North West, are you listening? Former (and perhaps future) first daughter Chelsea Clinton weighed in on Kanye West's recent announcement that he's planning to run for president in 2020. In case you forgot, the rapper dropped the news at the end of his MTV VMAs acceptance speech last month, and it wasn't long before people started imagining the very real possibility of a Kanye West and Kim Kardashian-run White House.

Chelsea talked about the #Kanye2020 news during a sit-down with MTV News while discussing the Clinton Foundation's No Ceilings project this week; when asked if she thought Kanye would really go through with his political run, she said, "I definitely think who runs for office is really important," adding, "Even if him just saying that helps sparks a little boy or a little girl who was watching the VMAs to think, 'Oh, wow! Maybe I should do that,' that's awesome." She also went on to reveal whether or not she'd vote for the rapper — interestingly enough, if Hillary Clinton wins her current White House campaign and decides to run for reelection, she could be up against Kanye. Let that soak in, then watch Chelsea's interview above now.
