Don’t expect any elephants in the nursery for Chelsea Clinton. The daughter of D.C. power couple Bill and Hillary Clinton is pregnant with her first child, and where most expectant moms are trying to predict whether they’re having a boy or a girl, Chelsea’s figuring out political parties!
While at Town & Country’s Philanthropy Summit on May 28, the 34-year-old joked about whether her baby would someday vote red or blue. We’ve got Town & Country editor Jay Fielden to thank for that particular line of questioning (via Page Six) when he asked, “What if you have a Republican?” Chelsea’s response? “I would find that very hard to believe.”
We have to agree seeing as Chelsea is the offspring of two Democratic Party heavyweights. We mean, Grandpa was a two-term President on the Democratic ticket, while Grandma served as Secretary of State. Plus, she might potentially run for President on the blue side in the next election!
Still, however her baby may someday vote, Chelsea says she hopes she and husband Marc Mezvinsky “imbue our children” with the “same kind of sense” her parents gave her, and that “it’s important to have an opinion...and to be able to defend it.”
Break out your Clinton 2049 bumper stickers, people.
