Transcript for Chelsea Clinton Suggests Political Run Possible
mind there. A big headline from a private member of the housepower family. Former first daughter, chelsea clinton, saying she's open to running for office one day. And abc's martha raddatz joins us with more on that. Good morning, martha. Reporter: Good morning, amy. When people think of chelsea clinton, they think smart, sophisticated and someone who carefully avoids attention. Well, think again. She spent most of her life in the shadow of the glaring spotlight on her parents. Remaining incredibly private, even as she grew into a confident young woman. I do believe that people who can do things should do things. Reporter: But we now know what those things might be. In a glamorous new spread in "vogue" magazine, clinton is opening up a political pandora's box. Saying for the first time ever, she would consider a run for office. If there were to be a point where it was something I felt called to do, she said, and i didn't think there was someone who was sufficiently committed to building a healthier, more just, more equitable, more productive world, then that would be a question I'd have to ask and answer. It's the one career in america that scoops up all of the things that she's good at. All of her gifts and interests. This is chelsea clinton. Reporter: She's designed to be a great elected official. Reporter: And with all of the privacy perfectly designed, as well, chelsea tells "vogue," historically, I deliberately tried to lead a private life in the public eye, she says. And now, I'm trying to lead a purposely public life. A public life inspired by her parents. One that began changing after her marriage to mark. When she got married. At the same time her grandmother, dorothy, was dying. And took it upon herself to say you're not doing enough with your life. You should embrace your legacy as a clinton. Reporter: And what about those grand babies that her mother not so secretly yearns for. I love babies. Maybe I'll have more in my life someday. Reporter: Secretary clinton may have to wait a while, says the 32-year-old chelsea. I suspect that anything her daughter decides to do is okay with secretary clinton. And I'm sure public service, no matter who form, is high on that list. By the way, "vogue" magazine HITS STANDS ON AUGUST 21st. Amy? All right, martha. Thanks so much. George, you know a little something about the clintons. Do you think she'll run? It's possible. I'll take her word. She opened the door to it. Didn't say she's definitely going to do it. I'll bet the grandkids come first. That's a good bet. We'll switch gears now.
