Politics is King: All eyes on Rhinebeck for Chelsea Clinton's wedding

Posted: 12:37 PM ET

While we're still waiting on the jury to decide the fate of former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich in his corruption trial, as well as what will come of the ethics charges against NY Representative Charlie Rangel, the political chatter this week has been about one thing...

The upcoming wedding of Chelsea Clinton.

So many questions are out there: Who will design her dress (Vera Wang?), where will it be (Rhinebeck, NY?), who will be there (Oprah?), and will she change her last name (Chelsea Mezvinsky)?

We'll know much more after Saturday's ceremony, and in the meantime, check out some of these other stories you might have missed this week:

*Erin Andrews, of ESPN and DWTS fame, was on Capitol Hill this week pushing for tougher laws against stalking. You probably knew this from watching LKL on Tuesday night.

*President Obama knows every detail about the U.S. nuclear arsenal, and whether or not Area 51 does indeed house aliens… but during his visit on “The View,” he admitted he doesn’t know who “Snooki” is... (NYDaily News)

*Will former Florida Governor Jeb Bush follow his brother's and dad's footsteps and run for President in 2012? He answered it HERE (The Hill)

*What does comedian/actor Bill Murray watch on television?  While it should be CNN, his answer may surprise you. (Mediabistro)

A 150 guests have been invited to Chelsea Clinton's wedding...estimated cost of catering $750,000...that is $5,000 per person without the cake. The cake is $20,000. Got milk?

True beauty and Love radiates far upon and beyond the clinching of deep pocket books.. Like the shame of reality clinches on the most elaborate fantasies. Question: If such a great wedding why..

There seems to be a large scale falsehood that is widely told and widely accepted as fact. That being the President of the United States is told all of the top secret programs and projects in area 51 along with those of the Shadow Government across America.

NO THEY ARE NOT!

Fact, President Jimmy Carter during his campaign speeches and early on in his American Presidency told the public he would learn if America and other nations had in fact made repeated contact with human beings from other clusters of humanity scattered across the Universe not from earth and inform the American public of the findings.

The utterly depraved and corrupt Director of the CIA who was very active at that time in kidnapping, terrorizing and torturing residents of Latin and South America at that time REFUSED to grant President Carter's request for clearance to learn about that.

And who was that rat in the woodpile that refused President Carter's request? George Herbert Walker Bush, yep none other than Bush sr.

Neoliberal Globalization along with an over inflated military and two wars is what continues to bankrupt this country. Sounds like how past civilizations met their maker! Unfortunately for Americans, history was not an important subject in school. We will pay the piper on this one.


Smith in Oregon   July 30th, 2010 6:55 pm ET

The Bush Family values were revealed to the entire world to be so utterly toxic, depraved and corrupt, the numbers of Republican's that fled the Bush led Republican party like fleas on a dog with a flea collar was staggering.

The Bush Family values toxic legacy remains so vile that Geb Bush wouldn't stand a chance in gaining enough support with America's voters to place another 'Bush' into the White House.

I nominate Bush-Palin for the Republican nominees in 2012!

They are much more colorful than Mike Huckebee who looks like a man that seriously needs a colonic!


Veritas vos liberabit   July 30th, 2010 7:09 pm ET

Ann Coulter …..Sarah Palin …… Laura Ingraham

should all be shipped off to a bereft island where no one has to hear them. They are an embarrassment and disgrace to the female gender. With women like these three screeching, no wonder men often have a poor view of the female sex.

As I had repeatedly posted concerned comments about, Iran sinking a fully loaded Oil Supertanker in the shallow and narrow Strait of Hormuz effectively shutting down the Gulf for nations around the world depending on Saudi Oil for their daily energy needs.

Out of sight, out of Media Coverage, it appears Iran fired a test hyper-speed torpedo at a Japanese Oil Supertanker that was fully loaded and passing thru the narrow and shallow Strait of Hormuz sending a clear message to the World but ignored at peril by Western News Media.

The fully loaded Japanese Oil Supertanker was leaving the Gulf meaning that impact area was facing the nearby shoreline of Iran in the narrow and shallow Strait of Hormuz.

The size of the impact, burn marks and placement on the Oil Tankers stern looks like Iran fired one of their Russian hyper-speed practice torpedo's at the Japanese Oil Supertanker. Iran used a known North Korean enemy as a real life target to send North Korea and the World a message they were certain would be heard. A message to North Korea stating Iran is ready if North Korea goes hot, a message to the World stating Iran is fully capable of closing the Strait of Hormuz.

Iran is sending a clear signal to the World that it will sink a fully loaded Oil Supertanker in the shallow Strait of Hormuz effectively plugging the entry way to the Saudi Oil ports which much of the world entirely depends on for it's daily crude Oil needs. Iran is reminding America and the World that would occur if America attacks Iran with multiple nuclear weapons on its many deep mountain military complexes. Iran is reminding America and the World that would occur if America attacks North Korea.

Many nations would be cursing America if they were cut-off from receiving Saudi Oil for a week or longer. Those hyper-speed Russian torpedo's and Chinese silkworm anti-ship missiles that Iran has would be no contest against a slow moving fully loaded Oil Supertanker in the shallow waters thru the Strait of Hormuz.

You ever wonder how people figure out the likes of you are right wing and racist?


Dodie   July 30th, 2010 7:54 pm ET

While I am happy for Anthony Robbins’ perceived achievements the title presented on the internet “World Authority on Leadership Psychology” is conceptualization of narcissism at the least! Where are his credentials? Where is his Ph.D. degree?

While Robbins may have had some training in Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), it should also be noted that this is not an accredited form of psychotherapy due to insufficient empirical evidence to substantiate its claimed effectiveness. The best use of NLP is most likely in the area of learning disorders due to its breaking down of interpersonal communication from thought patterns. Other than that, NLP has little to no significance in the world of psychology. Anyone traveling around the world for 30 years would gain some interpersonal communication experience. I am just not very impressed with this individual. Many people have spent 11 years obtaining a Ph.D. in psychology at great expense, time and effort. Education does help with one’s thought process even though it is not all conclusive for knowledge. Everything should be seen in balance. Life experience, education and so on.


Chere   July 30th, 2010 9:00 pm ET

@Dodie,
Apparently many feel they have benefitted from the work of Tony Robbins. I wonder how many of these so-called educated folks you reference could get up in front of a group and do anything more than put it to sleep.
Where's Bill Gates' credentials; he didn't finish college. Where's Michael Dell's credentials; he didn't finish college. There are many people who have degrees in technology who obviously will never be successful as these two are. I hope those who have obtained their Ph.D.'s in psychology are happy with their accomplishments and also hope they are well adjusted for the benefit of those they purportedly help although many see them as people who couldn't make it through med school and psychiatry. I really don't see the role of a motivational speaker and other work Tony does being the same as what one usually expect from a Ph.D.

I am excited about Chelsea Clintons wedding, and she will make a beautiful bride..... I am a big fan of the Clintons and Chelsea has grown up into a poised, smart elegant young woman. She is a credit to her Mom and Dad......

OMG!

I think spending $15,000.00 on portable toilets for Clinton's wedding is a huge humanitarian waste. Think how far that money could have gone if it had been used for shelters for the homeless or food for the hungry.
And the Clintons bill themselves as charitable?


Chris   August 1st, 2010 11:18 am ET

@Janice,
What would you suggest guests do; go to the bathroom behind a tree?
Yes, the Clintons are very charitable. BTW, love the double meaning of your choice of words "humanitarian waste."


John West   August 2nd, 2010 2:15 pm ET

Say, Larry, was the bridegroom in the Clinton wedding photographed in such a way as to give the impression he wasn't wearing the yarmulke? I distinctly got the impression that this was the purpose. The reason now is why?


Gerald Jolly   August 2nd, 2010 11:03 pm ET

Congratulations to Chelsey.

But please do not refer to her wedding as being a "ROYAL EVENT"

The U.S. won the war of independence and rejected ROYALTY two centuries ago.

And unless I'm out of touch with the times, Chelsey is not a QUEEN or a PRINCESS and her MOM and DAD are not of ROYAL blood.

Sorry about that, but Americans made that decision a long time ago.

Insults are not required or asked for.

WASHINGTON: Failure of Indo-Pak talks in Islamabad and the WikiLeaks release of the classified US documents on Afghanistan war indicates that Pakistan's Army does not want peace with India, a noted US scholar has said.
"The military establishment simply does not want peace with India," Sumit Ganguly, from the Indian University in Bloomington, wrote in his column in the 'Foreign Policy' magazine.
"Meaningful progress on contentious bilateral issues would inevitably call into question its extraordinary privileges and its lavish existence. Likewise, it has little or no interest in full-fledged counterterrorism cooperation with the US.
"A swift and decisive end to the swarm of jihadis operating within Pakistan and along the Afghanistan-Pakistan border would mean an end to the seemingly unending flow of American largesse," Ganguly said.
Asking Washington to "wake up", the scholar said Pakistan's military was running the show in Islamabad and the WikiLeaks revelations have only confirmed that supporting jihadi terrorist groups aren't the actions of a few, rogue generals – it's government strategy.
Time has now arrived for the Obama administration to undertake a policy review that explores alternative logistics supply routes into Afghanistan and one that will lower the boom on Pakistan – unless it shows tangible and immediate progress on the counterterrorism cooperation front, the American scholar of Indian origin said.
"A policy that falls short on these two counts is an invitation for the continued loss of blood and treasure to no viable end," he said.
Ganguly said the American and the Pakistani political establishments are now scrambling to contain the diplomatic damage from last week's revelations – stressing that the evidence is dated and that US policy and Pakistani behaviour have changed significantly since the Obama administration entered office.
"Don't bet on it. In its quest to establish a firm political foothold in Afghanistan after the US army drawdown in July 2011, Pakistan's security establishment will soon insist that Hamid Karzai's government in Kabul make peace with two of its most reliable proxies, the forces loyal to Afghan warlord Gulbuddin Hekmatyar and the Taliban network of Sirajuddin Haqqani," he said.
