President-elect Bill Clinton announced Tuesday that his 12-year-old daughter, Chelsea, will attend an exclusive private school in northwest Washington, calling the move a "family decision" and not a statement about the city's troubled public schools.

As the candidate, Bill Clinton took it on the chin for reports of infidelity and draft dodging. As the candidate's independent wife, Hillary got it for being "uppity."
