Chelsea Clinton has announced that she’s not running for office, at least for now. Maybe this means the media will stop writing four or five puff pieces about her every day.
Chelsea Clinton: ‘I Am Not Running for Public Office’ (EXCLUSIVE)
Since the election, there’s been endless chatter that Chelsea Clinton might follow in her parents’ footsteps. But in an interview with Variety, she quashed those rumors.
“I am not running for public office,” Clinton said.
Clinton has been grilled about a number of hypothetical political careers since she was a young girl, growing up in the Arkansas Governor’s Mansion and the White House. “I really am constantly surprised by the stories of me running for, fill in the blank—Congress, Senate, City Council, the presidency,” Clinton said. “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.”
Clinton, 37, maintained that while it’s important for young people to consider public service, prospective candidates should ask themselves several questions: “Do you have a vision for what you want to do in this job?”
