The secret of Chelsea's wedding is officially over.
Former President Bill Clinton strolled up the main street in Rhinebeck, N.Y., shortly after noon Friday, the day before his daughter is to marry Marc Mezvinsky at the much-ballyhooed wedding at a private estate.
The former president, looking relaxed in blue jeans and a black knit shirt, walked with security a few blocks north from the picturesque village's main intersection to Gigi Trattoria, whose chef is rumored to be catering tonight's rehearsal dinner.
To questions blurted from the huge crowd he attracted, Clinton fired off easy answers. They're all fine, they love Rhinebeck, Chelsea loves Rhinebeck, too.
Of his future son-in-law, he said he and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton like and admire him.
