    qualifications:

    she has a degrees in history, international relations and public health
    special correspondent for NBC
    worked for a consulting firm
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    Sounds like a good start for a run at local city council. Maybe state rep using her name recognition to get there.

    I'm sure Chelsea could identify with voters *sarcasm*.

    I don't think everybody should be poor in order to be president but it helps to spend at least part of life realizing what everybody else deals with on a daily basis.

    not saying she couldn't be a good politician, but when your best qualification is "name recognition" .....

    but I agree start out small at the local level and see how she does

    i admit that i like her as a person. i'd have to see her platform before getting behind anything she does politically, however. i mean, ****, if Jenna Bush jumped in the ring saying she would promote UHC and an end to interventionism, i'd vote for her and encourage others to do so. the issues are everything; the only thing that matters about the politician is whether he or she can move the issue effectively.

    Chelsea possibly hinting on running for some sort of office sometime. Might wanna keep an eye on her, she might be running sometime and has her options and support networks definitely open.
    Oh boy! Just what America needs: More Clintons, More Kennedys, More Bushes, More Pauls, More political families. Three hundred million people and the United States can't find anyone other than political spawn of the rich and powerful political spawn.

    "They will lead us. They are gifted, talented, they know things and do things we could never possibly know or do for ourselves. They are worthy in ways that we cannot hope to be. God has surely directed them to rule over us."

    Embarrassing that anyone would even take something like this seriously

    Yeah, it's an obvious floating of the trial balloon.

    Eh, a bit like being a child of a doctor, a lawyer, a plumber, a cop, a soldier and so on. It's not a qualification, but it's not particularly surprising that she'd pursue that vocation or is more likely to achieve it than others because of growing up around that lifestyle.

    Dynasties are a fact of life in any walk of life.
