Chelsea Clinton suggests she may run for public office in the future - VIDEO
A second generation of Clinton leadership could one day be a reality
It's a nightmare scenario for many conservatives, but a second generation of Clinton leadership may be on the cards. It's looking increasingly likely that Chelsea Clinton, the former first daughter, might very well decide to run for political office in the future.
According to Today, Clinton made a rare public appearance over the weekend to discuss the growing speculation about the possibility of her mother, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, making a White House run in 2016.
But in news that may unsettle some Republican leaders, she also left the door open to running for public office herself someday.
'I deeply respect and appreciate all of the admiration and respect and gratitude for my mother's service,' she told Today. 'As a daughter, I very much want her to make the right choice for herself, and I know that will be the right choice for our country, and I’ll support her in whatever she chooses to do.'
Clinton junior has raised her visibility in recent weeks by helping run Clinton Global Initiative University, an annual meeting that her father's service agency holds for college students.
Over the weekend, Clinton moderated panels in St. Louis, where the topics ranged from human trafficking to childhood mortality.
Asked point blank in an interview if she might one day be interested in following in the footsteps of her mother and father, she replied:
'Right now I'm grateful to live in a city, a state and a country where I strongly support my mayor, my governor, my president and my senators and my representative.
'If at some point that weren't true and I thought I could make a meaningful and measurably greater impact, I'd have to ask and answer that question.'
Clinton credits her maternal grandmother, Dorothy Rodham, for pointing her toward a more active role in public service.
'She probably didn't think of it as urging – she definitely thought of it as, you know, grandmotherly nagging, and she exercised that prerogative often,' Clinton said.
