Clinton Daughter to Announce Wedding Engagement in June
San Francisco Examiner ^ | Week of April 4, 2002 | P.J. Corkery

Posted on 04/07/2002 11:26:22 AM PDT by codebreaker

Daddy Bill Clinton took his daughter and her beau, the pride of Belvedere Ca., Ian Klaus, around the new Tate Modern Art Gallery in London last week.

Says a conviently placed Londoner to a London paper, 'President Clinton seemed comfortable with Ian and glad that his daughter found a decent man.'

The trio toured the galleries with the rest of the public, but with a security detail of 12

Bubba bought drinks for the young couple.

Chelsea and Ian, who met at a rally of students at Oxford post-9/11, are expected to announce their engagement by June

In case you are wondering, Klaus's parents, the eminent and respectable Robin and Patricia of Belvedere, are both longtime Democrats.

Maybe someone could buy them graduate degrees, as it is unlikely they'll actually earn them.

"...glad that his daughter found a decent man."

A joke, right?

I don't really know much about Chelsea, so I won't comment on her suitability as a wife.

But I really can't imagine a much worse fate than having Hillary as my mother-in-law (shudder).

I heard she will move back to Chappaqua, sponge off the Secret Service there, go partying in Vernon Jordan's apartment-get a glamorous make work job in Manhattan and then run for Congress in upstate NY.

All from Mommy's and Daddy's house of course in Chappaqua, while living in Manhattan..just like a Clinton

Is Belvedere anywhere near Sarn Quentin? Could prove convenient in a few years.

Is Alcatraz still in workable shape, Ian could go see his mother in law after her 'career' in the U.S. Senate comes to its inevitable end.

The sotry was that either Ian is a Republican or his parents used to be GOP backers..I guess the NY Post's page six will have to find that one out

I've posted it elsewhere, but according to the same SF Examiner columnist, the Klauses are Dems. It was one of the tabloids that reported they were conservatives.

HE'S A ‘DAD' RINGER
By BRIDGET HARRISON

- February 3, 2002 -- There may be one very good reason why Chelsea Clinton has fallen for her new man, fellow Oxford University student Ian Klause - he's a dead ringer for her father at the same age.
Klause's mop of long curly hair, easygoing manner, buggy eyes - even his Rhodes Scholar status - mirrors the image of a youthful Bubba at Oxford 33 years ago.
And a new study has discovered that men and woman are far more likely to pick partners who resemble mom and pop.
[snip] Chelsea met Klause, 22, through a close-knit bunch of American friends last semester. The pair began dating in November and have gotten serious in recent weeks.
But it's not just the mop of hair, broad shoulders, ruddy cheeks and alluring grin that make Klause, an American, so much like a young Bill Clinton.
His outgoing personality, ability to mix easily with British students in the often anti-American university and a love of the good life makes Klause seem like a chip of the old Clinton block.
[snip]
Last week, Chelsea's two bodyguards were left sipping mineral water and averting their eyes at the bar in the trendy Quad restaurant while the former First Daughter and new beau openly made out and giggled together on a nearby leather sofa.
The pair even like to party one block from her pop's old digs in North Oxford - where the ex-prez smoked dope but "didn't inhale."
[snip]
Chelsea and Klause also sometimes dash 50 miles to London for a night out, just as Bill did in his college days.
The only difference is that cash-strapped Bill hitchhiked to the capital, while Chelsea jumps in a limo to meet her new showbiz friends.

Sometimes the kids rebel against the parents and Ian being a GOP'er would be against the family tradition it seems..

They'll get Terry McAuliffe and some of their other scumbag friends to donate funds so that they can attempt "The Wedding of the Century." (gag!)

This wedding will make Liza Minellis shakedown in New York look like amateur hour.

Hillary and X-42 probably have the phones going already...

While in ground school for my airman certificate,I learned very early on that missing just ONE class can set you back considerably.The course wasnt as long as Oxford post grad one,but Im pretty skeptical that these two will earn what ever degree they are seeking.These two are away from Oxford more than they are in it.How do they keep up the workload? Or does she have the USSS ferry her work to her,or perhaps even do it? Chelsea Clinton is as sleazy as her parents,and to the Chelsea protectors,why dont you try to send your kids to Oxford,have them miss a QUARTER of the time Chelsea did and see if your kids pass.Granted my dispatch certificate isnt an Oxford education,but I had to work pretty hard to get it.I certainly wouldnt have passed if I was shuttling the USSS from place to place.

Oh, my goodness.......do these people not read the papers? Don't they know that every single person that touches this trash is tainted for life?

As far as I am concerned, the second the engagement is announced, they are FAIR game.

The only good thing to come of this is that Chelsea and Ian will take over Vernon Jordan's bachelor pad in Manhattan that was intended for Bubbas romps. (and happens to be right down the street from Monica!)

Clintoon will be sleeping at the Harlem office, getting a hotel room or (Gasp!) commuting home from work to Chappaqua.
