Talking to Myself

Chelsea Clinton has moved on from Rush Limbaugh — after the bombastic conservative radio host compared the 12-year-old first daughter to a dog in 1992.

Clinton recalled the “indubious honor” from Limbaugh but says she learned to develop “a thick skin as a survival tactic.”

“Maybe that’s an extreme example, but unless a lot has changed in middle school and high school since I was a student, I can promise you that every woman in this room has encountered something similar,” she told the National Conference for College Women Student Leaders Thursday at the University of Maryland.

"Let the rain kiss you
Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops
Let the rain sing you a lullaby
The rain makes still pools on the sidewalk
The rain makes running pools in the gutter
The rain plays a little sleep song on our roof at night
And I love the rain.” 

Langston Hughes
