Great news: Chelsea Clinton open to running for office someday

posted at 5:21 pm on April 8, 2013 by Allahpundit

George H.W. vs. Bill was Bush/Clinton I. Jeb vs. Hillary could be Bush/Clinton II. And if we’re very lucky, George P. will win his race for Texas land commissioner and Chelsea will ease into public service with a Senate seat in New York or something and we’ll be on track for Bush/Clinton III circa 2032.

Two points about this. One: It’s proof of how insatiable the media’s appetite for dynastic politics is (especially Democratic dynasties) that this is biggish news today even though she said the same thing six months ago. You get the feeling that Chelsea could go on making rote “maybe someday” statements every year for the next quarter-century and the media will cover every last one with the same “is she finally ready?” tone of breathless inevitability. That’s what it means to be a golden-child scion of the House of Clinton. If you doubt it, remember how insane the coverage was of Caroline Kennedy possibly being appointed to fill Hillary’s vacant Senate seat in 2008. (Hillary’s seat used to be RFK’s seat so Caroline’s appointment would have brought two dynastic storylines together.) Forty-five years after JFK’s death, despite the fact that she had never sought office before, the possibility that America might be gifted with Senator Caroline was the biggest story in politics. Instead, she’s likely to end up as our next ambassador to Japan even though East Asia is the hottest geopolitical spot on the planet right now and she has no diplomatic experience. There’s no job so difficult or delicate that the right pedigree can’t qualify you for it. In fact, the best reminder of that is the interview below: Chelsea normally shies away from TV chitchat but NBC is of course her employer, and was willing to put her on in primetime over reporters who’d spent years working for a shot like that. They wanted access to the Clintons and were willing to give her a “journalism” job to get it. No talent required.

Two: It feels odd claiming that America’s dynastic tendencies are getting worse when two of the first six presidents were father and son, but there’s no way to avoid that feeling given the proliferation of ambitious Bushes and Clintons on top of the endless proliferation of ambitious Kennedys. Is it getting worse, political historians, or is this one of those eternal laments where every generation sees recent deterioration in what’s actually an evergreen problem? (The classic example is hand-wringing about negative ads even though the Founding Fathers were often vicious in their own campaigns.) I can see the arguments both ways. On the one hand, how can dynastic politics be getting worse when Obama defeated the Clinton machine and then surfed on anti-Bush sentiment to become the first black president? On the other hand, what if we end up with Jeb versus Hillary in 2016? And what if Michelle Obama eventually runs for something? You would think, in an age of ubiquitous media, it’d be easier for a candidate to compete with, and defeat, dynasties by building a “brand” quickly. (Again, see Obama.) But maybe Obama’s a singular phenomenon; maybe inescapable media actually makes things easier for dynasties most of the time by providing them with more avenues to reach voters and opportunities to build a brand that’s more complex than what politicians of earlier generations could achieve. (See, e.g., the non-news about Chelsea today. Note too that the executive director of the new pro-Hillary PAC refers to her explicitly as a “brand.”) I’m tempted to say that Ross Douthat was right yesterday that the insularity and incestuousness of America’s elite has also gotten worse, which means an easier path for children of political privilege to navigate the money and relationships needed to grasp power, but I have no number for you on that. Politics has always been a rich/famous man’s game, by and large; whether it’s more of one today than in the last few centuries is impossible to know without a deeper dive into the data.

What did the headline say the yesterday or the other day? If the news talks about the looks of a female candidate, it lowers her chances of winning?

Woof!

damn, I know its superficial, but chelsea really didn’t get either of her parents looks

I guess she’ll have to ask Kermit if he doesn’t mind being “First Man” in the White House…

If her last name weren’t Clinton she could have a job at McDonalds as long as she had two years experience, a Bachelor’s degree and a positive attitude. But yes, because her name is Clinton let’s put her in public office.

msmveritas on April 8, 2013 at 5:29 PM

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

What exactly does a brainless prop for the faux Clinton marriage bring to the table that could make a meaningful impact? Every job she’s had is due to daddy and mommy not skill, ability, smarts, or even hard work. There are high school students that do better interviews. Stay at home Chelsea, pop out a few kids, and leave the world of politics to ruthless people like your parents.

If she runs she may win because of a biased media, potential Democratic primary opponents being threatened and bullied out of running against her, and a bunch of blue state drones lining up to vote for their entitlements. Otherwise she has no business in politics or any other public profession.

In another life without the parents she has, she’d be that clerk who rarely makes eye contact that nobody wants to get as their secret Santa recipient.

Oh, great. Then we’ll be treated to media lecture after media lecture about how “sexist” it is, how “inappropriate” it is, to point out how butt ugly this woman is. But Chris Christie? Yeah. He’s a fatty. Say it all you want. Jimmy Fallon basically calls Michelle Bachmann a “lyin’ ass bitch” to her face — but DON’T YOU DARE point out that Chelsea Clinton dipped a little too deeply into the ugly side of the gene pool. DON’T YOU DARE! Why, that would be inappropriate! Sexist!

Yup. Conservatives hate it when you lie to them; liberals go nuts when you tell them the truth.

So, goody. Years and years of watching the media tip-toe around the second coming of Madeline Half-bright’s face — waiting anxiously to pounce on anyone who dares utter what EVERYONE is thinking — including them.

Ugly and dumb. Zero resume. She’ll make a perfect democrat candidate.

MikeknaJ on April 8, 2013 at 5:41 PM

Feel free to jump in there and disagree.

Fact of the matter, looks matter when you are in the public eye. Or even on the peripherary. Remember how the WaPo called John Roberts’ kids “too white” during his confirmation hearings? Remember how Sarah Palin was attacked for what she wore on the campaign trail? Michelle Bachmann?

So if you are overly sensitive to criticism of the dog-faced moron who is only on television because of her last name, so be it. Defend Rover all you want. That won’t make the criticism any less true.

Happy Nomad on April 8, 2013 at 5:47 PM

Like you said this isn’t a new phenomenon. This also isn’t simply limited to politics. The sports world sees this in the coaching world all the time. For a recent example see the University of Minnesota’s hiring of 30-year old Rich Pitino. He is the youngest basketball coach at Minnesota since 1898, and I’m sure it has nothing to do with his dad making it to the Final Four (and now coaching in the finals tonight). Legacy matters in the United States. Like it or not, it isn’t changing anytime soon.

She is the offspring of two ruthless, treacherous, amoral pieces of crap, and she has already demonstrated the same traits. Mocking her is the kindest thing I have for her.

Dems (c. 2010): Chris Christie is too fat to be POTUS! He’d never win! Looks matter!

BobMbx on April 8, 2013 at 6:27 PM

Bill first got Chelsea a job with a huge hedge-fund donor for a couple years. Then Bill got her a job at McKinsey and Company, the top management consulting group in the world. That didn’t last long either. Then NBC gave her that on-air gig. Again, she failed. She has a record of failure, just like her mother, so, in the liberal media’s eyes, she thus is perfectly qualified to be a politician. If she was a Bush daughter or the daughter of some non-famous people, nobody would even know of care about her.

Wow. Her mom was the first First Lady to come under criminal investigation, and if you recall took “full responsibility” for Benghazi. Her dad, among other things, perjured himself, suborned witnesses, settled a rape charge for $875,000 and was impeached as president. And these people are national heroes.

How did such two such average, at best, looking people produce such a horse-faced daughter?

I hope she fails in every way possible.

This dumb tw#t was sent by her dumb, sleazy, rich parents to Sidwell Friends, Stanford, Oxford, and Columbia? Guess she was too busy boning random strangers, and not enough time studying.

Guess she got over her reluctance to accept anti-Americanism:

“Every day I encounter some sort of anti-American feeling. Over the summer, I thought I would seek out non-Americans as friends, just for diversity’s sake. Now I find that I want to be around Americans “

She should just do a three-way lesbo porn scene with Fluke and Judd. That’s all she’s good for. (That is, if she can stand being the ugliest of the bunch.)

WhatSlushfund on April 8, 2013 at 7:04 PM

Her parents and the media have been alarmingly silent on her, her views, her political stances and her goals.

Chelsea will probably do well. Think of all the ugly liberal women in congress: Boxer, Feinstein, Mikulski, Murkowski, Stabenow, DiLauro, McCaskill, Wasserman Schultz, Collins, Snowe, Klobuchar, Murray, Chelsea’s mom … the list goes on.

bw222 on April 8, 2013 at 7:51 PM

Seems a few key bits were left out, to wit:

“If at some point…I thought I could make a meaningful and measurably greater impact, and of course I’d first have to um, like, um, accomplish something in life, which I pretty much haven’t done yet despite having every single advantage its possible for a modern liberal princess to have, you know, I’d have to ask and answer that question.”

Sacramento on April 8, 2013 at 8:17 PM

I believe Billy Boy is sterile, probably from some STD caught decades ago

*I* believe anyone who loved to nail everything he could get to hold still long enough as much as Bill, if he had even a quarter of a brain, would have gotten snipped in his early 20s. If only to know there weren’t literally thousands of potential paternity suits out there. Think about it – an alley cat like him should have women suing him for support every day. There aren’t any. He’s a lot of things, but he’s not a moron.

Which means… Bill has known from day one that Chelsea wasn’t his. He played along because he decided it was better politically that way.

Dirty Creature on April 8, 2013 at 8:19 PM

No talent required.

Chelsea Clinton went to Stanford, Oxford and Columbia, and worked at McKinsey and Avenue Capital. The suggestion that she was under qualified to work at NBC is somewhat curious.

righty45 on April 8, 2013 at 8:37 PM

calling wading thru lefty institutions when you have a pedigree like hers “success” or an “accomplishment” rises to the chortle level.

worthless her and you.

tom daschle concerned on April 8, 2013 at 8:41 PM

tom daschle concerned,

Are McKinsey and Avenue Capital “lefty institutions”? Also, can you please name what you would consider to be a strong academic institution? Can you then compare that institution to Stanford and Columbia by objective measures and explain why it is superior…without rising to the “chortle level”?

Thanks in advance!

I’ve always felt sorry for Chelsea. The deck was definitely stacked against her, parent-wise.

And you know–if she wanted it, the political world would be hers. The fact that she hasn’t latched onto the fame and power and thoroughly exploited it in typical Clinton fashion (or, alternately, become a total wreck of a human being) makes me think that she could very well be a decent person just doing her best to live life (being liberal was pretty much unavoidable, given her parents). (She might also lack the talent for it–but if that is the only thing holding her back, the media is more than capable of making up for it…and considering the way so-called “feminists” swoon for the alleged rapist who is her father, I feel pretty sure the Dems would be willing to completely overlook–or even champion–that flaw. So I think it must be her preference.)

I fully acknowledge that I could be wrong and that she could be the most heartless, evil Clinton yet. But still…if anybody should be able to blame her parents for her problems, Chelsea is the gal.

She’s probably the dumbest Clinton … and given what an idiot Shrillary “RESET OVERCHARGED … ‘Did we get the translation right? We worked so hard on it.’”, “at this point, what difference does it make?!!” Clinton is, that ain’t no mean feat. BJ Clinton, at least, has the skills of a con-man.

Columbia graduated Barky and he’s only got an IQ of 84, the mathematical sophistication of a slow 8th grader and the English skills of dumb high school freshman. Columbia is a joke. A total joke.

As to McKinsey and Avenue, I’d love to see what the mini-Clinton actually did for them. I’d venture that they didn’t let her touch anything of actual value. She was there for show (and access to BJ and Shrillary) and nothing else.

Tom daschle concerned,

Sorry if you’re upset. It’s just bothersome when worthless slugs like you insult people who have accomplished more in 30 years than you will in a lifetime, simply because you disagree with their parents’ politics. Have a good night.

What has Chelsea Clinton actually accomplished? Can you name one specific accomplishment? Just one?

ThePrimordialOrderedPair on April 8, 2013 at 9:08 PM

I named at least 5 in my first post.

She certainly got her mother’s looks…. :(

“Chelsea Clinton went to Stanford, Oxford and Columbia, and worked at McKinsey and Avenue Capital.”

LOL. Those aren’t accomplishments. They’re entrees she got because people wanted to play nice with BJ and Shrillary. Do you know what an “accomplishment” is?

What has she actually done? Just one thing of even mediocre value … I take it that you believe she has some sort of skill. What is that skill? Name one thing she is even half-good at.

I’ll bet you were impressed with momma Shrillary’s translation abilities and diplomatic skills, too. LOL. You lefties are really too funny. I wish you’d be funny in a country outside of mine, but you all are a laugh riot with your stupidity.

Primordial,

Can you explain why graduating from top universities and working at high-pressure, competitive jobs are not “accomplishments”? Because it sounds like the only reason you think they’re not accomplishments is because you dislike the Clintons. Which frankly, isn’t that great a reason.

righty45 on April 8, 2013 at 9:30 PM

–I went to Washington university and Northwestern, I live in a gated community, I drive a Mercedes Benz, I work at a fortune 100 company.

5 accomplishments!!!!

tom daschle concerned on April 8, 2013 at 9:32 PM

Wow Tom, looks like Chelsea beats you on all 5 counts! Too bad.

righty45 on April 8, 2013 at 9:36 PM

–and there you are jimbo3…same olde reprobate being a jackass. won’t be too long before you instruct someone to kill themselves or otherwise get the boot.

You godless stalinists can’t hide your true identities forever.
