Chelsea Clinton in New York Magazine

On the Newsstand: I Love Chelsea Clinton

I feel like I grew up with Chelsea Clinton. We had braces at the same time, both wore those 90s-era flowery dresses, her dad was president, I saw her once at Stanford, you know — we're practically twins. But I didn't really know her until I cracked open this week's New York magazine.

Chelsea, the long quiet, sheltered from the media, first daughter might as well be a unicorn for as much as we've gotten to know about her. Taking center stage for the first time helping her mom's campaign, Chelsea appears to be wowing audiences as a self assured, perfect blend of her mom's detail and her dad's charm.

For nearly an hour, Chelsea fielded questions and spoke in dense, well-organized paragraphs packed with detail, nuance, facts, and figures and punctuated by the occasional “y’know”—a verbal tic of her mom’s—and a soft “yeah?” indicating that she was finished.

and Bill:

Like her father, Chelsea is, in fact, a big flirt (not something her mother is known for). Approached by a tall model-handsome college jock at the University of Utah, she literally batted her eyelashes at him. “Hell-o!” she said in a Mae West tone before posing for a snapshot with him.

Touted in the article as perhaps the best hope at taking over the "Clinton Dynasty," to find out what made me really like her a lot,


When a young man in back demanded to know the Clinton campaign’s “new strategy” in view of the “crippling blow” of Ted and Caroline Kennedy’s endorsement of Obama, Chelsea shot him a level gaze. “I don’t think there is a new strategy,” she said. “My mom has been running for the last year, talking about what she thinks our challenges are and what our opportunities are, and why she thinks she’s the most well positioned to deal with our problems in America and to solve things like Social Security or combat global warming or get our economy back on track. There’s no difference today from last week or last month.”

I don't know about you, but I think Chelsea could just be the strongest Clinton on the campaign trail.

I have a lot of respect for Chelsea - she always sounds like a strong and smart person. And I really appreciate the fact she's very private inspite of her parents, and (as I know of) didn't get famous thanks to DUIs..

I like the fact you know she is helping her mom with her campaign because she truly wants to and is not some other politician kid that is used for "family" publicity shots. I appreciate her want for privacy and love seeing how confident, strong and smart she is

Chelsea's led an extraordinary life. Like the Kennedy kids, she's seen more places and met more people because of her position, and whether or not she's ever going to go for an elected office, I hope she uses that for some greater good. As to whether she's interested in politics - who she was ten years ago isn't who she is today, and who she is and what she wants today isn't necessarily going to define her future.

My brother thinks she has a good shot at the White House, but I'm not sure she's interested.

She's great. Not such a huge fan of her mom these days.

I have always sympathized with her, as I too am a girl with naturally curly hair that had to over come the style struggles of adolescents! She seems to enjoy being a private citizen, so I would be very surprised if she would want to be an elected official. I also think that you need more qualifications than being sweet and related to someone who has held an office.

Way to be late to the game NY Mag. This is what I've ALWAYS said about Chelsea.

Oh man, it made me so mad when people made all those cracks about her appearance back in the day - partly because she's not unattractive so it wasn't true, but mostly because they were picking on a teenage girl about her appearance!! Anyhow, I like how she's grown up.

I like her only because she seems mature and has never been in the press much, it's interestinghow normal she seems for such an extraordinary life.

I love Chelsea! I'm so happy to see how confident she is now. I remember when Bill was first elected, the press was brutal on her, calling her homely and things like that. She was in middle school for goodness sakes!
