Congrats to Chelsea Clinton and Husband Marc

Chelsea Clinton announced today she and husband Marc Mezvinsky are expecting a child.

Hillary and Bill are of course, excited. Hillary tweeted:

“My most exciting title yet: Grandmother-To-Be!”

The new addition to the family is due "sometime later this year."

    Big difference.

    But mythology is sort of a hobby.  Heck I have a 6' temple Garuda in my living room but I don't believe in him either.

    I am going to assume that she would play it safe and wait till she is past the 1st trimester before making an announcement. My bet is October.

    That baby will be spoken of most often on Fox News but whatever Jim.  Hell, Chelsea will be accused of deliberately getting pregnant to coincide with whatever election and open the door for her mom's Presidential run.  We lefties have simply learned to embrace the inevitable.

    Fox will want to be there to film the birth to make sure it doesn't have two heads. Rush Limbaugh will be screeching about how it was all "planned". Glenn Beck and Alex Jones will say that Chelsea really didn't give birth and it was a "secret adoption" that is denied to most Americans.

    whether being a grandmother will impact negatively on her possible candidacy.

    I remember that McCain got the "grampa" treatment relentlessly.

    Of course I wish her and Chelsea the best, but everything is political it seems.

    I hope this post isn't a downer on an otherwise cheerful and loving one.

    If so, I apologize.
