"Let her have her day. She's due. Chelsea has been a national public
figure against her will since she was 12, and in all that time she has
never embarrassed her family--or us. Before she went off to Columbia
to study public health policy, she worked for a New York management
consulting firm and a hedge fund where her colleagues unanimously (and
off-the-recordly) reported that she was a stupendously hard worker. She
recognized early on that when celebrity is thrust on you, the trick is
to learn to do something besides being famous."
- Gail Collins
in The New York Times on political children and Chelsea Clinton's wedding
