Chelsea Clinton: I'm 'Attempting To Lead A Purposely Public Life' (VIDEO)

Chelsea Clinton told CNN Monday that she's purposely shifting towards a more public life.

“I had very much led a deliberately private life for a long time, and now I’m attempting to lead a purposely public life," Clinton said when discussing her recent work with the Clinton Foundation and Clinton Global Initiative.

When asked if this move implied budding political plans, Clinton said, "not now."

"I’m also 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 continued. "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."

Speculation over Clinton's intent to run for public office has been a topic of conversation for some time. In fact, she gave an almost identical response to the "Today" show when asked about her openness to running for public office in April.

"Right now I'm grateful to live in a city, in a state and a country where I strongly support my mayor, my governor, my president, my senators and my representative," she said. "If at some point that weren't true and I thought I could make a meaningful and measurably greater impact, I'd have to ask and answer that question."
