Chelsea Clinton Might Run for Office

Chelsea Clinton tells Vogue that she's not ruling out a potential run for office.

Said Clinton: "Before my mom's campaign I would have said no. Not because it was something I had thought a lot about but because people have been asking me that my whole life. Even during my father's 1984 gubernatorial campaign, it was, Do you want to grow up and be governor one day? No. I am four."

She continued: "And now I don't know... I mean, I have voted in every election that I have been qualified to vote in since I turned eighteen. I believe that engaging in the political process is part of being a good person. And I certainly believe that part of helping to build a better world is ensuring that we have political leaders who are committed to that premise. So if there were to be a point where it was something I felt called to do and I didn't think there was someone who was sufficiently committed to building a healthier, more just, more equitable, more productive world? Then that would be a question I'd have to ask and answer."
