Chelsea Clinton to Speak to Triangle Students

— The youngest campaigner in the Clinton family will return to the Triangle Monday, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's camp announced.

Her daughter, Chelsea, will speak to college students as part of the campaign's "Our Voices, Our Future" tour, launched in January to reach out to young voters.

Chelsea Clinton will talk to students at North Carolina State University's bookstore plaza at 10:30 a.m. and Peace College's Belk Courtyard at 12:45 p.m. She will appear in the Pit at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill at 3 p.m.

On Saturday, Chelsea Clinton spoke at the annual statewide convention of the Young Democrats held in Research Triangle Park.

She said that reactions to her mother's campaign have shown her that sexism still exists in America and that her mother and father disagree over the North American Free Trade Agreement.

Hillary Clinton spoke at Wake Technical Community College and Fayetteville's Terry Sanford High School Thursday, while her husband, former president Bill Clinton, visited seven cities Friday.

The Clinton campaign is making an effort to reach out to North Carolina's voters, particularly young ones, before the state's May 6 primary. 

Her rival for the Democratic presidential nomination, Sen. Barack Obama, traveled to North Carolina earlier in March, visiting three cities in two weeks.

The state has 115 delegates and 19 unpledged superdelegates up for grabs.

    Who cares? And, if she is going to shill for her mon she needs to expect the hard questions about Monica.

    Good job Jimbo. I normally consider it a waste of time because Liberals don't usually deal in facts.

    Wildverb & Hockey- Please check out the following:


    I forgot, is the Clinton campaign part of right wing talk radio?

    How about this article:


    Of course, we are all aware that Katie Couric is part of the vast right wing conspiracy.

    Again, are you trying to say there weren't gas lines under Carter? Maybe it was just a fantasy of mine.

  • Politically Honest NOT PC Mar 31, 2008

    I wish they would pass a law prohibiting politicians from campaigning until 60 days prior to the election and limit it to the politician only,not their spouse,children,or any other relative.

    "That was just a bunch of Liberal gibberish and very laughable."

    In other words, I can't argue with or disprove it, so I will just discount it by calling it laughable.

    Nice job.

    Jimbo, that post was hardly worth responding to. That was just a bunch of Liberal gibberish and very laughable.

    "I listen to talk radio and I have never heard anybody say Osama is Muslum. As for the rest, one word WOW. You have to be one of the indoctrinated ones. WOW."

    You may have missed the remarks that Obama is a Muslim, but it is a widely circulated right wing lie.

    So you're saying you believe the following...

    Obama is not patriotic. (Only a mind reader could know),
    The Clinton's had people killed (Did you hear that through your tin foil hat?)
    Global warming is nothing but a myth put forth by liberals to end capitalism (Please offer some proof?)
    Gas lines occurred under Jimmy Carter (The worst and longest gas lines occurred during the 1973 oil embargo - Nixon was President - look it up)
    The US has all the oil it needs. (US Geological estimates say we have around 24 billion barrels of recoverable oil - about a 5 year supply)
    Decreasing taxes always increases revenue (Look up the Laffer curve),
    Al Qaeda realy was in Iraq (despite what the CIA tells us)

    "As for the rest, one word WOW. You have to be one of the indoctrinated ones. WOW."

    In other words, you are right, Wild. Now just can't defend it.

    Wildverb- Do you actually listen to conservative talk radio?

    A couple of points- Most people don't dispute climate change, however, what many people dispute, not just conservatives, is that it's man made. Why didn't Clinton sign the Kyoto Accord?
    Please see:



    Gas lines under Carter. Are you trying to say they didn't exist? In Maryland, we had odd and even day rationing. If you plate ended with an odd number, you could only by gas on odd number calander days. Get a clue.

    As for oil, it's not that we want to drill everywhere, just SOMEWHERE.
