Finally! The Clinton Family has a compound

As every Godfather fan knows, you’ve got to have a compound when your famiglia hits the big time.  I am sure we are supposed to associate “family compound” with the words “Hyannis” and “Kennedy,” but for me, “Corleone” comes to mind.

And the Clintons certainly have done that and more.  Jennifer Gould of the New York Post reports:

It’s not quite the Kennedy compound in Hyannis Port, but Bill and Hillary Clinton are expanding their Westchester spread by buying the house next door, The Post has learned.

The Clintons shelled out $1.16 million for the three-bedroom, 3,631-square-foot, ranch-style home set on 1.51 leafy acres on Old House Lane in Chappaqua.

Westchester County land records and tax records from the town of New Castle — where Chappaqua is located — list William and Hillary Clinton as owners of the property.

The “rumor” is that this is to be for Chelsea and her family, though they have a huge luxury apartment in Manhattan, and if Hillary is in the White House, would family gatherings take place here?

From what I understood about the existing Chappaqua house,  Bill has gotten the most use out of it.  And we do suspect that going to the mattresses is one of his favorite activities, so a family compound does have a certain logic.
