Chelsea Clinton Hints She May Run For Office if it 'Matched her Talents'
Chelsea may be Democrats last chance to hold on to power
As the Democrats scramble to hold on to the last remaining power they have, the daughter of Bill and Hillary, Chelsea Clinton, has once again hinted that she may run for office.
Back in August, Neon Nettle reported Clinton had not ruled out running for office when quizzed at the Edinborough book festival while promoting her children's book
Chelsea said an run for political office is a "definite maybe."
Seemingly oblivious to her mother's reputation and her father being an actual rapist, she doesn't seem to think that would taint her chances of giving politics a shot if someone “steps down or retires.”
"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 told The Journal News on Wednesday.
According to ZH: Suggesting that it was her patriotic duty to spread the Clinton legacy, Chelsea then said that "if you care about what’s happening in the world, you have to care about running for and holding elected office," adding that running for office “is something I think about as I hope every young person thinks about it.”
Clinton then outlined her political beliefs, which not surprisingly, are comparable to those of her parents
: "it’s at the national level where I disagree deeply with President Trump on, l think, everything practically."
Clinton's announcement comes as the Democratic party pushes even further to the left, catering to younger, progressive voters while trying to rid itself of the cynical, focus-grouped centrism of her mother, Hillary Clinton.
Meanwhile, Chelsea's mother clearly has yet to grasp this shift herself and has hung around after her 2016 election loss to President Trump, amid rumors of yet another presidential run in 2020 while reveling in more speaking gigs, and accusing everyone of her loss except herself.
Ironically, Clinton’s refusal to acknowledge defeat has turned the family brand from one inseparable from Democrat politics to one Democrats are yearning to separate from.
This attitude was summed up last week by New York Times editor Michelle Cottle, who called Madam Clinton “politically radioactive,” and Politico Magazine, which pondered “How do you solve a problem like Hillary?”
Meanwhile, despite his lingering charisma, father Bill has been on the receiving end of sexual misconduct allegations, some of them serious, for as long as Chelsea could walk, and Hillary’s continued defense of her philandering husband has kept the name ‘Bill Clinton’ synonymous with indecency in the American consciousness.
Furthermore, as disclosed in the 2016 presidential campaign, the younger Clinton appears to have picked up her parents’ taste for monetary shortcuts.
Emails released by WikiLeaks in 2016 alleged that Chelsea Clinton lived largely off the profits of her parents’ Clinton Foundation for a decade, and used the charity’s funds to finance her wedding to investor Marc Mezvinsky in 2010, all while the foundation was supposed to be rebuilding Haiti.
While a political run for Chelsea Clinton still remains pure speculation, she is doing her best to remain in the public spotlight, regularly speaking on women’s rights, and has (ghost)written several children’s books tackling climate change, bullying and feminism.
