Bill and Hillary Clinton last month quietly plunked down $1.16 million to purchase the 3,631 square-foot house next to their Chappaqua, N.Y. home, the New York Post reports.

Wow.

Nobody around them cautioned this could prove really bad optics for a Democratic nominee already struggling to counter charges she is elitist and out of touch with ordinary Americans?

Or did the Clintons think they could keep this secret until after the election? Like her bout with pneumonia?

The three bedroom “ranch-style home [is] set on 1.51 leafy acres,” according to veteran Post reporter Jennifer Gould.

An unnamed source told the Post, “Rumor has it that the Clintons plan to use this as a mother/daughter house for Chelsea and her kids to visit on the weekends when they want to escape the city and their Flatiron digs since the Chappaqua house has a nice pool and plenty of rolling green lawn for kids to play on.”
