Chelsea Clinton’s non-whorish campaigning took her to Texas last week, where journo Daniel A. Kusner found himself underwhelmed by the former first daughter’s “soft” gay talk.
My question came next: â€œI noticed during the gay rights question, you kept using the word â€˜civilâ€™ throughout your answer. Why canâ€™t your mother stoop low enough to grant full, equal marriage rights for same-sex couples? Or is the word â€˜marriageâ€™ too sacred for the Clintons?â€
â€œCivil unions is what my mother has supported for as long as I can remember. Iâ€™m 27, â€ Chelsea said.
â€œBut the word â€˜marriageâ€™ is off the table, right?â€ I asked.
â€œWell, sir â€¦ Sheâ€™s always supported civil unions,â€ Chelsea said.
Chelsea Clinton is 27 years old, and her forum is a college campus. So why is she speaking like such an old fart? Even Jenna Bush can tell Diane Sawyer that some of her fathersâ€™ policies are too complicated for her to necessarily agree with.
