Prezzy Perks

Imagine a U.S. president putting off a state visit at a delicate time in order to help prep his daughter for mid-terms. For one man, that is enough to help him put aside longtime enmity against former POTUS Clinton and, at least, concede he was a good dad.

Based on the new Taylor Branch reminisce, "The Clinton Tapes," it seems Clinton was disciplined in only one area: giving daughter Chelsea the devoted father Clinton himself never had. He showed up on time at ballet recitals and pretty much kept her out of the limelight and away from politics ... a very different tact from the one of French President Sarkozy, who seems well on his way to setting son Jean [Earlier: L of H] up for life as a political piƱata.
