Coffee and US Politics

Starbucks looks for a fresh jolt.

I'm a self-confessed coffee lover and Starbucks loyalist, and I'm glad to see them finally going back to their original purpose: good coffee.  I can't wait to use my Starbucks card (free drip refills!).  Hehe.

Chelsea Clinton refuses to answer questions about her dad's indiscretion as POTUS.  

"It's none of your business," she says.  I beg to disagree.  The Monica Lewinsky scandal happened on "company time" and at the White House, not on some motel off the freeway.  It should always be a factor in deciding who to vote for.  People should be able to decide for themselves if the sexual misdeed matters to them or if they can vote for and live with a President whose husband is a philanderer.  What Chelsea Clinton is essentially telling us is that it shouldn't matter to the voters at all, because it's "family business."  Of course not.  She can choose to say "no comment," but don't tell the voters that it's "none of their business."  Because she's campaigning for her mother, who is running for the highest office of the land, she has to face and answer these uncomfortable questions.  She should stay home if she's not ready for them.
