Chelsea Clinton Home For Mom’s Birthday

Associated Press

Chelsea Clinton crept into the White House early Saturday morning - a surprise treat for her mom’s 50th birthday.

It was her first trip home since leaving for college last month.

Secret Service agents said Chelsea - a Stanford University freshman - arrived from the airport at around 2 a.m., with more than enough time for private celebrations of Hillary Rodham Clinton’s birthday today.

“It was a huge surprise for the first lady,” spokeswoman Marsha Berry said. While President Clinton normally spends a few hours in the Oval Office on weekends, it was shuttered Saturday as the reunited family spent a quiet day in the White House residence.
