That’s the whole reason behind Chelsea’s TV gig at NBC. Caroline Kennedy’s Senate bid fell apart when she couldn’t muster a single coherent response to softball questions from a friendly interviewer. Sorta like Uncle Teddy’s infamous 1980 meltdown with Roger Mudd. And at least Teddy had an excuse—he was probably loaded at the time.
Chelsea’s stint with NBC News is aimed at giving her the “media skills” required to run for public office. But she’s as dull as dishwater and about as bright as a broken lightbulb. Unfortunately, she’ll win election in New York; in a competitive state, she’d get creamed.
One more note: after Chelsea’s stint at NBC, she will quietly divorce her layabout husband. Not exactly the kind of spouse she needs in politics, and he’s bound to get caught in a sex or drinking scandal in the near future. Hell. the Clintons will probably engineer the episode just to get rid of him.
