"I am not running for public office," Chelsea Clinton tells Variety. After her mother's loss to President Trump and with the rise of her own public persona, political pundits have been wondering if it's Chelsea Clinton's turn to try her hand at the family business, CBS News reports. Apparently not. In her interview with Variety, Clinton quashes such rumors—which she finds "rather hysterical"—and says she's "constantly surprised by the stories of me running for, fill in the blank."
