Hillary Clinton Says #GrandmothersKnowBest When It Comes To Vaccinating Kids

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton dove into the Great Vaccine Debate this week with a tweet that left no doubt about where she stands.

Clinton, whose daughter Chelsea made her a first-time grandma four months ago, used the hashtag #GrandmothersKnowBest when she let it rip on Twitter.

Late last year, Clinton -- arguably the world's most powerful grandmother -- cited her "grandmother glow" as fueling her fight for gender equality around the world.

In the end, Clinton's tweet may have been more of a campaign ploy than anything. Even so, with 70 million grandparents in the United States, the hashtag is an obvious one -- especially for a savvy politician who soon may be "grandmother-in-chief."
