Chelsea Clinton, the daughter of former President Bill Clinton and former secretary of State Hillary Clinton, might make it a political trifecta for the Clinton dynasty.
The former first daughter who currently works as a "special correspondent" with NBC, told that station in an interview on Monday that if she feels at some point in her life that she could make an impact on America, she would consider running for political office.
"Right now, I'm grateful to live in a city and a state and a country where I strongly support my mayor, my governor, my president and my senators and my representative," said the former first daughter who lives in New York City on NBC's "Today." "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."
The young Clinton also addressed mounting speculation surrounding the presidential ambitions of her mother Hillary Clinton who recently signed a major book deal with Simon & Schuster to publish her memoirs as secretary of State. The book is expected in June 2014.
"I deeply respect and appreciate all of the admiration and respect and gratitude for my mother's service," Chelsea Clinton said. "As a daughter, I very much want her to make the right choice for herself. I know that will be the right choice for our country, and I'll support her in whatever she chooses to do."
In March, results of a national Quinnipiac poll showed that if presidential elections were called then, Hillary Clinton would win in match-ups against potential GOP candidates Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin and New Jersey Gov. Christopher Christie.
The former secretary of State beat Christie, 45-37 percent; Rubio, 50-34 percent; and Ryan 50-38 percent. "Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton would start a 2016 presidential campaign with enormous advantages," said Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac
University Polling Institute in a statement on the results. "She obviously is by far the best known and her more than 20 years in the public spotlight allows her to create a very favorable impression on the American people. But it is worth noting that she had very good poll numbers in 2006 looking toward the 2008 election, before she faced a relative unknown in Barack Obama," he added.
Chelsea Clinton's "Today' interview was part of an ongoing roll-out of her public persona. Last week, she hosted several panels at the Clinton Global Initiative. She was also featured on the cover of Parade Magazine on Sunday.
Anyone alive and sentient 20 years ago could have predicted that.
More liberal crap!
Monica would make a better president.
What’s the surprise?
Another half-wit “legacy” looking at building a political dyNASTY, with the emphasis on nasty democrat B***H.
FUBO, FAD, & down with the democrat party.
Its not like she’s going to work a job!!??
Will she go into state politics like her Associate Attorney General father, Webb Hubbell? Or will she enter national politics like her senator/SoS mother, Hildabeast Rodman Clinton?
Monica would make a better president.
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
CC probably does but we do know that Monica knows when to sit, bow, or kneel at the proper time.
.....which means people acquainted with her better watch out. They could end up the victim of a suicide by beheading.
And she’s learned when to keep he mouth shut.
Just because her parents will have done two terms each in the White House by the time her turn comes up doesn’t mean she has a lock on a future presidency. Moochelle will be expecting her turn in the barrel too, along with San Antonio mayor Julian Castro. She’s going to have a long wait.
Why not? We’ve turned into a country of children looking for a dictator government to handle everything for us. Why shouldn’t we be ruled by a dynasty of Clintons or Kennedys with some Bushes thrown in here and there to give the Left someone to blame the bad times on? The path to power and wealth in America is no longer building your own business. Its making your way up through government and political positions and then moving into a high paying corporate job where you can peddle your influence.
Freepers have refused to fess up the money to collect and test DNA from the various individuals involved.
Until that is done, your allegations are just bull sit
I’m sure she’d have backing but what has she done in any substantive way to qualify herself for the political arena? I guess she may be as well qualified as some, maybe many who are in the arena.
Was there ever any doubt???
Why not, that is the family business.
