Good Luck, Chelsea!

Chelsea Clinton wed her long-time sweetheart Marc Mezvinkski, a rising star in the investment banking world. in Rhinebeck. The multi-million dollar affair was a ceremony fit for a princess with all kinds of jet-set guests from New York to Hollywood. It was a mixed faith ceremony since Chelsea is Methodist and Marc is Jewish. 

The weather cooperated perfectly and air traffic was banned anywhere near the upstate New York setting. Clinton haters and lots of lunch pale Americans will surely decry the lavish expenditures for such an event during tough times, but the bottom line is, the Clintons earned their money and love being a part of larger than life events. Lots of people made a buck off the event so what's the complaint?

Regardless of what one thinks of the Clintons, this is a time to put that aside and wish the young couple all the best. Not knowing a good Jewish wedding toast, we'll just turn to Mr. Spock's line from the original Star Trek, "Live long and prosper."
