We provide and discuss an elementary proof of the exponential con- ditioning of real Vandermonde matrices which can be easily given in undergraduate courses: we exclusively use the definition of conditioning and the sup-norm formula on $[-1,1]$ for Chebyshev polynomials of first kind. The same proof idea works virtually unchanged for the famous Hilbert matrix.
