Why Sarah Palin Needs to Take Parenting Lessons From Hillary Clinton!

Posted: Updated:

Need proof that the Secretary of State is an A+ mom? Check out her daughter Chelsea who didn't get pregnant at 17 or announce her engagement on the cover of a magazine, and who isn't shopping a reality show like Bristol Palin.

Isn't it ironic that uber-working mom Hillary -- who took heat as First Lady because she didn't take her cookie recipes seriously -- should be the mom of a Stanford and Oxford University grad, who is getting married on July 31, at the age of 30?

And Chelsea's not pregnant! She has a great job at Avenue Capital Group, a hedge fund, and her husband-to-be is a 32-year-old investment banker -- Marc Mezvinsky -- who has not stripped naked for Playgirl or any other form of media. Sarah's future son-in-law, on the other hand, after his adventures as a nude model and D-Lister Kathy Griffin's date, is currently unemployed but is planning to get his GED and be an electrician.

Furthermore, Chelsea's wedding, in which 400 guests are expected, is a personal and private affair -- in other words, the photos and story are not being sold for the cover of US Weekly, unlike Bristol Palin and her baby daddy Levi Johnston's.

"My lips are sealed," Hillary told NBC's Andrea Mitchell in an interview July 18, "I am under very strict orders not to talk about it."

But, at least she knows about it ... every detail. "It's the most important activity going on in my life right now, I have to confess," Hillary told China's Central Television. "Probably just a tiny bit of a motherly overstatement."
