Chelsea Clinton in Vogue: Mulling Political Future, Looking Beautiful

by at . Comments

Chelsea Clinton is featured in the new issue of Vogue magazine.

In it, she muses that like her famous parents - Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and former President Bill Clinton - she may seek office too one day.

"Before my mom's campaign I would have said no," Chelsea said.

However, "If there were to be a point where it was something I felt called to do and I didn't think there was someone who was sufficiently committed to building a healthier, more equitable, more just, more productive world?"

"Then that would be a question I'd have to ask and answer."

Clinton, 32, who married investment banker Marc Mezvinsky in 2010, said her celebrity is "something I could continue to ignore or it was something I could try to use to highlight causes that I really cared about," she told Vogue.

"I believe that there are many ways for each of us to play our part. For a very long time that's what my mom did. And then she went into elected public life. Her life is a testament to the principle that there are many ways to serve."

"Historically I deliberately tried to lead a private life in the public eye," she said. "And now I am trying to lead a purposefully public life."

People have pondered Chelsea's political future for her since ... forever.

"It was something I had thought a lot about because people have been asking me that my whole life," she said. "Even during my father's 1984 gubernatorial campaign, it was, 'Do you want to grow up and be governor one day?' No. I am four."
