Chelsea Surprised By Sexist Comments

Campaigning For Mom In N. Carolina, Clinton Says She Was Sheltered From Chauvinism

(AP) Chelsea Clinton said Saturday that she didn't realize how much sexism remained in the United States until she noticed the issue at recent campaign stops for her mother.

"I didn't really get how much sexism there still was in our country until I was at a rally with my mom in New Hampshire, and someone came up to me and said, 'I just can't see a woman being commander in chief,"' Clinton said during a stop in Research Triangle Park.

She also noted another New Hampshire rally that was disrupted by men who stood up and told Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton to "Iron my shirt." And she quietly questioned why some people find humor in a nutcracker doll that looks like her mother.

The younger Clinton said that she didn't understand that sexism still existed because she has always been supported by both the men and women in her family.

"I didn't realize that that wasn't expected yet in the rest of our country," Clinton said. "I have been so profoundly more grateful than I have ever been over the past few months for my parents because of that."

Clinton spoke at the Young Democrats of North Carolina convention in Research Triangle Park - an event that normally draws only appearances for statewide races. On Saturday, campaign officials for both Obama and Clinton sent surrogates to speak, seeking support ahead of the state's May 6 primary. Newark, N.J., Mayor Cory Booker appeared on behalf of Obama.

On several occasions during her speech, Clinton referred to the North American Free Trade Agreement - a pact often blamed for the acceleration of textile and manufacturing job losses across the state - and explained why her former president father and aspiring president mother differed on the issue.

An audience member who said his mother lost her job when it was shipped to Mexico asked Clinton how he could reconcile the passage of NAFTA under the Bill Clinton administration with Hillary Rodham Clinton's opposition of the free trade agreement.

"We don't agree on everything as a family," Chelsea Clinton said. "I agree with my mother on most things - not everything. I agree with my father on most things - not everything. My mother and father agree on most things - not everything."

Clinton, along with rival Barack Obama, repeatedly criticized NAFTA during her successful Ohio primary campaign. She has said she would renegotiate trade agreements and end tax breaks for corporations that send jobs out of the country.

The 1994 landmark NAFTA pact opened trade with Canada and Mexico.

She is the “daughter” of the King of All Male Pigs and she has no idea about sexism !?!

It takes a willing suspension of disbelief for me to buy that!

And no, Chelsea, I cannot see your mother as Commander in Chief.

Not even of F-Troop.

HA...she doesn’t “see sexism” because she was RAISED with sexism, and taught to ignore it. Her “Daddy” is the biggest sexist of all!

Gee, that sure narrows it down. She's learned well from her parents to have it both ways.

Hey Chelsea, is there any sexism involved in “Affirmative Action” programs?

If so, why don’t you whine about that too?

i agree with my pet skippy on most things - not everything. but, skippy and i can agree to disagree when we don't see eye to eye on the topics that we refuse to go toe to toe on. sort of. but we do disagree when we don't agree to see that eye, or toe, through to its logical conclusion. sort of.

So odd, like they were related.

LOL, Michelle Obama plays the race card and now Chelsea plays the poor victim sex card?

Don’t they have any actual qualifications? (rhetorical question)

First Bill, now Chelsea. The ‘sexism’ card is obviously back on the table this week, now that the “Wright” card didn’t work.

Expect Hillary to cry again shortly before the PA primary.

She's hanging around with liberals primarily and finding sexism. What does that tell you about the state of the democratic party?

And I do see the humor in the nutcracker Satan doll. Years from now when Chelsea is truly on her own and her man starts looking a little to girlyman to her and the kids, she'll know the issue.

As if lardass Hillary knows the first thing about NAFTA or cares about it. All Hillary cares about is fooling these people into voting for her. And if saying NAFTA is awful does it then that's what she'll do

I dunno. When a woman is pushing thirty that sort of thing starts getting a little pathetic, if not down right embarrassing. Especially since she's supposed to be a big mover-and-shaker down at some slick NYC investment firm.

That nutcracker has far more integrity and is also far more attractive than Hillary Clinton. What an insult to a perfectly useful tool!

But seriously, I was wondering how long it would take for Hillary to play the gender card. After all, Obama has been playing the race card for some time now. And we know that Hillary isn’t one to be outdone!

I guess she never stories about daddy treating women like meat, either.
