Hillary Clinton: Young People Ain’t So Bad

By Brian | May 15, 2006 | Share on Facebook

Hillary Clinton told the U.S. Chamber of Commerce last week that young people in America “think work is a four-letter word,” because they “have a sense of entitlement after growing up in a ‘culture that has a premium on instant gratification.’” (quotes from the AP article, which may have been paraphrasing).

Chelsea Clinton, now 26-years old and working as a consultant for McKinsey & Co., called (out) her mother by telling her, “Mom, I do work hard and my friends work hard.” After which, Hillary promptly corrected herself, saying “I was referring only to young people that can’t vote yet.”

No, just kidding. She issued the proper politician-apology: “I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to convey the impression that you don’t work hard [by saying you don't work hard]. I just want to set the bar high, because we are in a competition for the future.”

OK, I added the part in the brackets, but hey – this is so much fun…

Anyway, go Chelsea!

    Penn doesn’t seem to have posted the text of the speech yet, but there is a podcast of it for your listening pleasure.

    Up for some typing? ;-)
