NEW YORK (AFP) ― Just as speculation rises over Hillary Clinton’s presidential ambitions, daughter Chelsea hinted Monday that she too could enter politics.

With ex-president Bill Clinton as her father and the former secretary of state and would-be first female president as mother, Chelsea has politics in her blood.

So far, the 33-year-old has kept out of the family business. However, a foray into television journalism and frequent appearances on conference stages are rapidly increasing her prominence.

Asked by NBC television if she would consider a political future, Chelsea Clinton said: “Right now I’m grateful to live in a city, a state and a country where I strongly support my mayor, my governor, my president and my senators and my representative.”

But, she added: “If at some point that weren’t true and I thought I could make a meaningful and measurably greater impact, I’d have to ask and answer that question.”

The hint adds a new twist to the Clinton saga. This week media attention zeroed in on Hillary Clinton who is in the midst of a series of public speaking appearances.

Polls show she would have heavy support for a second presidential run in 2016, after being defeated in the Democratic primary by Barack Obama in 2008.

Chelsea said: “I very much want her to make the right choice for herself and I know that will be (the) right choice for our country and I’ll support her in whatever she chooses to do.”
