The daughter of U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton has been campaigning in Kentucky as the Democratic primaries wind toward the state's May 20 contest.

Chelsea Clinton's appearance Tuesday at the University of Kentucky marks the third time in four weeks a Clinton has stumped in the Bluegrass state. And her father, former President Bill Clinton, is scheduled to be in Pikeville on Thursday for a fundraiser.

At the university, Chelsea Clinton took a variety of questions about the Iraq war, hate crimes legislation and education from an audience of about 250. Later she answered questions from about 150 students and staff at Jefferson Community and Technical College in Louisville. Around 100 people showed up for a question-and-answer session Tuesday evening at a Louisville restaurant. Read more

Students at college campuses who have questioned Chelsea Clinton about her mother’s reaction to the Monica Lewinski affair ought to be commended. Young voters need to be informed about Hillary Clinton's past to properly assess her character and qualifications for the high office she seeks.

Hillary's reaction to her husband’s compulsive womanizing was not to rebuke him or distance herself from it, but to retain a private detective to dig up dirt on the women involved. Hardly what one would expect from someone of presidential stature.

Then there’s the lying about the pregnant woman refused treatment in an Ohio hospital, the lying about dodging sniper fire in Bosnia, the lying about her brokering the peace in Northern Ireland; the lying about her economic expertise, the lying about her Congressional record (of the 20 bills she managed to get passed in her eight years in the Senate, 16 were non-consequential stuff like naming post offices and courthouses, recognizing individuals and congratulating lacrosse teams.)

Then, going back to her earlier life, there’s her flunking of the DC bar exam and keeping it secret for 30 years; the Travelgate, Pardongate, Chinagate, Whitewatergate, Cattle-futuresgate, Fellatiogate; the punitive IRS audits of Clinton critics; the verbal abuse of staff members and betrayal of colleagues; the using of uniformed Marines as waiters; the 50+ violent and sudden deaths during the Clinton reign. All this well-documented information can be had at a click of button on the Internet.

The no-holds-barred rules of engagement advocated by Hillary’s de facto running mate, Husband Bill, should apply to daughter Chelsea as well.

"If a football player doesn't want to get tackled or want the risk of an occasional clip he shouldn't put the pads on."

The Clinton duo cannot go on “pimping” their daughter (MSNBC’s David Shuster was right) and expect everybody to treat her with kid gloves.
