The Clintons are planning a bright new future for the next generation of their dynasty, Chelsea.
She told an audience this week that she hates the president so much that she’s “a definite maybe” to run for office – maybe even for president – as early as 2020.
“I abhor so much of what President Trump is doing,” she told attendees at the Edinburgh International Book Festival.
She’s “outraged every day by something our president has done or said or left undone or neglected,” she rambled.
That’s a quick flip-flop, even by Clinton standards.
She told Variety magazine, “I am not running for office” last March. A month later, she told CBS News,”Right now, the answer is no, but I think we all need to be asking ourselves that question periodically.”
Chelsea stepped up and asked herself that question again this week.
“I think my family…is being really well represented” by their elected officials, Chelsea droned on. “But if that were to change – 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.”

She talked about running for Congress in Chappaqua, New York. Hillary shoved Congresswoman Nita Lowey, who turned 81 this summer, out of the way so she could run from Senate from New York in 2000. But Lowey isn’t backing down for the littlest Clinton.
Running for that seat would be typical Clinton: She doesn’t even live in that district.
The congresswoman who represents Chelsea’s posh part of New York City, Carolyn Maloney, isn’t retiring, either.
Chelsea has also mused about running for Senate in New York, if Kirsten Gillibrand campaigns for president in two years.
But if not, that shuts the Clintons out of national office, so Chelsea’s setting her sites a little lower – possibly for New York City council.
Then again, she doesn’t exactly have her family’s political chops. Her father, who lived a hardscramble childhood, won 5 elections to be governor of Arkansas. Her mother served 7 years in the Senate (without doing much of anything), then served as secretary of state.
The only thing Chelsea has ever served is spinach pancakes to her poor kids.

Chelsea’s main job has been vice chair of the crooked Clinton Foundation.
NBC News gave her a $600,000 sweetheart deal to work as a “special correspondent,” although Chelsea has no journalistic experience. She also worked at a $12 billion hedge fund.
But despite not holding a real job most of her life, her family connections allowed her to rack up an estimated net worth of $15 million.
Now Chelsea, who was born into the elite life, thinks the world owes her power to go with her wealth.

The American people are tired of political dynasties, especially the Clinton family – even at the Clinton News Network, CNN.
“No one — and I mean no one — was waiting with bated breath for (Chelsea) Clinton to make a go or no-go decision about running for president,” said CNN political analyst and editor Chris Cillizza. “No one thinks president would be the right first office for her to run for.”
“The fact that Chelsea even had the gall to rule out “a presidential bid may be a telling window into where her ambitions (and self-regard) ultimately lie,” he said.
The Clinton family’s inner circle wants Chelsea to rethink running… for anything.

“Even if it’s a year or two or three from now, I still don’t think the timing would be right,” said one former aide to Hillary’s 2016 presidential campaign. “I know that’s not fair to her, but nothing feels right about it. It feels too forced.”
Conservative commentator Mark Steyn made a tongue-in-cheek endorsement of Chelsea on Fox News this week.
“25 years of the Clintons isn’t enough,” Steyn joked on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News show this week.
“I dream, Tucker, that one day” Jeb Bush’s son “George P. Bush will marry Chelsea, and unite forever the House of Clinton-Bush.”

Joking aside, political analysts agree that Chelsea is a shoo-in to run for higher office at some point.
“For me it’s a definite ‘no’ now,” in 2018, “but it’s a definite ‘maybe’ in the future because who knows what the future is going to bring?” Chelsea said this week.
The only question is how soon she joins the other family business. “If neither Lowey nor Maloney retire before the 2018 election, Clinton is likely to sit out one more election,” Cillizza said. “But she won’t sit on those sidelines forever.”
For once, CNN isn’t reporting fake news.
