Chelsea Clinton's Electoral Ambitions
By Anne E. Kornblut
DES MOINES -- Chelsea Clinton has joined her mother on the campaign trail for several weeks now, always without saying a word to the crowds or to the throng of press. She turned down a 9-year-old youth reporter requesting an interview the other day, saying it is her ironclad policy not to talk to the press.
But on the rope-line, and in small settings, the 27-year-old once and possibly future First Daughter has charmed voters and supporters, signing autographs and requesting votes for her mother. During a stop at the Clinton Polk County field office on Wednesday, Chelsea Clinton got a familiar question (although a somewhat odd one for someone so reluctant to talk): Would she ever run for office herself?
"Everyone keeps asking if I have political aspirations, and I keep saying," Chelsea said, drawing her hands together and pointing toward her mother, "To get her elected."
