Though she was no there, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton says preparing for her daughter’s wedding was the most wonderful, difficult and stressful task she’s taken on in the last few months.
In an interview for broadcast Sunday on ABC’s This Week, Hillary said that being the mother of the bride and planning a wedding is always stressful.
But, she says, “Doing it long distance, jet-lagged, on planes, in the midst of diplomatic negotiations, made it a little more so.”
Chelsea wed her longtime boyfriend, investment banker Marc Mezvinsky, earlier this summer before an exclusive high society gathering at an elegant estate in upstate New York.
As for Bill’s thoughts on his son-in-law? During his appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman earlier this week, he said: “I’ve known him since he was in high school. He and Chelsea were the closest of friends for half their lives. They never even went out until about three years ago. And they either fell madly in love or realized they always had been and just didn’t know it. But it’s a wonderful thing because they know each other so well.”
