Chelsea Clinton and her dad, former President Bill Clinton, are featured in Glamour's November issue, sharing insights about their relationship, their work, and the family's plans for the future — including Hillary's possible presidential run. After several years out of the political spotlight, Chelsea is now joining the family business as vice chair of the new Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation, originally called the William J. Clinton Foundation. As she adopts a new role professionally, she's also preparing for a change in her personal life, saying that she and her husband, Marc Mezvinsky, are planning to expand their family soon. Chelsea and her dad also opened up about the family dynamics, finding balance, and past public scrutiny, including how they handled bad press when Chelsea was young and Bill was running for governor. Take a look at some of the pair's best quotes, then head over to Glamour for the full story:
- On starting a family: "We sat down and said, 'Here's what we want to do.' The first thing on the list was simple: We want, God willing, to start a family. So we decided we were going to make 2014 the Year of the Baby. And please, call my mother and tell her that. She asks us about it every single day."
- On Hillary 2016: "I'll support my mother in whatever she does. Always."
- On media scrutiny: "When people say crazy stuff about me or my family, I don't take it seriously. Someone didn't like what I wore? I don't care about that. But there's also criticism that I take seriously — if the foundation wasn't represented in the way that it should be? That you have to learn from."
- On Bill and Hillary as parents: "My parents were definitely on the incentive side of parenting. Like, they told me that my father had learned to read when he was three. So, of course, I thought I had to too. The first thing I learned to read was the newspaper. I had these word flash cards — this is so nerdy — and we would practice every day. When I learned 500 words, my parents gave me a little trophy. When I learned 1,500 words, I got another one."
