Power Hungry Family Won’t Go Away: Chelsea Clinton Says Running For Political Office ‘Is Something I Think About’
Chelsea Clinton is continuing to discuss running for office, saying on Thursday that it is something she thinks about.
Speaking to The Journal News on the tour for her new children’s book Start Now! You Can Make a Difference, she said that she isn’t ruling it out.
“I think if someone were to step down or retire and I thought I could do a good job and it matched my talents, I’d have to think if it’s the right choice for me,” Clinton said.
Clinton added that she hopes that every young person thinks about running for office.
“If you care about what’s happening in the world, you have to care about running for and holding elected office. I hope it’s a question that we ask ourselves,” she said. “For me, I live in a neighborhood in the city and in a state where I feel my family, and what I hope for the world, is well-represented.”
She added that, “It’s at the national level where I disagree deeply with President Trump on, l think, everything practically.”
When asked if her mother, Hillary Clinton, would be running again in 2020, the former First Daughter said that she would support her if she did.
“I support my mom in whatever she wants to do, but she’s never once mentioned that (a presidential run) to me,” Clinton said.
