There are some redundant questions that arise in the vicinity of the Clintons. Chelsea appears to have put one of them on a back burner by telling Glamour Magazine that she and hubby Marc will try to make 2014 “the year of the baby.”
“We sat down and said, ‘Here’s what we want to do.’ The first thing on the list was simple: We want, God willing, to start a family. So we decided we were going to make 2014 the Year of the Baby. And please,” Chelsea pleads, “call my mother and tell her that. She asks us about it every single day.”
Apparently, Hillary got the message, and thought the strategy was pretty effective for capping off the torrent of questions about 2016 that surround her like a whirlpool wherever she goes. So today, when she appeared before the Long Island Association, she tried her hand at Chelsea’s technique for dealing with inquiring minds.
Hillary Clinton will start to “seriously” think about a presidential bid next year, she said at a Friday lunch, a new report says.
“I want to think seriously about it; I probably won’t begin thinking about it until sometime next year,” Clinton said of a presidential bid, according to a report in Newsday. “I will think about it because it’s something on a lot of people’s minds. And it’s on my mind as well. But I want us to think more broadly.”
This method might not stifle daily questions to Chelsea, but should go a long way toward silencing the incessant questions to Hillary as she motors around giving speeches and receiving awards. As for those who have tried so hard to convince some of us that she is definitely running, maybe we can enjoy a respite from that, too, since, right now, she has assured us, she is not even thinking about it.
