsea Clinton when he asked about the Monica Lewinsky scandal said Wednesday he’s a Clinton supporter who was trying to get her to show ‘what makes Hillary so strong.’

“Evan Strange, a Butler University student who works on the school’s newspaper, The Butler Collegian, said he had asked Chelsea Clinton her opinion “on the criticism of her mother that how she handled the Lewinsky scandal might be a sign of weakness and she might not be a strong enough candidate to be president.”

“I’m a supporter of Hillary. I love Hillary,” Strange said Wednesday on CBS’ “The Early Show.” “He said he asked the question because his friends ‘always bring up that scandal. It’s not something I asked to cause trouble but to show those people what makes Hillary so strong.’ He said that by brushing him off, Chelsea Clinton missed an opportunity to show her mother’s strength.

” ‘I was very surprised’ at the rebuke, Strange said. ‘I can see where she’d get a little defensive because of the question and hearing Lewinsky over and over again, but I would like to hear her say something about Hillary rather than dismissing the question.'”
