‘The View’ pushes Hil­lary-Chelsea ticket

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS - — Dou­glas Ernst

The ladies of ABC’s “The View” have a unique idea for the Demo­cratic Party’s 2020 pres­i­den­tial elec­tion ticket: Hil­lary Clin­ton and her daugh­ter Chelsea.

Whoopi Gold­berg, Joy Be­har and their co-hosts sat down Wed­nes­day with Chelsea Clin­ton to dis­cuss her new book, “She Per­sisted: 13 Amer­i­can Women Who Changed the World.” The talk cov­ered ways the Clin­ton fam­ily dealt with Pres­i­dent Trump’s Elec­tion Day vic­tory be­fore broach­ing the sub­ject of her fu­ture po­lit­i­cal am­bi­tions.

“You said you’re not in­ter­ested in run­ning for po­lit­i­cal of­fice, but your po­lit­i­cal tweets do give peo­ple hope,” co-host Sara Haines said while hold­ing up a “Clin­ton-Clin­ton 2020” bumper sticker. “Is there any­thing that would change your mind?”

The au­di­ence burst into ap­plause and cheers as “Clin­ton-Clin­ton 2020” also ap­peared on a gi­ant tele­vi­sion screen.

“As I’ve said be­fore, I don’t think be­ing a cit­i­zen is some­thing that just hap­pens on Elec­tion Day,” a non-com­mit­tal Ms. Clin­ton said. “I think reg­is­ter­ing to vote, show­ing up to vote is hugely im­por­tant. I also think stand­ing up for what we be­lieve, say­ing what we be­lieve, say­ing what we’re both for and against, stand­ing in op­po­si­tion to and in af­fir­ma­tion of is hugely im­por­tant.”
