Chelsea Clinton Makes Her Debut as an NBC Special Correspondent (VIDEO)

Chelsea Clinton on 'NBC Nightly News'Last night Chelsea Clinton made her debut as an NBC News special correspondent. The former First Daughter appeared on 'Nightly News With Brian Williams' to introduce her 'Making a Difference' segment, which aired in full later on 'Rock Center.'

So, how did she do? Pretty well, as it turned out. Chatting to Williams she was poised and confident, with perhaps just a hint of nerves underlying her banter.

Clinton's report featured the work of Annette Dove, who helps underprivileged children in Pine Bluff, Ark. With food, shelter and tutoring, Dove provides a safety net for some of the most vulnerable members of the community.

Check out Clinton's debut after the jump. And listen closely: When she said, "Thank you Brian, I'm very happy to be here," did somebody in the studio clap?

What did you think of Chelsea Clinton's debut?

Very nice to see what someone in a community is doing to help those in need. I am not a heartless person but, one thing that struck me is the fact she had to file bankruptcy to battle this problem of parents not taking responsibility of their children. Isn't it ironic that the country that affords her federal funding (even though it is down this year according to the story) is also going bankrupt borrowing every .40 on the dollar? It is this kind of situation all over that causes the financial crisis. My wife and I chose to have 2 children she would like to have had 3-4 but financially we made a decision to have 2 and it has worked for us. When do we as a society say enough for the irresponsibility of others? I understand it is not the childs fault but, the parents of these children are destroying this country. Eventually what happened to Annette Dove happens to the country, you go broke! It's sad but what some people think is that those that have don't give enough and I'm here to tell you that's a load of garbage. I made way less then the vice president according to his tax return but gave just as much in charity. Now that being said, I would rather do that then give my money in taxes for the government to give where they feel it is best needed because then you have the Solindra's and the GSA party in Vegas. Anyway, nice story and hopefully people will give in direct charity to Annette Dove now that the story is out there.

Marty just because you don't agree politically with the people doing the reporting on Fox isn't any reason to call them names. That's part of the problems the libs have is they revert to calling names when they have no answer to an argument. Anyway, I hope she does well, NBC needs all the help it can get since Fox beats the snot out of them in the ratings.

She needs a little more experience, I thought she was a little bit blah! But, she will get there!

Hey whatever... she was fine.  Almost anyone else in her position would do the exact same thing.  It's not like there is a high level of professionalism in the media club she joined.  Good for her.  Here's a hilarious write-up of her wedding last year by a person who attended -

She did pretty well? What planet do you live on? Holy monotone Batman. The only reason someone would listen to her is to cure their insomnia.
