Jessica Rudd on the impact of her dad's downfall on the family.

Most of us love to hate our politicians.

But when we mock, ridicule and criticise, we rarely think about the impact on those they love, and who love them.

This week our Debrief Daily podcast Just Between Us was inspired by the grace, temperament, manners and infinite patience of Chelsea Clinton, daughter of Bill and Hillary.

She reveals the impact his downfall had on her and her family. Now heavily pregnant, she ponders what she will tell her children about entering politics and the role of her mother in her brand new business venture.
