Charlotte was born Friday, Sept. 26, 2014.

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. Can the president request replay reviews? I think the president should get to request unlimited replay reviews.

PHOTO: Hillary Clinton’s Down With the Roots

Philly Roots drummer Questlove posted this photo of him and former Secretary of State (and future President?) Hillary Clinton on his Instagram feed. The caption reads, “Most would say ‘ … so this happened’ … I’m like ‘yeah it’s Sunday night.'” 

The pair were attending an event during the weekend long Clinton Global Initiative 2014 Annual Meeting in New York City.

Christie Under Attack for Helicopter Use

Gov. Chris Christie is taking fire for his use of the state helicopter, with the brunt of criticism coming from a group promoting Hillary Clinton’s presidential prospects. NJ.com reports that the group, American Bridge, criticized Christie for flying instead of taking a relatively short (and cheaper) 40 minute drive from Haddon Heights to Trenton following a town meeting: Read more »

PHOTOS: Hillary Clinton at the Free Library

Hillary Clinton drew a large crowd to the Free Library of Philadelphia today for the signing of her new book, Hard Choices. The people I talked to after they got their book signed were broadly smiling, one lady telling me it was, “a once-in-a-lifetime experience to meet the next president of the United States.



A few notables stopped by to say hi, including Mayor Michael Nutter, who Hillary stopped the signing to get up, greet and hug, Council President Darrell Clarke, Senator Vincent Hughes, and Marjorie Margolies, the mother of Hillary’s son-in-law.

First in line was Dylan Hewitt who arrived at 5:30 a.m. He told me he was proud that Madame Secretary Hillary Clinton was a fellow New Yorker, and she was his inspiration to follow in her political footsteps. He attends University of Pennsylvania the Fels Institute of Government, where he studies political science. Margolies is one of his professors. Check out some photos of the afternoon below. 

Hillary Clinton Accuses Terry Gross of Being “Persistent”

TerryGrossHillary Clinton is on a book tour (PHOTOS: she’s was at the free library Friday morning), and this week, she sat down with Philadelphia’s Terry Gross for an interview that aired on NPR’s Fresh Air.

The interview has generated a lot of controversy thanks to a rather awkward section where Gross questions Clinton on the hot topic of gay marriage.

Ed Rendell to Democrats: It’s Best If You Don’t Run Against Hillary Clinton

Politico on Wednesday assessed the presidential ambition of former Maryland governor Martin O’Malley. The site’s Anna Palmer writes that the 2016 presidential field is “frozen” until Hillary Clinton decides if she’ll jump into the race. It appears very likely she will, of course, and got a very interesting quote from Clinton family loyalist and professional Philadelphia Eagles analyst Ed Rendell:

Former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell said that other possible Democratic presidential candidates, like Sens. Mark Warner of Virginia and Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota are biding their time to see what Clinton will do. Vice President Joe Biden, who is widely considered to be the front-runner if Clinton chooses not to run, has met with some fundraisers and has made several visits to key states like South Carolina.

A great big mazel tov to Chelsea Clinton and Marc Mezvinsky, who announced late last week the impending birth this autumn of an heir to the Clinton dynasty. You may remember their wedding back in the summer of 2010. It was the American equivalent of one of Britain’s royal marriage hullabaloos, and cost, cognoscenti guessed, about three million bucks. But for all its heritage and privilege, Marc and Chelsea’s baby, when it’s born, will be part of a minority — the less than 50 percent of all babies born in this country today whose parents are wed.
