When Chelsea announced her first pregnancy, back in the spring of 2014, critics immediately questioned how Hillary would handle being both a grandmother and a political figure.
Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was joined by her husband Bill Clinton at a New Hampshire watch party after the third Democratic debate, Saturday. “@HillaryClinton and I are thrilled for Chelsea, Marc and Charlotte’s growing family in 2016!”
Mr and Mrs Clinton didn’t wait too long to share this with the world and take pride in having a second grandchild.
The only child of Hillary and Bill Clinton gushed about Charlotte in an interview for the cover of the May issue of Elle magazine. “Feeling very blessed & grateful this holiday season”, Chelsea Clinton tweeted.
Mr Clinton also chimed in, tweeting: “Christmas comes early!“.
The image of a flawless family and a new life is a very powerful marketing tool and it could be an effective strategy to get the votes of the American citizen.
“Luckily, my daughter and her husband are obviously well educated, they work hard, they’ll provide everything Charlotte needs”, Clinton has said at campaign events.
“Er, she definitely gives me advice”, former First Daughter Clinton said in March.
Prior to being a mother, Chelsea Clinton was a special correspondent for NBC.
