The Stanford Daily, student newspaper at Stanford University, was not impressed with the secret, “exclusive” event featuring Chelsea Clinton. In fact, they got kind of nasty in their criticism.
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 rejects candidates based on notoriously subjective qualifications, only perpetuates the major criticisms of the Clinton campaign.
The kicker is in the last two lines:
An open event, however, where perhaps a lottery system could have limited attendance but allowed access, could have drummed up more interest and positive energy for the Hillary campaign. Instead, on Sunday Chelsea sought “accessibility” for her mother’s campaign at a private event that, ten years ago, then-student Chelsea Clinton would not have been invited to attend.
The Clinton campaign is the most secretive campaign in history.
