For those interested in pursuing a job in public service, Hillary Clinton's daughter suggested that prospective candidates ask themselves several questions including: "Do you have a vision for what you want to do in this job" and "Do you think you’d do a better job than whomever else is there now?" She said: "I love my City Councilwoman - she's awesome. I support our mayor. I love my Congresswoman. I love our senators. I clearly do not support the president and certainly hope that he is defeated in the next election, but I don’t think I’m the best person for that job." She added: "If someone steps down or something changes, I’ll then ask and answer those questions at that time. But right now, no, I’m not running for public office."
