You know Chelsea Clinton is super hot, and something more too

Yo, seriously, how is there any debate? Chelsea Clinton is hot.

Check out this video by The Temple News on a recent appearance Hillary’s daughter made in Philadelphia, and try to tell me differently.

Attractiveness can help get a message out — look at most any celebrity (male or female), and their physical gifts are no doubt part of why we listen. So that isn’t meant to diminish Chelsea, just acknowledge it further strengthens her future.

That’s a far cry from her early days as the first child in White House.

So it’s no surprise Chelsea has been used a great deal by the Clinton campaign.

Yet, there has been lots of talk about Chelsea being used for the Hillary campaign. The junior Senator from New York addressed attacks of her “pimping out” Chelsea, though the phrase is an ugly one.

Multimedia coverage of Hillary Clinton at Temple

Last week, I posted about The Temple News covering Hillary Clinton holding a rally in McGonigle Hall at Temple, in front of a crowd of several thousand.

LeAnne Matlach, the assistant News Editor, reported there; Chris Stover, the Chief Copy Editor, filed an audio story, and Sean Blanda, our Online Editor, edited down video highlights of her 40-minute speech. In a pinch and without a photographer, I took photos, rounding out a complete multimedia package, though my photography is less than up to the normal standards of The Temple News.

Check out a slide show of those photos here on Flickr.

Keith Olberman weighs in on Ferraro controversy

MSNBC’s Keith Olberman took on the controversial comments made by Sen. Hillary Clinton adviser Geraldine Ferraro, who was the first female major party candidate for vice president in 1984 with Walter Mondale. The comments, which Olberman quoted from a Feb. 26 Fox radio broadcast were as follows:

If Barack Obama were a white man, would we be talking about this, as a potential real problem for Hillary? If he were a woman of any color, would he be in this position that he’s in? Absolutely not.”

Here the talking head and former ESPN commentator on the subject in his “Special Comment” address.

Hillary at Temple, Barack coming next

Sen. Hillary Clinton was at Temple University today, and I was on hand, taking photographs for The Temple News, though I won’t have them posted until tomorrow morning. I will additionally post some video clips of the speech.

Next week, Barack Obama is coming to Temple.

As Philadelphia and Pennsylvania’s importance increases with its primary coming April 22, we will see plenty of the two candidates in the Quaker City.

Philly super delegate endorses Obama

bill-clinton-carol-ann-campbell.jpgCarol Ann Campbell, one of Philadelphia’s super delegates and a city Democratic committee cog, has endorsed Barack Obama after a conversation with the candidate’s wife, the Associated Press is reporting.

Previously, the former City Councilwoman had said she wouldn’t endorse either candidate before it came time to cast her vote (assuming it will be necessary) in order that she not burn bridges. Her mind was changed by a 90 minute conversation with Michelle Obama, Barack’s wife who is just about charming everyone in sight.

Indeed, it was generally considered that Campbell was a Clinton supporter before the conversation, according to the LA Times. As previously posted, the tide is surely turning on the Democratic side of things.

Understand the Democratic vote through dance

Are you having difficulty understanding why Barack Obama is soaring and Hillary Clinton is drowning in Democratic Party primaries and caucuses all of sudden? Do you love to watch politicians dance or talk about the importance of dance education? Well, boy, do I have a post for you.

See, I have summed up the recent dynamic in the Democratic Party through something we all understand… dancing.

Online searches for Barack and Hillary dancing come up with two distinctly different interpretations ensue. Seriously, watch, you’ll get it.
