Kenyan offers livestock dowry for Chelsea Clinton
(CNN) -- What can 40 goats and 20 cows buy a Kenyan man? Chelsea Clinton's love, if you ask Godwin Kipkemoi Chepkurgor.
Hillary Clinton says she would let her daughter Chelsea know about a Kenyan man's unique marriage offer.

Hillary Clinton says she would let her daughter Chelsea know about a Kenyan man's unique marriage offer.

The Kenyan man first offered the dowry nine years ago to then-President Bill Clinton in asking for the hand of his only child. He renewed it Thursday after Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was asked about the proposal at a Nairobi town hall session.

CNN's Fareed Zakaria, the session's moderator, commented that given the economic crisis at hand, Chepkurgor's dowry was "not a bad offer."

However, Clinton said her daughter was her own person.

"She's very independent," she said. "So I will convey this very kind offer."

1. Maybe They'll Have A Son
Chelsea and this Kenyan man will have a son. This boy will grow up to run for President. And people will say he's not eligible...

5. Which state should we fly to so we can plant the phony info in the newspapers
so it'll look like the son was really born here?

And do you really think that it would have to be Hillary's grandson that would run for office? I would imagine any granddaughters would be very confident and powerful women in their own right - look at their inspiration

2. I saw the video of that...
Hillary was very gracious in a very delicate situation. I think she's doing a great job as SOS.

4. Oh yeah! I bid 50 goats and 25 Angus Cows!
Well Chelsea is a beautiful, intelligent woman! :)

I also thought that SOS Clinton handled the situation brilliantly.
