THE FOLKS AT OCCUPY WALL ST. have it all wrong. If you want to get your job-creation message across on the news, you don't need to camp outside in the cold; you need your daddy to be president.

Now "NBC Nightly News" and Brian Williams ' "Rock Center" have hired Chelsea Clinton . Chelsea will report stories for the feel-good "Making a Difference" series.

I am feeling a little post-election smugness because I endorsed Clinton early on. When I say Clinton, I mean it in the loosest way. Actually, I mean Chelsea, and her father only in the sense that if he raised her he's got something good going on there. It doesn't matter whom I endorsed, of course, because I'm too young to vote. Because of this minor hindrance, it's dubious that any president will directly champion my interests or even understand what they are. Politicians' ideas of youth are limited to an amorphous rhetorical device, a first cousin of "the future," if you will.

WHEN TATTLE first heard about former first daughter Chelsea Clinton and Hollywood party princess Tara Reid being gal pals, we thought it was funny. According to radaronline.com, Chelsea's mom, Hillary, didn't see the humor. Chelsea and Tara (an Eagles fan, at least until Monday night) reportedly met in Europe over the summer and became tight after Chelsea broke up with longtime boyfriend Ian Klaus. "It's almost like Chelsea dumped Ian for Tara," says a Radar source. "All of a sudden Tara was staying at Chelsea's in New York, and they were going out to Bungalow 8 and Nobu every night.

Chelsea Clinton reportedly will take a dancing turn with the Bolshoi Ballet this weekend after joining her dad in Moscow today. Sources say a chance to join the famed company at a practice session has been an ambition of the first daughter, an aspiring dancer who performed last month in a Washington production of The Nutcracker. All of this depends, of course, on whether she actually accompanies her mother on the flight to Russia. The White House, not inclined to respond to Chelsea queries, would not say if the teenager will go, but it's known that she wants to and this week she concluded final exams at Sidwell Friends School.

Chelsea Clinton split about a week ago with her first serious boyfriend, Matthew Pierce, their relationship a victim of her father's sex scandal, yesterday's New York Post reported. The paper quoted a source as saying that the first daughter "was devastated" by the Monica Lewinsky mess last summer "and she leaned on Matt heavily when they came back [to Stanford U.] this term.

THE CARTOON in Friday's Daily News claiming Bill Clinton had disappeared with Chelsea's bridesmaids was less than tasteless. It was insensitive, mean-spirited - and far from humorous. It wasn't even an original idea. I am shocked that it passed muster to be printed. Did no one have the decency to reject it? How very sad that no consideration was given to Chelsea's wedding as her own very special day. Must children always suffer for sins of their parents? Helen Miller Philadelphia

Chelsea Clinton got a teenager's dream yesterday on her 16th birthday. She was offered three cars. All were turned down by the first parents. The cars were all offered by radio stations seeking max publicity. One, Cincinnati's WOFX-FM, even had its gift, a well-used 1978 Olds costing $1,000, driven to the White House for the occasion. As usual with the first daughter, details about her day were sparse. A White House spokesman, noting it was a school night, said marking her 16th would be a fam affair with perhaps a bigger celebration later this week with her buds.
