Leave Hillary and her grandchild alone!

April 21, 2014 PBS host says,

Punditry flashed its ugly underbelly this week following last week's announcement that Chelsea Clinton is pregnant. The response to the news ranged from the ridiculous to the sublime.

Secretary Hillary Clinton was joined by her daughter, Chelsea and actress America Ferrera, as well as by live remotes from across the country with girls schools and Girls Clubs. http://bit.ly/1pdoYv0  It's part of a series of meetings and webcasts called No Ceilings: The Full Participation Project. Hillary Clinton was in fine form, giving wise and motherly advice to the up-and-comers. She said nothing controversial. Her biggest push seemed to be to try to get girls to give up young women's need for perfection. She told them, give it your best, and it may not be perfect, but "good" will do just fine. It reminded me of the saying, "don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good."
