Love, etc.: Chelsea Clinton, Marc Mezvinsky engaged

This time, it's for real: Chelsea Clinton and longtime boyfriend Marc Mezvinsky are engaged.

In an e-mail to friends Friday, Clinton, 29, and Mezvinsky, 31, announced the engagement: "We're sorry for the mass email but we wanted to wish everyone a belated Happy Thanksgiving! We also wanted to share that we are engaged! We didn't get married this past summer despite the stories to the contrary, but we are looking toward next summer and hope you all will be there to celebrate with us." The engagement was first reported by ABC News.

A spokesman for Chelsea's dad, former president Bill Clinton, confirmed the news.

Mezvinsky is no stranger to political family life. His mom is former Pennsylvania representativeMarjorie Margolies-Mezvinsky, and his dad is former Iowa representativeEd Mezvinsky. Both parents are longtime friends of the Clintons. Ed Mezvinsky was released from federal prison last year after pleading guilty in 2002 to charges of bank and wire fraud.

The couple became friends as teenagers in Washington, and both attended Stanford University. They now live in New York, where Mezvinsky is an investment banker at Goldman Sachs and Clinton is attending graduate school at Columbia University's School of Public Health.

Chelsea watchers -- us included -- spent much of the summer parsing rumors about a possible Clinton-Mezvinsky wedding in Martha's Vineyard ... which never happened. To think they would have had us in the loop all along.

Well, she's a beacon of hope for all ugly girls who could get a good-looking guys, too - but, only if they are the daughters of U.S. presidents or former presidents.

How many times did your parents drop you on your head? Chelsea is not only a graceful and beautiful woman, she is one her parents are rightfully proud of.

Rox & Anne - Don't you remember that Marjorie Margolies was also a NBC news reporter in Washington.

I remember Hillary blasting people going into investment banking as an occupation when she was on the campaign trail in 2008. I guess she meant for only people outside of her family.

Sounds like she's marrying into a criminal family like the one she's from...

People should refrain from rude comments about Chelsea Clinton. It isn't her fault.

They are a beautiful young couple. We should all wish them well and a happy life together.

You Hater's , call her ugly, and talk about her family, Is your family all that, are you all that? What other people do in their lives is on them, you Hater's are judging her , Judge yourselk's and your own family before you even thinbk about judging someone else, The Hater's how many of your own family and friend's hate you?
Ask them how they really feel about you, tell them to be REAL, HONEST , see how they really feel, I don't even know you and I can tell you are not worth to even be around.

All the Haters who made fun of Sarah Palin's and George Bush's children should be ashamed of themselves. And, not make fun of Chelsea Clinton. I remember when she was at Stanford many people called her, "ugly." Not fun for anyone to endure. Congratulations to Chelsea!

Somewhere, a psychologist is mulling over the significance of a Clinton marrying someone whose last name ends in "insky."

I wonder if she's planning to convert.

This is good news after all that she has been through. She was viciously skewered as a child by viagra-packing chickenhawk Rush LIMPbaugh, then had to watch a witch-hunt against her father by serial cheaters and VIP members of brothels in Congress and clergy. Now it's her time!

I had hoped that Chelsea Clinton would outgrow her unfortunate looks, but it's obvious you don't have to be good looking to get married. I also hope we are not treated to future reports on Chelsea Clinton.
