Chelsea Clinton goes from ‘no way’ to ‘maybe’ on political bid
Great. Just what we need, another Clinton.
Check it out:
Chelsea Clinton is no longer an automatic “no” when it comes to running for office someday.
The former first daughter is now willing to leave the door open — a teeny, tiny bit — to a political bid, according to an interview with Fast Company.
“I live in a city and a state and a country where I support my elected representatives,” Clinton told the business magazine. “If at some point that weren’t the case, and I didn’t support my mayor or my city councilwoman or my congresswoman or either of my senators — and I’m lucky to live in a state where I have lots of women representing me, you know — maybe then I’d have to ask and answer the question for myself, and come to a different answer.”
Clinton, 34, lives in New York City. Her name came up in 2011 as possibly running for the congressional seat now held by Rep. Nita Lowey, D-N.Y., but that idea got shot down in a hurry.
In the Fast Company story about Clinton’s career evolution and work at her family’s foundation, the daughter of Bill and Hillary Rodham Clinton recounts how she’s been asked about whether she’ll run for office ever since she could remember.
