This is a work of fiction. Any resemblance to persons living or dead is purely coincidental.
It was 1994, so they named the baby girl Chelsea, after another young girl who had just become famous. It was ironic, actually, because her mother turned into a Republican shortly afterwards. The girl's father, who was the one that chose the name, had been a Democrat, and when he abandoned them, her mother felt that anything associated with him was to be spurned. So, she switched political parties, she dyed her hair, she moved to a different city; she thought about changing Chelsea's name, but the paperwork involved depressed her, so her daughter and her name remained the only things her ex-husband left permanently in her life.
