I hear that Noble Peace prizes are also given out for political reasons.

"I think it's fair to say that this man may not be the best example of a "father" that some of us would want to emulate." - Gregory Weigle

I don't recall Chelsea Clinton being (repeatedly) busted for underage-drinking (in Austin), or drunken-driving (most everywhere-else...for that matter).

You'd have nominated a Bush, or Reagan, instead??

How many men have affairs but remain a good parent? How many divorce and remain engaged in their children's lives? Once again, treatment or behavior towards the wife is not a reflection of love for the children. There seems to be a lot of damaged children and adults who somehow believe they have a part in the poor and failed parental relationships. this was not Husband of the Year.

It' obvious Sham lacks the intelligence to make a rational and meaningful thought process on any given subject without going astray.

Slick Willie deserves the 'Father of the Year' award as much as Barry deserves the Nobel Peace Prize.

"Ever notice how much Chelsea looks like Web Hubbell?"

This kind of thing is indicative of how far the right has fallen. "Let's attack the children of people we consider our enemies".

First the NRA releases a despicable ad attacking the President's children, and ad that was called reprehensible by the likes of both Joe Scarborough, AND Chris Christie, and now this.

More than Ben Roethlisberger deserves barroom rapist of the year?

Shamwow said - "I don't recall Chelsea Clinton being (repeatedly) busted for underage-drinking (in Austin), or drunken-driving (most everywhere-else...for that matter)." Clearly he was referring to the Bush twin daughters there.

And right after that, in criticism of my observation that Chelsea Clinton looks more like Web Hubbell than she does Bill or Hillary Clinton, Chris has the chutzpah to say "This kind of thing is indicative of how far the right has fallen. "Let's attack the children of people we consider our enemies"."

Let's see you blast Shamwow the same as you blasted me Chris. Or is it only the children of Democrat politicians are off limits?

The award was for father not husband. Too bad some don't know the difference. Considering his daughter wasn't arrested, caught doing drugs, attended college, works, married. I would say the Clintons did a pretty good job raising a level headed young woman while growing up in a huge 'fish bowl'.

I assume that Clinton was contacted to see if he was agreeable to the award before it was made public. I think he should have turned it down.

What's your system for remembering to take your stupid pills Vince. I've never noticed a day when you forgot them.

I would say to the letter writer that President Clinton would be a far more appropriate recipient of a parent of the year award, than Rick Santorum (who many here supported for President), as Santorum once brought a dead, miscarried fetus home from the hospital for his children to hug. Can't imagine that would screw a kid up at all.

I don’t know who bestowed this award upon Clinton, but there are no doubt many other more deserving dads out there.

How would you know that Phil? Have you spent a lot of time around president Clinton and his daughter? He may be the greatest dad in the world. His daughter certainly turned out fine.

"Rick Santorum’s wife says in an interview that their decision to bring their dead baby son to their kids wasn’t “some crazy thing” and that it was a personal way to cope with his death. In an interview with CBS News’s Jan Crawford, Karen Santorum opened up about the criticism she and her husband faced for taking their son, Gabriel, home after he died shortly after being born at 20 weeks gestation. The Santorums have been criticized by some for letting their children hold the dead baby; in the interview, Santorum said that “no one can tell me how to grieve.” “We brought Gabriel home from the hospital to have a funeral mass and to bury him. And so they twist it and make it sound like it was some crazy thing.” “We brought him home from the hospital to introduce him to our kids and place him, it was for the funeral mass and the burial. And what is so sad to me Jan is that no one can tell me how to grieve, and I’m not going to tell anyone else how to grieve, it's not right"

What do you say about someone that brings a dead fetus home to the kids? That's outrageous.
