Politics Might Be In Her Future, Chelsea Clinton Hints
NPR ^ | 10/18/2012 | Mark Memmott

Posted on 10/18/2012 7:22:48 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

Though she's dipped her toe into the world of TV journalism, we don't hear a lot from Chelsea Clinton about whether she might one day get into the family business.

But now the BBC has posted an interview in which the daughter of former President Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton doesn't rule out getting into politics herself.

"I don't know. I honestly don't know," she responds when asked, before adding that just saying that is a big change. In the past, the younger Clinton says, she would have ruled out any such notion. But her mother's 2008 presidential campaign has her rethinking things.

And, "I certainly feel a strong call of public service," says the 32-year-old Clinton.

Liberals’ view of ‘public service’ is not your normal ‘public service’.

Why won’t she enlist?

“I certainly feel a strong call of public service,”

There are so many ways to serve the public that don’t involve personal gain from a political career.

I imagine she is probably torn between a life of politics or her own tv reality show.

Why not?

Politics is the last refuge of those who cannot do anything else.

And she most certainly qualifies.

So how well did she do in the corporate world, did she find her niche, and gain respect of her counterparts. This is important. But if it’s about politics, name recognition alone will sometimes get you elected. Just like it was for Jesse Jackson Jr.

Exactly. She has failed at the other jobs she has tried or got bored with them so now its time to try politics! And sadly, as with the Kennedys, there will be some Lib district that has a slavish devotion to the Clinton name that will elect her.

Public Service?

Aptly titled. Especially since "service" is what it's called when a prize stud services a mare.

Public service would have been marrying that goat herder who tried to buy her. Think of what that would have done for international relations.

Chelsea, I'll give you a hint:

Don't let your Mom and Dad campaign for or endorse you. It will sink your prospects faster than anything you could do on your own.

You might consider taking your married name. Maybe the uninformed will not realize who your parents are.

She will probably have to face Beau Biden and some Kennedy spawn in a primary.

Drudge had a story up that she’s undertaking a War against Diarrhea. I kid you not...

But hey, I don’t visit the sins of the parents onto the children or vice versa — just remember Ron Reagan Jr.

Her timing on this might be fairly good.

Once the Marines drag Barry, Big Moo, Malaria, Sasquatch, Granny Robinson and
Bo The Dog out of the White House there will be room for another dog to move in.

She’s in luck. The only thing the MSM likes more than a Clinton is a Kennedy. You’ve got a free ride Chelsea - it’s what the press thinks of as ‘the American Way’... Are you charmed?

“Drudge had a story up that she’s undertaking a War against Diarrhea. I kid you not...”

I haven’t read that, but if she is genuinely concerned about
this more power to her. It is one of the main killers of
third world children. It doesn’t have the cache of AIDS or
breast cancer so it doesn’t get the support of the types who
are more concerned with promoting their own good works than
actually doing some real good. P.J. O’Rourke wrote about
this in “All the Trouble in the World”

Well, she is stupid, ugly, no experience or credentials, has money. Therefore she is a highly qualified candidate in the Democratic Party. She now only needs to go out and have sex with a lot of indiscriminate people and children if available.

She need to have someone write a book for her about why she hates America and make friencds with Megyn McCain and Rosie Odonnel.
