Chelsea Clinton Engaged: Wedding July 31, 2010

Chelsea Clinton became engaged to longtime boyfriend Marc Mezvinsky over Thanksgiving weekend. With political bonafides himself, Mezvinsky seems a good match for the 29-year-old only child of former President Bill Clinton and current Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Mezvinsky is the son of former Iowa Congressman Ed Mezvinsky and former Pennsylvania congresswoman Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinsky, both Democrats. Mezvinsky currently works for Goldman Sachs. In 2002, his father pleaded guilty to defrauding investors of more than $10 million. Chelsea and Mezvinsky reportedly met in 1996 in Washington, D.C. when colleagues of their parents introduced them, but became closer friends during their time at Stanford University. They announced their engagement, which took place in New York, via email on Friday morning, writing that "despite stories to the contrary" they hadn't gotten secretly hitched this summer, but we are looking toward next summer and hope you all will be there to celebrate with us."
