Will Chelsea Clinton Ever Run For Office? (VIDEO)

When asked about the prospect of ever running for office like both of her parents, Chelsea Clinton, Vice Chair of the Clinton Foundation, had a great response.

One of Chelsea’s earliest childhood memories was when she was on the campaign trail with her father in Arkansas at the age of three. A woman asked her if she was going to run for governor one day, and Chelsea retorted, “No way! I’m three!” Up until 2008, when her mother ran for office, Chelsea had maintained that same answer, but now, she’s simply not so sure.

During her mother’s 2008 Presidential campaign, Chelsea realized the fundamental importance of running for office. “There are many ways to serve, and right now, my calling is with the Clinton Foundation,” she explained.

“I am really lucky that I live in a city, state and country where I support my elected officials. If I was ever to not feel that way and felt I could make a difference, I’d have to think about it very seriously,” Chelsea told us.
