Enoch Powell said that “All political careers end in failure”. I love that quote. My own observations suggest that many political careers end up with relatives. Politics in Ireland is hereditary. Parliament seats pass from father to son and uncle to niece. And it’s clearly not the only place. Just thinking about poor old Chelsea Clinton. Imagine the pressure, if both her parents are some day ex-presidents of the US. What possible career could she have that would match up to that? Look what it did to George Bush having only one parent as president. And did you know that the Polish president and Prime Minister are twins? No, truly. You can play a game here to try and tell them apart.
Finally, great news, our house is vomit free and we are all back in our respective places of detention.
Poor Chelsea … I suppose it is best if she stays out of politics altogether.
Your blog is a good read … glad everyone is back in good health!
I really don’t think Chelsea has much to worry about. I firmly believe that her mother will never win the presidency. I DO secretly hope that young Chelsea scores a book deal someday. She has definitely lived a life.
Most of all, I’m glad that your home is free of the vomit!
i’m so glad everyone in the waffle house is mended. and i read your post too quickly and thot you meant the polish president and the BRITISH prime minister. i spent the whole game looking for tony blair, lol.
i’m with angela, i’d love to read Chelsea’s book. i bet she already has a deal to publish after both her parents go on to the happy political hunting ground.
