KING: “That’s just a little more than a week away. The 1st of October. First and foremost, we wish Chelsea and Mark the best. They are in our thoughts and prayers as this plays out. A lot of people are going to talk about this. Hillary Clinton said she’s going to take a break once this happens, then she’ll make her big decision. Are there politics with the Clinton grandchild?”

KUCINICH: “You know, I think the politics of it boils down to whether it will be 'my granddaughter' or 'grandson' in applause lines when Hillary speaks next year.”
