Skip to comments.5 reasons Chelsea Clinton is bombing at NBC News

Hillary and Bill Clinton are at the top of their game. Their daughter, Chelsea, not so much. Why is the "dork diva" of TV news floundering?
We're in something of a "Clinton renaissance" right now, says Michael Hastings at BuzzFeed. Hillary is a widely respected Secretary of State and "officially Internet famous," and Bill is a "universally beloved" philanthropist and elder statesman. "Then theres Chelsea Clinton," who finally stepped into the spotlight in December as a special NBC correspondent. Critics call her occasional on-air "Making a Difference" segments boring and anonymous NBC staffers and executives tell Hastings that Clinton is "terrible" on camera, entitled, and short on journalistic chops. Why is TV "dork diva" Chelsea not sharing in the Clinton glow? Here, five theories:
1. Clinton has no TV or journalism experience...
2. Nobody wants to hear about do-gooders
3. But she refuses to get personal
4. Nepotism is a bad hiring practice
5. Forget the sniping, Chelsea's doing fine

6. Horse face
I just got that vomit taste in my mouth.
Can the Obamas and Clintons and their minions invade some isolated island and just fight it out themselves-HUNGER GAME style.
No cure for stupid evidently.
..................After the election, if Obama wins then the Clintons can push him out and have 4 years to rebuild before the next election. .....................
Someone send Hitlery a copy of the forged birth certificate!
Bill & Hill just parked Webb Jr. at NBC until she’s old enough to run for president.
Good start on a book - keep going! ;-)
The limitation on rights quotes were news to me. I was paying attention back then - maybe the quotes were under-reported?
LOL/and by all 'appearances'; right!
The stuff of myths; and what these people, unfortunately, survive and survive well, by.
OMG, there is actually someone uglier than Michelle or Helen.
Hope this doesn’t start another Clinton odd deaths list.
Remember, we were going to get two for one if Bill was elected. Co-Presidents.
Her Secret Service name should have been - Iron Britches.
I can see her pushing Obama around.
I can see Moochel and Hill in a cage match.
“Rational and insightful analysis - as far as it goes. But I’m not thinking Obama will be “dumped” - I’m thinking he’ll be barred through various new State laws requiring proof of natural born status to be on the ballot.”
Constitutionally, would the states have the power to keep him off the ticket if he cannot PROVE birth certificate & select service & residency in Indonesia making him an Indonesian, not American?
That would be nice.
“Bill Clinton, not to be out done by Obama, said if he had a daughter, she would look like Webb Hubble..”
It’s those Webb Hubble looking lips.
IIRC, she had a chin implant.
Is Webb Hubble still alive?
There was a FR thread recently that the Clintons knew Obama was not qualified but they were threatened that something would happen to Chelsea if the info came out.
And, if there is one thing the Clintons know very much about: threats and bizarre deaths.
“Bill & Hill just parked Webb Jr. at NBC until shes old enough to run for president.”
And, to start grooming her in NBC’s playground.
NBC has just got to be just tickled pink.
