Daughter’s time off pleases president

SHARE Daughter’s time off pleases president

President Clinton on Friday cheered daughter Chelsea's decision to take a quarter off from college to help her mother's Senate campaign and be with him during his last days in the White House.

"She's already got way more credits than she needs to graduate. She wants to be with her mother and me for these last few months of our time together," Clinton said. He noted that his daughter spent "about a third of her life" in the White House and would like to have more time there as well.

Clinton spoke during a re-election event in Barrington, R.I., for Rep. Patrick Kennedy, D-R.I.
