Chelsea Clinton is apparently leaving the door open to a future political run. There’s no word yet on what qualifies her to do so, other than her famous last name.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Chelsea Clinton Now Calls Running for Office a ‘Definite Maybe’
Clinton, the daughter of former President Bill Clinton and two-time presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, has said in the past it was unlikely she would run for elected office. She campaigned heavily for her mother during the 2016 presidential election.
Clinton, speaking at the Edinburgh International Book Festival to promote her children’s book, spoke about how she “abhorred” Donald Trump’s presidency, and she praised Democrats in Congress who are “resisting” his administration, the Guardian reports.
“At federal level, as much as I abhor so much of what President Trump is doing, I have a great amount of gratitude for what my congresswoman and my senators are doing to try to stop him at every point,” Clinton said…
…if my city councillor were to retire, if my congresswoman were to retire, my senators, and I thought that I could make a positive impact, then I think I would really have to ask my answer to that question [of whether to run for office].”
“For me it’s a definite no now, but it’s a definite maybe in the future because who knows what the future is going to bring,” Clinton said.
Chelsea isn’t a particularly compelling public speaker. She might want to work on that before launching her political career.
