Quote of the Day

"Wow, you're the first person actually that's ever asked me that question in the, I don't know, maybe 70 college campuses that I've now been to, and I do not think that's any of your business."—Chelsea Clinton, after being asked whether her mother's credibility had been hurt during the Monica Lewinsky scandal. Her response was met with applause.

Meanwhile, the WaPo's Ed O'Keefe (among others) asks: "Is it fair to ask Chelsea Clinton about Lewinsky?" which, of course, totally misses the point—that questions about a woman with whom her husband had an affair a decade ago aren't relevant to Hillary Clinton's candidacy, no matter to whom they're directed.
