Hillary Clinton given wedding presents for Chelsea
The wedding presents are rolling in from around the world.
Today, while in Hanoi for diplomatic meetings a little over a week before the July 31 wedding of Chelsea Clinton, U.S. Secretary of State and mother-of-the-bride Hillary Clinton was given a wedding present — a white tablecloth — for her daughter by the Vietnamese government. She was also given a gemstone mosaic portrait of her with Chelsea during their 2000 visit to the country.
“Very nice,” Clinton said when Vietnamese Foreign Minister Pham Gia Khiem presented her with the gifts, reports AP. Clinton is on the last leg of a four-nation tour that also took her to Afghanistan, Pakistan and South Korea — all while helping to plan the wedding. Clinton said that traveling while “trying to help organize my daughter’s wedding is proof … that I may be lacking in common sense.”
