Just an observation of Chelsea Clinton. Last night after the debate I noticed everyone coming onto

the stage. The Trump kids in a group, including Ivanka who appeared to have her head down. They were introduced by their husbands and became friends. Anyway, Chelsea with smile on her face, reached out to Ivanka and sort of hugged and exchanged some pleasantries (if that's what it's called). Chelsea is a peace-maker and for a child of privilege, one of the sweetest and most sincere humans I know of late. Her parents should and are quite proud of her and I would love to have someone just like her to call "friend."

on whom the amazing experience of growing up in the White House was not wasted. Too many regard it as a trauma. I've always admired her for that, and her parents for obviously doing a lot right.

Across the isle so has Chelsea, good for her. She probably knows the pain Ivanka has, her father has totally embarrassed the family.

When the Clintons came to Washington, Chelsea attended Sidwell Friends, a Quaker school. She went to Stanford for college. Ivanka went to U Penn. Her parents became friend with Trump when they moved to New York (big mistake). I would imagine that is when the two girls met.
