You’re not gonna believe this. My wife and were sitting in a bar in Lanaii and in comes Chelsea Clinton. So to be polite, we ordered her a drink.
Next thing we knew, she was sitting at our table. So we got to chatting, and we found her delightful.
A couple hours and a few Mai Tais later we got around to the topic of her parents.
So I got up the nerve to ask her what she thought about her mom for president.
She leaned in, and said, in what I assume was her best conspiratorial voice, “You know my mom would kill me, I mean, she won’t let me talk to anyone … but I am secretly rooting for Obama.”
My wife and I were speechless.
“I mean,” she continued, “I love my mom, but she’s a little over protective. I mean that whole bit about how they want me to be 13? Please. I’m 28 frickin years old. Who wants an over protective mom for president?
“I mean Obama’s just got his head screwed on straight, you know? He’s not just sitting there thinking ‘Oh, I’m a Democrat, I have to think this way’, or ‘I’m a Republican I have to think that way’. He uses his own goddamn brain, you know? Have you read his book? My mom says he doesn’t know the issues. Ha! that’s a laugh.”
Yeah, I said, we both read it.
And he totally gets it, I said, but I just hope he can fix it.
“Well,” Chelsea said, “at least he knows what’s wrong. I’ll think he’ll do more than write a 1700 page health care plan you know what I mean? ”
“Don’t tell anybody I said that,” said Chelsea, “my mom would kill me.”
