While some pundits are declaring the Clinton political dynasty dead, sources tell us that it is far from over. Chelsea Clinton is being groomed for the New York seat held by Rep. Nita Lowey.

Chelsea could run for the seat in NYC’s 17th Congressional District once Lowey, a respected, 79-year-old career politician with nearly 30 years in office, decides to retire, we have exclusively learned.

Lowey’s district includes parts of Rockland and Westchester counties and, conveniently, Chappaqua, the Clinton family home base.

In August, Hillary and Bill Clinton purchased a home next door to their primary residence in Chappaqua for $1.16 million, which is intended for Chelsea, her husband, Marc Mezvinsky, and their two children, Charlotte and Aidan.

While Chelsea currently lives, and is registered to vote, in Manhattan, she could easily make Chappaqua her legal residence in order to run for Lowey’s seat when it becomes vacant.

Too soon?

  1. Mr Diesel - Chelsea for Prison in 2017 (Jan 22) says:

    Oh hell no.

    She knew the foundation was doing illegal and inappropriate things years ago and didn’t do enough blow the whistle on it so that fact alone makes her unqualified to be in Congress.

    (Wait, maybe she is imminently qualified although they just indicted the Illinois Congressman (Republican) and rightly so.)

  2. Hmeyers says:

    Probably a joke.

    Serious political families don’t do House of Representatives, AFAIK.

    State-wide office, yes (Treaurer of the State of ____)
    Appointed position in the government, yes.
    Governor, yes.
    Senator, yes.

    House of Representatives? No.

    Do you really think Chelsea wants to talk to and meet the common people, even in a wealthier part of New York?

    House of Representatives is for the peasants.

    You’d never see a established family name — Romney, Bush, Clinton, Kennedy, etc. — running for it.

    • NewFormatSux says:

      W ran for Congress and lost.
      However, I agree with you. If Hillary had won the presidency, they would have installed Chelsea as a Senate candidate, and everyone would be expected to fall in line and declare how wonderful and knowledgeable Chelsea is.
      If she ran for Congress we would see the same.
      However, people who know her call her a spoiled brat. There is the Wikileaks where she is living off the Foundation and even used it for her wedding.

    • McCullough says:

      Almost every standard of political behavior has changed with this election. I wouldn’t rule it out. I mean we just elected a reality show host for President FFS.

      • Hmeyers says:

        Chelsea would not want to do a “real job”.

        Being in Congress is a real job and it pays less than half of a 45 minute Hillary Wall Street speech.

        Remember she had a job at NBC making tons of money with almost no responsibilities …

        Vanity Fair …

        “Her stint at NBC was a disaster, perhaps because it ran so contrary to her instincts. “Most of us were baffled [by the hire], because she never even spoke to the press,” says an NBC veteran. “She’d walk by with the imperial stare, looking forward, and interacted not at all.” The feeling inside NBC was that she had been hired to maintain access to and curry favor with the Clintons. When news broke that she had been getting paid $600,000—for a part-time job—NBC staffers were appalled. Most full-time correspondents were being paid far less. The big salary was predicated on the idea that she was already a star, and according to an insider, she started acting like one. Colleagues felt they couldn’t communicate with her directly. Instead, they had to go through her people. And she was hardly present in the office. “There was a joke inside the building that she was the ‘highest-paid ghost’ at NBC,” says a network source. It all might have been excused had she been any good. In the span of nearly three years, however, she filed only a handful of segments—all painfully stiff reports on global do-gooders, plus an attempted comic interview with the Geico Gecko. As the insider puts it, “NBC has made a lot of bad decisions in the last few years, but hiring Chelsea has to be very near the top.”

    Its natural and common for kiddies to follow in their parents footsteps.

    ……… why do you think I’m so……………….. agreeable?

    • Mr Diesel - Chelsea for Prison in 2017 (Jan 22) says:

      41 and 43?

      She can follow her bitch mother to jail.

  4. Ah_Yea says:

    Too soon?

    Never is too soon.

  5. Dick Wad says:

    There’s nothing quite like a (corrupt) royal Dynasty!

    Not that the Bushes don’t have a few offspring or anything.

    … And on a side note. What the hell did the Clinton’s ever DO in ARKANSAS?!!! Quite frankly, they all sound like carpet bagging criminals who will go anywhere and do anything for power.

    Not that the Bushes won’t either.

  6. Ah_Yea says:

    Another reason I wouldn’t want to see Chelsea run.

    I don’t have the feelings of disgust for her like I do for her parents,
    Yet -if she runs she will become the surrogate for all crimes Clinton.

    She will be investigated and questioned mercilessly. “What did you know and when did you know it?” At least it would be better done out of the public eye instead of the media circus.

  7. bobbo, the pragmatic existential evangelical anti-theist says:

    Ha, ha………….it will never dawn on you monkeys that Bush—Clinton —-Trump —Gore —-Pelosi —- Ryan —- etc all come from, aspire to, have become members of the Ruling Class. All Politics, all Corporate Entwined, all corrupt to those ends. “Everyone does it, so I have to play the Game.” But Bernie did not play the game….. and he got rigged out. Wasn’t a Kennedy recently testing the waters????

    ……… and yet, you look around the world, at History, and you seek poor academics with degrees in Philosophy are some of the worst genocidal maniacs ever. Maybe worshipping the Dollar is not the worst thing ever in our “leaders.”

    Maybe when EVERY choice actually sucks, the Universe is telling us something?

    • Hmeyers says:

      Ryan? He drove an Oscar Meyer Weinermobile until elected to Congress.

      • bobbo, the pragmatic existential evangelical anti-theist says:

        I agree the correlation is not 100%. Thats why I included “have become members” just as if they were born too rich.

      • MikeN says:

        Obama was a little like that but by the time he ran for president he was talking about the price of arugula.

        • Hmeyers says:

          Obama when he first ran for office seemed awesome — intellectual, progressive but not stupid about it, knowledgable about history.

          His speech about the transition to Trump reminded me of that Obama:

          “Good afternoon, everybody. Yesterday, before votes were tallied, I shot a video that some of you may have seen in which I said to the American people, regardless of which side you were on in the election, regardless of whether your candidate won or lost, the sun would come up in the morning.

          And that is one bit of prognosticating that actually came true. The sun is up. And I know everybody had a long night. I did as well. I had a chance to talk to President-elect Trump last night about 3:30 in the morning, I think it was, to congratulate him on winning the election and I had a chance to invite him to come to the White House tomorrow to talk about making sure that there is a successful transition between our presidencies.

          Now, it is no secret that the president-elect and I have some pretty significant differences. But remember, eight years ago President Bush and I had some pretty significant differences. But President Bush’s team could not have been more professional or more gracious in making sure we had a smooth transition so that we could hit the ground running.”

    The Clinton Foundation has issued a statement in response to the election results.
    ……………………NO REFUNDS!……………………..

    • Hmeyers says:

      I wonder how Saudi Arabia and the other countries feel at this point.

      Or the wealthy corporations that thought they were buying access.

      It’s beating a dead horse at this point, but I liked it better when the Democratic candidates were beholden to the blue-collar unions.

      • NewFormatSux says:

        The union bosses have become part of the problem. They go out and endorse amnesty and whatever else the party leaders want.

  10. Geoworker says:

    She looks like she’s casting a spell…..on congress?

  11. Adam says:

    She shouldn’t be allowed to hold as much as a village board seat. Everything needs to be done to end the Clinton dynasty.

  12. Egon Ruuda says:

    Put her in jail instead. America does not need nobility.

  13. This will all end with crying

  14. Required says:

    Proof that the Clintons are the herpes of politics. You can never fully get rid of them.
