Chelsea Clinton has the potential to become as an effective IAC/InterActive (IACI) board member, the Deal Professor says, but questions raised by her selection speak to the larger issue of what types of directors should serve on boards. "Too often today directors are clones, having all sprung from the same business background and having been shaped by similar experiences."

    Chelsea wouldn't be near a blackboard much less a board room except for her name.

    This young lady is an elitist having sprung from two elitists Bill and Hillary. Her hubby is an elitist despite his father's jail or criminal record. As an elitist she is entitled to any thing including the presidency of the United States. Directorship of a public corporation is a small step in the right direction for her ascent to her father's throne one day. In a land of entitlements her entitlement is no big deal! Don't worry about it. We are the richest and greatest country on the face of this earth. This lady attests to it.

    This is just an example of how merit is almost irrelevant in our "capitalist" society today. Exactly what has she done to earn this? Born to the right parents? Its fine if Daddy wants to put her in a family run business - thats his right.... but this is a publicly traded company.


    No doubt there will be government money and decisions favoring this firm in the next Obama administration.
