Hillary Blames Media
Oh, of course, it was the media's fault.
Senator Hillary Clinton said during last night's Democratic debate that she sent daughter Chelsea to Sidwell Friends School instead of a D.C. public school because of reporters. "I was advised -- and it was, unfortunately, good advice -- that if she were to go to a public school, the press would never leave her alone," she said.
Funny thing. That's not what the White House said in January 1993 when it announced the decision. "They chose Sidwell Friends because it's a good school," spokesman George Stephanopoulos said at the time. "It's an academically challenging school." And, he noted, "one of the things that was particularly attractive to the family was that Sidwell has a service component that goes along with their academic requirements."
Nothing about the mean, nasty reporters. Who by the way over eight years pretty much left Chelsea alone, regardless of school.
