Chelsea Clinton open to running for political office [View all]

Source: Washington Post

The daughter of former president Bill Clinton and former secretary of state Hillary Clinton says she is open to running for political office one day.

“Right now I’m grateful to live in a city, in a state and a country where I strongly support my mayor, and my governor, and my president, and my senators, and my representative,” Clinton told NBC News, where she is employed as a special correspondent. ”If at some point that weren’t true and I thought I could make a meaningful and measurably greater impact, you know, I’d have to ask and answer that question.”

Clinton has been raising her profile in the past few months, fueling speculation that she is interested in launching a political career. She helped her father put on this year’s Clinton Global Initiative University, a summit for college students and has moderated panels on non-profit work and climate change.

In a recent interview with Parade magazine, Clinton also left the door open to a political bid, if she “thought that I could make a disproportionately positive impact.” Asked if she could describe the circumstances that might bring her into politics, Clinton said, “No, but I’ve never thought too far into the future.” She told Vogue last summer that up until her mother’s 2008 presidential bid she was uninterested in a political career but was no longer sure how she felt.
