Chelsea Clinton disses 9-year old

Gee...here's a surprise: a member of the Clinton family who can't answer a direct question. I guess Chelsea Clinton doesn't have the chops to handle a 9-year old reporter:

Sydney Rieckhoff, a Cedar Rapids fourth grader and "kid reporter" for Scholastic News, has posed questions to seven Republican and Democratic presidential hopefuls as they've campaigned across Iowa this year. But when she approached the 27-year-old Chelsea after a campaign event Sunday, she got a different response.

"Do you think your dad would be a good 'first man' in the White House?" Sydney asked, but Chelsea brushed her question aside.

"I'm sorry, I don't talk to the press and that applies to you, unfortunately. Even though I think you're cute," Chelsea told the pint-sized journalist.



The reporter the Clinton's are afraid of...


To be fair, Chelsea Clinton really doesn't do interviews...although she doesn't seem to mind playing reporter herself.


But she's out in Iowa grubbing votes for her mom. It seems like it may have been a good move to just answer Sydney's question with a simple yes or no before the Clinton thugs staffers could shoo the intrepid reporter away.


Sydney is a member of the liberal press so at least this dis isn't costing Hillary a vote:


For her part, Sydney looked a bit crestfallen after Chelsea turned her away. But luckily for Hillary Clinton, Sydney's mother has made up her mind to caucus for the former first lady.


"I like her position on family values and health care. And I think it's time we have a female president," Robyn Rieckhoff said.

Chelsea Clinton was out campaigning, if she does not want to answer questions she should have remained at home. Her mother wants all the positive reaction from her daughter's presence without the negative. If you put yourself in the limelight it is only reasonable that you answer questions. I for one feel that she should either stop campaigning or answer questions.
