Hillary Clinton’s loss in the presidential election against Donald Trump doesn’t mean the Clinton dynasty is surrendering.
They have a whole new generation of offspring to groom for future positions within the American governmental hierarchy. It’s almost like dealing with a hydra: you cut one head off and two more spring up.
If Bill and Hillary have their way, Chelsea will be the next Clinton in a seat of power. It may only be a Senate spot, but it’s a spot nonetheless.
From the New York Post:
While some pundits are declaring the Clinton political dynasty dead, sources tell us that it is far from over. Chelsea Clinton is being groomed for the New York seat held by Rep. Nita Lowey.
Chelsea could run for the seat in NYC’s 17th Congressional District once Lowey, a respected, 79-year-old career politician with nearly 30 years in office, decides to retire, we have exclusively learned.
Lowey’s district includes parts of Rockland and Westchester counties and, conveniently, Chappaqua, the Clinton family home base.
In August, Hillary and Bill Clinton purchased a home next door to their primary residence in Chappaqua for $1.16 million, which is intended for Chelsea, her husband, Marc Mezvinsky and their two children, Charlotte and Aidan.
While Chelsea currently lives, and is registered to vote, in Manhattan, she could easily make Chappaqua her legal residence to run for Lowey’s seat when it becomes vacant.
