Chelsea Clinton Criticizes Bush in N.C.I thought it was inappropriate when students first asked Chelsea about the Monica Lewinsky scandal. But if she's going to go out and insult President Bush and those of us who voted for and continue to support him, then she invites the comparison with her father's time in office and the unsavory scandals which were a daily part of that history.

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Chelsea Clinton returned Monday to North Carolina, telling college students that the world will "breathe a sigh of relief" once President Bush leaves office. Clinton spoke Monday during a town hall meeting with students at North Carolina State University. She later moved on to Peace College in Raleigh to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
Clinton told about 250 people at N.C. State that her mother, New York Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, would work to repair the nation's reputation abroad.
"I think the world will breathe a sigh of relief when this president is gone," Clinton said, criticizing Bush for pulling out of various accordings, including the Kyoto Protocol on global warming.
She urged the crowd to register to vote and to listen to past debates between her mother and rival Illinois Sen. Barack Obama.
She also couldn't avoid questions about her father, good or bad.
An audience member at N.C. State also pressed Clinton to discuss the Monica Lewinsky scandal. Clinton declined to discuss her father's relationship with the White House intern, drawing applause when she told the young man that it was none of his business.
Clinton had a similar exchange last week at Butler University.
And in Chapel Hill, she was asked whether a vote for Hillary Clinton was a vote for Bill Clinton.
"Is a vote for Hillary a vote for Bill? No. A vote for Hillary is a vote for Hillary," she said. "I'm really proud of what my father did in the '90s, but I don't think you should vote for or against my mother based on my father."
