Chelsea Clinton Talks About Her Own Political Future
Although the year 2016 is still a good distance away, folks on either side of the political aisle can’t stop wondering if former First Lady Hillary Clinton will run for the oval office or not, which is why her daughter Chelsea Clinton has been asked over and over what her mom’s future plans are.
In a Las Vegas Human Rights Conference this past weekend, Chelsea didn’t let on one way or another whether her mom will throw her hat in the political ring, and it’s safe to assume that she wouldn’t tell people even if she did know.
“My crystal ball is no clearer than yours,” she said.
In addition, the former First Daughter said both she and her mom will continue to fight for human rights, especially when it comes to gay and women’s issues.
“My mother has often said that the issue of women’s rights is the unfinished business of the 21st century [and] that is certainly true,” said Chelsea. “But so, too, are the issues of LGTBQ rights, the unfinished business of the 21st century.”
And when it comes to her own political aspirations, Chelsea said she’s currently living in the best of both worlds, because she can talk about the issues that she’s passionate about, like human rights, and at the same time she can be a regular citizen and enjoy her personal life and her family.
“I’m grateful to live in a city and a state and a country where I really believe in my elected officials, and their ethos and their competencies,” she said in a 2013 interview. “Someday, if either of those weren’t true and I thought I could make more of a difference in the public sector, or if I didn’t like how my city or state or country were being run, I’d have to ask and answer that question.”
