Chelsea lacks class at exclusive event

"We are just trying to make my mom's campaign more accessible to people,"
said Chelsea Clinton, Stanford '01, on Sunday night to a
crowd in the Pi Phi lounge. The Stanford alumna and daughter of
candidate Hillary Clinton, Ms. Clinton arrived at Stanford yesterday for a
one-day swing through campus in order to talk to young women, a key target
demographic of the Clinton campaign. But the limited invitation policy of
the event at Pi Phi, which was only open to members of the
Inter-Sorority-Council, left a bad taste in the mouths of the many Clinton
fans and political junkies across campus, many of whom would have stayed
home from Lake Tahoe ski trips for a chance to attend.
In an effort to sway undecided voters for California's upcoming Feb. 5
presidential primary, Chelsea hosted a small round-table discussion at Old
Union and later a larger event open only to sorority members in the Pi Phi
lounge. According to a member of the Stanford Students for Hillary, who
quoted in the Stanford Daily on Monday [Chelsea Campaigns at Farm], the
former first daughter wanted to reach out to the sorority audience in
to tap into a "core demographic" of Hillary Clinton's campaign.
By many accounts it was a success. Chelsea reached out to undecided female
voters, supporting and explaining her mother's views on substantive issues
such as the war in Iraq and the nuances between universal insurance plans
the major Democratic presidential candidates. The strategy seems almost
ingenious: target an all-female slice of the Stanford population that may
less politically engaged but more socially connected, and present them
an impressive young woman who lived in the Cowell cluster herself ten
But the exclusive setting of the question-and-answer session, however, may
have turned off more people than it turned on. Clinton was not a member of
sorority while at Stanford, so her appearance was not a homecoming for a
former sorority sister. The campaign and the University kept the event a
secret and only members of the ISC even knew Clinton was scheduled to
Perhaps this was the design and intention of the campaign stop all along,
however. A school-wide, open event, held impersonally in Memorial
or Kresge, would have been packed with political partisans and prevented
presidential daughter from forging any connections with voters or
changing people's minds.
What transpired on Sunday night, however, created the impression that
Hillary Clinton's campaign, which has been accused of belonging to a
establishment network and resisting grassroots political change, was
something less than accessible. Chelsea's mum appearance sponsored by the
sorority system, a naturally exclusive institution that accepts and
candidates based on notoriously subjective qualifications, only
the major criticisms of the Clinton campaign.
