Chelsea's Clinton's new gig

(CNN) – Chelsea Clinton has taken on yet another job, this time at a New York University institute designed for multifaith discussions and leadership training.

She's now listed as a co-chair and co-founder of NYU's Of Many Institute, which describes itself on its website as a "a groundbreaking academic and programmatic model for multifaith education at the university level."

"The Institute supports a new generation of religious and civic leaders who, deeply rooted in their own religious and spiritual traditions, reach across faith boundaries to solve social problems together," the description reads.

Previously, Clinton was an assistant vice provost at NYU. She's also a special correspondent at NBC News, and plays an active role in the Clinton Global Initiative, an organization founded by her father, former President Bill Clinton.

Clinton identifies as a Christian, and her husband Marc Mezvinsky is Jewish. Her new role was first reported by the New York Post.

    Good luck to her. I'm sure she will do well. However, whoever said she could be a news correspondent should be looking for a job.

    You do people no good when you put them in high visibility situations for which they are not suited. Not a slam on her as she is with 99.9% of the people who couldn't and shouldn't be a news correspondent.

    so how many hundreds of thousands of dollars is she getting paid every year for each one of these figurehead positions? talk about capitalizing on her name... a nice scam if you can get it. of course it helps being the child of an ex-president with all of the politcal connections to make you rich without really doing anything.

    Psst...hey, CNN...we don't have royalty in this country and her personal life is not automatically political news just because of whose womb she crawled out of.

    Amen to the sentiment, Sniffit. But it appears that Americans, from almost the beginning, have had a fascination with our home-grown "nobility": from the Adamses to the Roosevelts to the Kennedys to the Clintons and Bushes. 1 out 11 of our Presidents were fathers/sons. If Clinton wins in 16, that'll be husband/wife. Lord knows how often the others turned out to be cousins (I think the Roosevelts were related to everybody, basically).

    And all this is quite apart from Americans' fascination with BRITISH royalty, as the "screaming women" (according to CNN) who "flocked" around Prince Harry last week demonstrates. Makes me think you can take the small-r republican out of a nobility-based oligarchy, but ya can't take the urge to star-bleep out of the small-r republican.

    anonymous – Is it a prerequisite for you right-wing sub-humans to proudly display your ignorance and illiteracy by always commenting in lower case letters, with major grammatical errors? You really ought to read a book, or go back to the 4th grade.
