Chelsea Clinton Makes Asinine Statement


The office of President should always be occupied by the person best suited to serve the nation's interests as chief executive and commander in chief.  There is no valid case, at any time, for criteria other than substantive qualities and capabilities.  Superficial characteristics, such as race, gender, or ethnic heritage are not rational basis for determining fitness for office.  Nor is there a valid case that a set of prevailing circumstances or exigencies - a "right time" - require the abandonment of substantive criteria in favor of superficial criteria. 

The young Clinton is simply appealing to tribal instincts to secure political success and, ultimately, power for her caste.

As I said, asinine.
