TAMPA, Fla. - Chelsea Clinton, in the role of pseudo-journalist, stopped by the Republican National Convention for a couple of hours to moderate a portion of the Atlantic and National Journal's "Conversations with the Next Generation" event. There,

Clinton interviewed a handful of people including former D.C. Schools Chancellor Michelle Rhee and "Two and a Half Men" cast member Angus T. Jones, in town with the Creative Coalition.

She talked to Jones, now 18-years-old, about how he felt about voting for the first time. "I also hope that as a first-time voter, you get an 'I Voted' sticker," she beamed at one point.

"And you're heading off to the University of Colorado?" she asked. "Yes, ma'am," he replied. The crowd cracked up over the ma'am-ing of the 32-year-old former first daughter. Clinton played along.

"I'm from Arkansas," she said, "I do it to everyone too,"

Clinton stuck around for a couple of minutes after the event to pose for pictures with fans. One brave one even asked her to sign a necktie for him. "Determination gets you a long way," she was overheard telling the group.
