Clintons in Oxford for Chelsea's graduation

(CNN) - Chelsea Clinton graduated this weekend from Oxford University – her second commencement from the prestigious university - and her parents were in the audience.

A representative for Chelsea Clinton confirmed to CNN that former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodman Clinton are in England for the ceremonies Saturday.

Clinton received her doctorate in International Relations from the university where her father was a Rhodes Scholar. The Clinton Foundation said she also holds an undergraduate degree from Stanford, a Master’s from Columbia and an earlier Master’s from Oxford.

She announced last month she and her husband, Marc Mezvinsky, are expecting their first child in the fall.

The former President tweeted his congratulations and a picture of Chelsea donning her cap and gown:

    Um, Well,
    There is something to say for education. Me thinks Chelsea didn't go there for the education but the "Prestige". Good luck.

    There is a real difference between master's and doctor's degrees from Oxford and other British universities vs. American universities. Someone needs to check it out. Did Ms. Clinton really study and work for all four degrees?

    This is going to be really tacky – but I can't help it. Couldn't help thinking of the difference between her and Bristol Palin. World of difference. Sorry! Anything to do with the difference in their mothers?

    Hope she appreciates the education we paid for. The sooner she has that baby and gets out of the public eye the better for this country.

    oohhh hell the repubs going to be red mad as hell now. their wondering if she is the next generation of smart pragmatic open minded leader that will take our country into the 21st century. i wonder when the repubs will start being rational and stop allowing their repubs leaders, the rich and powerful to use them as props, because all the have to do is gin up none scandals, divide and conquer tactics, which gets their followers mad as hell, then the leadership can use them like a mop. its time the repubs start thinking independently and knowing that everyone is not a wellfare queen, and scrounging off them, as what the repubs have been beating into their heads. then they might think twice of allowing the repubs to shove money to a small rich group who are not investing the money back into our country. look at our third world country infrastructure. this is why the rich is not investing back here, they are investing like hell in china and building china more powerful than us everyday.

    Prestige universities don't accept candidates without promise nor do they Doctorates away you earn them and by the way they have to be and contain original thought that you can get past a committee of 3 independent professors who challenge your thesis they demand all your citations and reading works you reviewed and ask for key items of original thought included... then this "prestige" University goes searching for any plagiarism with its staffs using masters students to find any. This ia a horrendous process and hair raising for those hoping to get a doctorate its a cut throat period.
    PS Oxford has never had to retract a Doctorate for plagiarism.

    It would be nice to see a combination of the schools of Clinton and JFK and LBJ together with the deep wisdom and understanding of Lincoln or FDR and MLK.
