Chelsea Clinton embraced her 'political birthright,' in the latest issue of Vogue to follow the footsteps of her father former President Bill Clinton, and mother, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.

In interview the 32 year-old revealed what would convince her to run for office "If there were to be a point where it was something I felt called to do 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," spoken like a true politician.

Chelsea earned a master's in public health from Columbia, afterwards becoming an assistant vice provost for the Global Network Univeristy, in New York University.  Currently the former first daughter is  teaching graduate classes at Columbia and pursuing a Ph.D. in international relations from Oxford. She is also a special correspondent for NBC News, and works with the Clinton Foundation and Clinton Global Initiative.

Chelsea admitted that she had no interest in politics, until her mother ran for the U.S. Senate in 2000, "not because it was something I had thought a lot about, but because people have been asking me that my whole life," she said.

She currently serves on the board of the School of American Ballet, Clinton Health Access Initiative, Clinton Foundation, Clinton Global Initiative, Common Sense Media, Shakespeare Theatre Company, Weill Cornell Medical College and IAC/InterActiveCorp.
