Hillary Clinton hasn’t decided whether or not she’ll run for president in 2016, but before she does, her daughter Chelsea says she needs to take a breather.

 

“I am very strongly exercising my prerogative as a daughter to make sure my mom has this year to rest and reflect,” Chelsea Clinton said Thursday at Fortune’s Most Powerful Women Summit in Washington, D.C.

As to whether or not the former secretary of state will actually run, Chelsea Clinton said she doesn’t know, The Hill reports.

“I don’t know, is the honest answer,” she said, adding that “people have been asking that question for as long as I can remember.”

Chelsea wants Hillary to rest; America wants the press to play fair with her. 

  She got hit with a ton of bricks as First Lady.   There's nothing wrong with a progressive, informed, knowledgable First Lady, regardless of her role in taking down Nixon.  There's also nothing wrong with a progressive, informed, knowledgable First Man.

" prerogative as a daughter to make sure my mom has this year to rest and reflect,"  Well lets hope there aren't prerogatives Chelsea feels she can exercise to make sure her mom does things once/if elected.

@whylee77 @kathy  Chelsea's comment sounds demeaning to Hillary.  I doubt she needs her daughter protecting her or telling her what to do, and I also doubt she needs her daughter telling the media about it.
