    Chelsea got the job for all her hard work just as did Bristol Palin did for her tv jobs.

    Chelsea and Bristol are probably the two hardest working women in America.

    Threads like this expose the hackery of both sides.

    But at least in Chelsea's case, she presumably got the position because NBC is banking that people are interested in her view and seeing her. I doubt NBC hired her to get on Bill and Hilary's good side, or because they feel they owe those two any favors. She's a minor political celebrity in her own right. Compare that with all the boys and girls that get jobs on Wall Street based on daddy's connections. Similar, but not quite the same.

    See, I thought it was kind of a fun, light bit of news to talk about, clearly it strikes a nerve....BTW, jamesrage has it spot on imho.

    How do you feel about Liz Cheney becoming a FOXNews Contributor? James is right. Without their last names they couldn't get a job in the mail room. They would most likely be on unemployment like a lot of other college graduates their age are.

    I could care less what letter is next to their parents names.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Wasn't Liz Cheney a position holder in the State Dept.? Oh yeah, here it is...

    In 2002, Cheney was appointed to the position of Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs,[4] a pre-existing vacant post with an "economic portfolio," which is a mandate to promote investment in the region. Amid reports, including a New York Times editorial by Paul Krugman, saying that the job was created especially for her, State Department spokesman Richard Boucher said that she had come recommended by then-Secretary of State Colin Powell.[5][6]

    Elizabeth Cheney - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Now, many did obviously say that she got the job because of 'Daddy', but as the Wiki entry says, Powell recommended her, so there's that.

    What credentials did Chelsea have?

    Only if you have an ignorant view of "most liberals".
