Back at the beginning of November 2016, Chelsea Clinton was certainly already planning what she would do once she was First Daughter again. If Hillary Clinton had won the presidential election, as was predicted by the polls, Chelsea would become the first ever two-time First Daughter under different presidents.
Thankfully, however, Hillary Clinton was soundly defeated in a huge upset by political outsider Donald Trump. Now that the Clinton clan has found itself totally powerless in Washington, D.C., Chelsea was forced to make an unexpected admission.
Many in establishment liberal circles were eagerly awaiting Chelsea to make her grand entrance in elected politics, likely taking up a race to replace a retiring congresswoman in a safely Democratic district just north of New York City.
However, with the loss of her family’s political standing, Chelsea ended up deciding differently. She recently stated to Vanity Fair magazine, “I am not running for public office.” She added, “I really am constantly surprised by the stories of me running for — fill in the blank — Congress, Senate, city council, the presidency. I really find this all rather hysterical, because I’ve been asked this question a lot throughout my life, and the answer has never changed.”
She continued, explaining that people running for elected positions have to ask two crucial questions of themselves: First, “Do you have a vision for what you want to do in this job?” Second, “Do you think you’d do a better job than whomever else is there now?” Chelsea came to the realization that she would not do a better job than other people with less family baggage. Are you surprised that Chelsea admitted this about herself?
