While rumors continue to fly about whether Chelsea Clinton will run for office, she's dispelling speculation her mother, Hillary, will attempt another political campaign. During an appearance on CBS This Morning on April 4, Clinton told cohost Charlie Rose that she doesn't think her mother will run again following her unexpected defeat in November's presidential election.
"I have no idea. I don't think so," Clinton said when asked whether the former secretary of state had future plans for public office. "I think right now she's focused on her book. She's focused - thankfully - on her grandchildren. She's focused on what she can do to help support work she's been engaged in for longer than I've been alive around children, around women, around families."
The former first daughter has denied repeatedly that she will run for office. In this interview, she echoed a sentiment she shared with Variety earlier in March - but with a notable caveat.
"I'm definitely not the right person to run to defeat [President Trump] in 2020. Right now, the answer is no, but I think we all need to be asking ourselves that question periodically," Clinton said.
A key phrase does stand out, however: "right now" suggests there is a possibility Clinton would run in the future - she's just not there yet.
