Chelsea Clinton may run for Congress

What might be right and wrong about Chelsea Clinton running to become a Member of the U.S. House of Representatives? The news today from The Hill is that she might be considering a run to replacing an aging Congresswoman from New York.


1. Replacing a Democrat woman with a like-kind is a good idea.
2. Chelsea Clinton has an untarnished reputation.
3. She has a powerful network of supporters.

Considering the complete assessment, one must address what I have published in How to Select an American President by James A. George with James A. Rodger (c) 2017 Archway Publishing and the following two-part article about How to Select a U.S. Member of the House of Representatives:

First, evaluate her resume and compare it with the job.

Education and intelligence are her strongest assets.

"She attended public schools in Arkansas until he was elected President and the family moved to the White House, where she began attending the private Sidwell Friends School. She received an undergraduate degree at Stanford University and later earned master's degrees from University College, Oxford and Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health, and a Doctor of Philosophy in international relations from the University of Oxford in 2014."

Professional politician

"In 2003, Clinton joined the consulting firm McKinsey & Company in New York City,[23] and she went to work for Avenue Capital Group in late 2006. She served as co-chair for a fund-raising week for the Clinton Foundation, and subsequently became Vice Chair for the foundation.[37] She serves on the board of the School of American Ballet[23] and on IAC's board of directors.[46][47] 
In November 2011, NBC announced that they had hired Clinton as a special correspondent. One of her roles was reporting feature stories about "Making a Difference" for NBC Nightly News and Rock Center with Brian Williams. It was a three-month contract and allowed her to concurrently continue working for the Clinton Foundation and pursue her education.[48][49] Clinton's first appearance was on the December 12, 2011, episode of Rock Center.[50] Although she received some negative critical reviews for her work, Clinton's contract with NBC was renewed in February 2012.[51][52] Rock Center ended in May 2013, and she left the network in August 2014.[53][54] Clinton reportedly earned an annual salary of $600,000 for her work at NBC.[55] 
In September 2015, Clinton made her authorial debut with It's Your World: Get Informed, Get Inspired and Get Going!, which was published by Philomel Books. The 400-page book is aimed at middle school students (ages 10 to 14) and introduces them to a range of social issues, encouraging them to take action to make the world a better place.[56] The Today Show gave Clinton a full segment in which to discuss the book with her former colleagues at NBC.[57] The book received mixed reviews from critics, who lauded Clinton for her effort but "lament[ed] its didactic tone".[56][58][59]
Chelsea Clinton's estimated net worth is USD $15,000,000.[60]"

There will likely be a backlash to the Trump-moment in political history and electing Chelsea Clinton might be an appropriate response and reaction.

"Chelsea Clinton fuels speculation of political run 
BY AMIE PARNES - 03/15/17 06:00 AM EDT  210 
When rumors started swirling after the election that Chelsea Clinton was considering her own foray into politics, it was met with eye rolls even from staunch supporters of the family. 
“Think we can let the dust settle a bit before we start talking about another Clinton race?” one former adviser to Hillary Clinton said after the New York Post reported in November that the former first daughter was being “groomed” to run for Congress, possibly replacing 79-year-old congresswoman Nita Lowey (D-N.Y.) “It’s exhausting.”
But that skepticism is starting to fade. 
Last month, a separate report in the New York Daily News said that Clinton could potentially run for Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand’s (D-N.Y.) seat, should the senator decide to run for president in 2020."
