The role Chelsea Clinton needed to play on the last night of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia was decided — oddly enough — in Cleveland.

When Ivanka Trump wowed the Republican National Convention with a speech that made her father, Donald Trump, sound like a normal guy who just happened to own casinos and skyscrapers, and not the over-the-top cartoon character that the country has watched with a mixture of fascination and horror over the last year, Chelsea Clinton’s task was clear. She had to offer voters a glimpse of her mother that went beyond the public facade that people have known, and cheered — or jeered — during the last quarter century, when Hillary Clinton was a First Lady, Senator, and Secretary of State.

Last night, Hillary Clinton spoke at the National Constitution Center at a rally for Pennsylvania gubernatorial hopeful Tom Wolf. And we learned one very important fact about the Clintons: The newest Clinton is a fan of the Eagles.

Chelsea’s husband is Marc Mezvinsky, the son of Edward Mezvinsky and Marjorie Margolies. He’s From Here! One can only hope when Charlotte Clinton Mezvinsky is inevitably President of the United States, she remembers to rule in a way that would best benefit the Philadelphia Eagles.
