Yesterday, it was announced Clinton was cashing in on the Elizabeth Warren kerfuffle by authoring a new children’s book.
The Daily Mail reported:
Chelsea Clinton will be releasing her first children’s book it was announced on Thursday, with the former first daughter penning a collection of stories about remarkable American women.
‘She Persisted’ will hit bookshelves this May, and tell the true life tales of 13 women ‘who never took no for an answer.’
The collection of stories was inspired by Elizabeth Warren according to a release sent out by publisher Penguin Young Readers, and as evidenced by Chelsea’s decision to use the Massachusetts senator’s rally cry for the title of the book.
There is also speculation Clinton will run for office in the future, either for Congress or the New York City council.
