Great news: Chelsea Clinton open to running for office someday
Hot Air ^ | April 8, 2013 | Allahpundit

Posted on 04/08/2013 2:45:49 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

George H.W. vs. Bill was Bush/Clinton I. Jeb vs. Hillary could be Bush/Clinton II. And if we’re very lucky, George P. will win his race for Texas land commissioner and Chelsea will ease into public service with a Senate seat in New York or something and we’ll be on track for Bush/Clinton III circa 2032.

Two points about this. One: It’s proof of how insatiable the media’s appetite for dynastic politics is (especially Democratic dynasties) that this is biggish news today even though she said the same thing six months ago. You get the feeling that Chelsea could go on making rote “maybe someday” statements every year for the next quarter-century and the media will cover every last one with the same “is she finally ready?” tone of breathless inevitability. That’s what it means to be a golden-child scion of the House of Clinton. If you doubt it, remember how insane the coverage was of Caroline Kennedy possibly being appointed to fill Hillary’s vacant Senate seat in 2008. (Hillary’s seat used to be RFK’s seat so Caroline’s appointment would have brought two dynastic storylines together.) Forty-five years after JFK’s death, despite the fact that she had never sought office before, the possibility that America might be gifted with Senator Caroline was the biggest story in politics. Instead, she’s likely to end up as our next ambassador to Japan even though East Asia is the hottest geopolitical spot on the planet right now and she has no diplomatic experience. There’s no job so difficult or delicate that the right pedigree can’t qualify you for it....

Chelsea is always good for a bit of comic relief.

That is if one finds puking one’s guts out inside a taxi cab is humorous.

She is her father’s daughter for certain!

Maybe her parents could move back into the White House like Barack’s Mother-In-Law did.

Well, if “moron” is a demographic, she certainly has it sewn up...

If it wasn’t for her nose, her chin, her forehead and her over generous mouth she’d be beautiful.

Her beauty is inherited from her glamorous mother.

Chelsea running for office is enough to gag a maggot.

I am soooo relieved. There was that .01% chance she wouldn’t inherit the royal scepter.

President of Planned Parenthood?
President of Georgetown Sluts For Condoms Union?

We not only have to put up with their stupid parents, we have to suffer with their offspring. We’ll never be rid of these people. Feeding at the public trough is a lifestyle to them!

“Her beauty is inherited from her glamorous mother.”

How can you call that sad sack of waddling slime whose looks would be improved by a burka beauty?

Yeah, but she doesn't have that frog wart above her right lip, nor the saggy bags under her eyes. She'd still scare a buzzard off a $hit wagon.

Run for office? No, we should simply give it to her as her due. Anyone pulling down six figures as a "consultant" on an entry-level position out of college is far too brilliant to have to mix it up in the grubby machinery of running for office.

Rand's term for this was "aristocracy of pull". It fits.

One silver lining about being dead before the next generation of inbred frauds hit the electoral scene.

It should work out well for the Dems.

After 8 yrs of Hillary ending in Jan 2025, we can have 8 years of MooseChelle Obama, then 8 of Chels, then 8 of Malia Obama-El Shabazz.

Good for it.

I am certainly open to not ever voting for it either.

She does have all the qualification to run as a liberal, really to many to count, but the most significant would be, she is not very smart, and she is very gullible.

perhaps she can appoint Bill (who claims to be her father) as supervisor of Interns. After all, he was getting multiple “services” while the teenage Chelsea was upstairs in their home. She is almost as qualified to be Pres as the current Resident, Oenema.

I think it is normal for people to stay in the family business. Seriously,you should see the multiple generation that graduated from the Naval Academy. Many farmers have kids who end up farmers. Nobody complaint about Rand. Paul getting in the business.

Wonderful. I can’t stand the Clintons and I dread the thought of another one having their hands on the tiller of our country.

Could be an asset. That the dogs would likely turn themselves in could save a lot of taxpayer money.
