Chelsea Clinton Changes Tune on Running for Office: I’m ‘A Definite Maybe’ to Run

While Chelsea Clinton had voiced disinterest in running for public office in the past, the daughter of former President Bill Clinton and twice failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton now rates her chances at running for election as a “a definite maybe.”

“If my city councillor were to retire, if my congresswoman were to retire, my senators, and I thought that I could make a positive impact, then I think I would really have to ask my answer to that question,” Clinton said on Sunday, while promoting her new children’s book at the Edinburgh International Book Festival in Scotland. “For me it’s a definite no now, but it’s a definite maybe in the future because who knows what the future is going to bring.”

Amid discussing her likelihood of running for office, Clinton also noted her disdain for President Donald Trump‘s current governing style, saying, “At federal level, as much as I abhor so much of what President Trump is doing, I have a great amount of gratitude for what my congresswoman and my senators are doing to try to stop him at every point.”

She continued: “I’m outraged every day by something our president has done or said or left undone or neglected, or who he has recently bullied on Twitter or television.”
