Clinton Daughter Chelsea Rebuffs 9-Year-Old Reporter

VINTON, Iowa (AP) It's a well-known fact that Chelsea Clinton isn't talking to reporters while campaigning for her mother, and that includes nine-year-olds.

Sydney Rieckhoff, an Iowa fourth grader and ``kid reporter'' for Scholastic News, approached the 27-year-old former first daughter after a campaign event yesterday in Vinton, Iowa, and asked if she thought her dad would be a good ``first man'' in the White House.

Chelsea told the pint-size journalist, sorry, but she doesn't ``talk to the press,'' and that includes even cute kids.

Reporters covering the campaign have been put on notice that the young Clinton is not available to speak to them. An aide follows her as she works the crowd, and shushes any reporter who might approach and try to ask a question.

Sydney was a bit crestfallen, but the snub apparently won't hurt the campaign. The girl's mother has already decided to cast her caucus vote for Hillary Clinton.
