Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton says she has apologized to her daughter for recent comments about young people -- and work.

Clinton said at a gathering in Washington last week that young people "think work is a four letter word" and they have a sense of entitlement after growing up in a "culture that has a premium on instant gratification."

Clinton told a commencement audience yesterday that her daughter, Chelsea, phoned to complain after learning about the comments, telling her mom "I do work hard and my friends work hard."

New York's junior senator says she just wants to "set the bar high" for young people because "we are in a competition for the future."
