She has politics in her blood, literally, but is Chelsea Clinton thinking about running for office, and would that be a good idea? Rumors are that the 37-year-old daughter of President Bill Clinton and former presidential candidate Secretary Hillary Clinton is being groomed for a political run.
If this is any indication, Clinton has been hitting Twitter hard ever since Donald Trump replaced President Barack Obama. Her latest tweet criticized Republican Senator Steve King of Iowa for racist comments about “immigrant babies:”
‘Clearly the Congressman does not view all our children as, well, all our children. Particularly ironic and painful on Purim.’

The woman who grew up in the White House earned degrees from both Stanford University and the University of Oxford, where she earned a degree in international relations. In 2010, she began working on a Ph.D. at New York University
One of her mother’s former advisors spoke to the New York Post on the subject of Chelsea Clinton taking the torch from Hillary Clinton. After all, the New York Democratic Representative Nita Lowey of New York is 79-years-old.
The New York Daily News also speculated that famous daughter might be being groomed for Democratic Senator Kirsten Gillibrand’s seat, if the senator decides to make a presidential run in 2020.
Veteran political consultant Hank Sheinkopf told the New York Post:
‘The super-aggressive tweets are a way to create a constituency around her. Particularly in New York, where people don’t like Donald Trump.’

Angus Kirk tweeted:
‘What are they setting up here? Chels said she’s not running for Senate in 2018, at least not in NY.’

The former president’s daughter is currently vice chair of the Clinton Foundation and an adjunct professor at Columbia University, teaching global health governance. In addition, the mother of two co-authored a book It’s Your World.
Maybe, Chelsea Clinton is just being a loyal daughter, defending her mother’s reputation and the Democratic political view.
Democratic National Convention attendee Guinevere Boyd was negative about Clinton and told the Washington Times:
‘Chelsea needs to go away. She has nothing to offer. She has said some horrible, clueless things about progressives and progressive issues.’
Chelsea Clinton understands better than most the political demands upon self and family. Therefore, it is likely she will take a long look at joining the political fray before entering the rat race, if she ever does.
