BLITZER's BLOG: Running for president is a family affair

(CNN) – I remember interviewing Hillary Clinton near the end of her very grueling run for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2008. She had been on the campaign trail for a long time. She had worked really hard, especially in the final months as Barack Obama was challenging her. You could see the strain she was under.

During those tough times, her daughter, Chelsea, suddenly had become very visible on the campaign trail. She spoke for her mother all the time, often introducing her at campaign events, and did very well. You could see how proud Hillary Clinton was.

(CNN) – The wedding reception revelry for Chelsea Clinton and Marc Mezvinsky stretched well into the early hours of Sunday morning with guests offered a 2 A.M. snack of grilled cheese sandwiches, brownies and popcorn for the ride home, according to an invited guest.

The source says the former President Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton gave a welcoming address to the attendees. And the dinner reception included a choice of beef or arctic char (fish), risotto and salad.

The former first daughter and her longtime beau married in a much discussed but highly secretive wedding in Rhinebeck, N.Y. on Saturday.

Wedding bells ring for Chelsea Clinton


(CNN) - The worst-kept secret in the political world is expected to culminate Saturday as Chelsea Clinton marries Marc Mezvinsky at a posh venue in Rhinebeck, New York.

The entire town has been sworn to secrecy, but many storefront windows bear signs saying "Congratulations Marc & Chelsea" and similar messages.

"You could make a case that this is the most significant thing to happen in Rhinebeck since Washington's army drove the British out of Rhinebeck back in the 1700s," said Jim Langon, editor of the Hudson Valley News newspaper, who was the first to report that the wedding would take place there.

The parents of the bride, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President Clinton, were seen arriving at a formal dinner at the Beekman Arms Inn in Rhinebeck on Friday night.

Also attending were former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, presidential adviser Vernon Jordan and numerous young couples presumed to be friends of the bride and groom.

"This is the wedding of the century," wedding planner Tatiana Byron said.

Clinton: Chelsea looks beautiful every day

(CNN) – Camera crews caught up with former President Bill Clinton on Friday in Rhinebeck, New York, the site of his daughter's upcoming wedding.

While he mostly kept quiet as he moved through the crowd that had gathered after his arrival, when asked by a reporter if he was excited, Clinton said "you bet"

The follow up question: "Is your daughter going to look beautiful?"

"She looks beautiful every day to me," Clinton said

There are reports of lavish spending on the wedding: seven figures, some reports say even eight figures.

But a longtime Clinton family friend pushes back, telling CNN National Correspondent Jessica Yellin the cost is actually less than $1 million. Regarding the many wedding planners who are guessing at the cost of Chelsea's wedding – this Clinton family friend tells CNN, "Maybe it's because these planners said they couldn't do it for less than 2 to 5 million – that's exactly why they weren't picked as the planner."

Not invited to Chelsea Clinton's wedding? Neither are we.






Rhinebeck, NY (CNN) - For days, the grass in front of the Beekman Arms Inn in Rhinebeck, New York has looked like the White House North Lawn. The hotel, reportedly hosting many of Chelsea Clinton's wedding guests, is surrounded by reporters, all clamoring for the smallest detail about the closely-guarded affair.

Clinton, 30, is expected to wed investment banker Marc Mezvinsky, 32, in the town on Saturday at Astor Courts, a posh estate built more than a century ago along the Hudson River.

Until tomorrow, visitors will be able to come as close to the mansion as the gated, dirt road entrance to the property (the venue is about a half mile past its gate). On Saturday, the road leading to Astor Courts, as well as the air space above it will be blocked. State police will also be patrolling the parts of the Hudson with "high traffic." All in an effort presumably to ensure both security and privacy for Clinton's nuptials.

Sawhorses are currently stacked on River Road, the road leading to the estate, and there has been construction on the road this week.

Washington (CNN) - Chelsea Clinton and Marc Mezvinsky will exchange vows under a sky free of low-flying air traffic, courtesy of the Federal Aviation Administration.

At the request of the U.S. Secret Service, the FAA is restricting air traffic Saturday evening within 1.5 miles of Rhinebeck, New York, the expected site of the much-anticipated wedding. Air traffic over 2,000 feet - including all commercial flights - will not be interrupted.

The Secret Service requested the flight restrictions for security reasons only, the FAA said. In this instance, the notice says it is for "VIP movements."
