Chelsea Clinton is in no hurry to get into politics

Chelsea Clinton is in no hurry to get into politics”

Chelsea Clinton is following in mom Hillary Clinton's footsteps - but that doesn't necessarily mean she'll be running for public office.

Candice E. Jackson, who aided Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign by highlighting Hillary Clinton's role in defending a man accused of raping a 12-year-old girl, has been tapped for a key civil rights position at the Education Department, according to her alma mater. President Clinton? For now, Chelsea Clinton says her only plan is to burnish her profile as an author of children's books.

'No. No, no, no, ' Clinton said, when Gayle King asked if she was eyeing a foray into politics.

The former first daughter was also asked what she thinks about the investigation into Russian efforts to meddle in the 2016 US election. "But I do think it's important that we be talking about all the different ways that it is possible to engage in the world".

A report from Pepperdine University's law school, from which Jackson earned a degree in 2002, said Jackson will serve as acting assistant secretary for civil rights. A Quinnipiac poll released in January showed that, should she decide to run as an independent against incumbent Bill de Blasio, she would likely win the election.

Clinton said that to run for office one needed to be confident he or she was the best person for the job.

"No, no, no", Clinton said, noting that she's pleased with her state and local public officials in New York City.

Clinton also left the door open to running for office during her interview with Variety.

Clinton tells "CBS This Morning" of Trump: "I'm definitely not the right person to defeat him in 2020". "So right now, the answer is no".

Chelsea Clinton is putting questions about her political ambitions to bed, for now.

"I think to run for public office, though, a few things have to be true", she said.

"I'm just really grateful to have more time with her now than I've had in a long time", she said.
