Chelsea Clinton turned 14 years old Sunday. And that's about all the White House will say about her birthday.
"We don't talk about Chelsea," said Neel Lattimore, spokesman for first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Even privately, aides were reluctant to talk about the nation's first daughter. The Clintons, determined to raise their daughter as normally as possible, have made it clear that talk about Chelsea is off limits.
Officials did say, though, that several of her teenaged friends spent Saturday night at the White House. The teens ate a birthday breakfast with the president, who went to church early Sunday and spent the day in the residence so he could be around Chelsea.
She is a ninth-grader at Sidwell Friends, a private school in Washington.
