Chelsea Clinton open to future career in politics

"I have voted in every election that I have been qualified to vote in since I turned eighteen. I believe that engaging in the political process is part of being a good person," she said. "And I certainly believe that part of helping to build a better world is ensuring that we have political leaders who are committed to that premise. So 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 just, more equitable, more productive world? Then that would be a question I’d have to ask and answer.”

Rumors have swirled around Clinton's possible political prospects for years. She has been involved in her father's foundation and is now a contributor to NBC News.

"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," she explained to the magazine. "And also because 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.” 

Clinton will participate in both upcoming national conventions as a panel moderator.
