WaPo: She May be the Most Boring Person of her Era

In his review of the new NBC news magazine “Rock Center with Brian Williams”, the Washington Post TV critic wrote that Chelsea Clinton, the daughter of former President Bill Clinton and current Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is so lacking in charisma that she may be the most boring person of her era.

WaPo TV Critic Hank Stuever held nothing back.

With vitriol practically oozing out of  his PC keyboard, Stuever gave Clinton both barrels.

“It’s no surprise whatsoever that Chelsea Clinton didn’t electrify broadcast journalism with her debut Monday night on NBC’s “Rock Center With Brian Williams,” because she has no experience in broadcast journalism.She didn’t cut her teeth with live coverage of strip-mall blazes in Sacramento. She never did weekend weather in Wichita Falls. She didn’t blow the lid off mail-order ham scams in Des Moines. (Who — besides everyone working in TV news who did each and every one of those things — says you have to do all that?)

Rather, what was surprising to see on Monday night’s show is how someone can be on TV in such a prominent way and, in her big moment, display so very little charisma — none at all.

Either we’re spoiled by TV’s unlimited population of giant personalities or this woman is one of the most boring people of her era.”

Of course everyone knows that Clinton got this job because of who she is. If she were anyone else, no TV station anywhere would hire her.

But hey!  If your dad was President and your mom is Secretary of State, you can start at the top.  Who needs to waste all that time getting real experience?

We can only hope that Clinton realizes that when you start at the top, there’s nowhere to go but down.
