Chelsea Clinton to make 100th college visit

 Chelsea Clinton has campaigned hard for her mother.

(CNN)—Chelsea Clinton will mark her 100th college campus appearance Thursday at Villanova University.

The former and potential future first daughter spent the early part of her mother’s presidential campaign out of public eye living in New York. However she has stepped to the forefront of the campaign in recent months as she seeks to garner support from younger voters, the majority of whom have supported Barack Obama’s White House bid.

Obama and Hillary Clinton ran evenly in Massachusetts and California among voters under 30 and Clinton won the youth vote in Arkansas, but large majorities of young voters have supported the Illinois senator in most other primary contests.

In addition to answering tough questions about her father, one recent question drew some additional attention. When asked whether she thought her mother would be a better president than her father, she said, “I don’t take anything for granted, but hopefully with Pennsylvania’s help she will be our next president. And yes, I do think she’ll be a better president.”

    If the supporters for Hillary can't take the pressure, then you need to give it up. Hillary supporters like to dish-it-out, but they sure can not handle it! Shame on you.

    Sasha -

    Let's not be too quick to brand who is more NASTY and HATEFUL, the banter cuts both ways. Many Clinton supporters are far from Saints themselves.

    So let's play fair and call it like it is. Both sides have "bashers".

    I'm not sure Chelsea Clinton's role is doing any good than harm. Diplomacy is everything in public relations. It seems she doesn't have it at the moment.

    Go home and spend mommy and daddy's millions. You are a spoiled brat who is jockeying to get yourself elected to some office in a few years. You are in this for yourself. Selfishness is a hallmark of the Clinton family.

    What ever you say is in vain. How can Elton John call us Americans misogynists for not voting for your mum, Hillary. In fact, tell Elton John that he is the misogynist for marrying a man. Idiot.

    Shame on you and Hillary for playing race and sex cards. Hillary can NEVER be a role model to my kids. Pathological LIARS.
