It looks as though Fox News analyst and 28-year CBS News veteran Bernard Goldberg has had a peek inside the May issue of ELLE magazine, which features an exclusive interview with Chelsea Clinton, herself a nearly three-year veteran of NBC News. Clinton has since left the news business and turned her focus to her work with the Clinton Foundation and to her mother’s campaign for president.
Hillary Clinton’s daughter says her mother should be crowned president of the United States because “it’s important for symbolic reasons.”

She’s not simply rooting for her mother, though; Chelsea told ELLE that the election of a woman as president is important for symbolic reasons:
… when you ask about the importance of having a woman president, absolutely it’s important, for, yes, symbolic reasons — symbols are important; it is important who and what we choose to elevate, and to celebrate. And one of our core values in this country is that we are the land of equal opportunity, but when equal hasn’t yet included gender, there is a fundamental challenge there that, I believe, having our first woman president — whenever that is— will help resolve.
@BernardGoldberg Bernie, the same ppl who voted 4 0bama because '1st black Pres' will vote 4 Hillary because '1st female President'

@BernardGoldberg "Symbolic Reasons", have taken this country in the wrong direction for 6 1/2 years. It is time for REAL "hope and change! "

@BernardGoldberg And that is exactly what will happen. Enjoy the ride, sir, because the next year is all a dog and pony show.

@BernardGoldberg Would she say this if Carly Fiorina was the GOP was the nominee and a man was the Dem nominee?

We’d doubt it.
@BernardGoldberg Symbolic, just like the Royal Family. No thanks!

@BernardGoldberg symbolism doesn't work any better than socialism.
