The political powerhouse parents of Chelsea Clinton are clearly aglow these days as their daughter balances her first pregnancy with finishing up the doctorate she received on Saturday from Oxford University.
Chelsea’s hubby Mark Mezvinsky, Bill and Hillary all came together to watch Chelsea snag her doctorate in international relations from the same university where her father was a Rhodes scholar in the late-1960s.

The Clintons now have Chelsea’s first baby to look forward to in the fall. She just went public with the news last month, all the while increasing her appearances as an NBC News correspondent and intensifying her role as vice-chairman of the family’s Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation. During her time working with the foundation, she’s tackled global initiatives concerning AIDS, childhood obesity and diarrhea. Whew.
In keeping, according to the Christian Science Monitor, Clinton’s doctoral dissertation probed how different government systems tackled global health issues.
Apparently, juggling all this is what life’s always been about for Chelsea Clinton. Her roommate at Oxford, Jen Lee Kos, told People, “Chelsea’s a machine. She’s super-efficient.”
Former President Bill Clinton told Jimmy Kimmel recently that upon receiving her doctorate, his daughter, at just 34, will have as many degrees as her parents have combined.
“When she was younger,” he said, “the way all kids are, she thought she knew more than I did about everything. But alas, in my dotage, it turned out to be true.”
Also super-efficient these days: Hillary Rodham Clinton. After just finishing up a notable turn as Secretary of State, Hillary is currently seen as the Democratic front-runner for the 2016 presidential race.
This has led many to wonder whether Chelsea Clinton is also positioning herself to enter the political realm. She’s already racked up a considerable amount of applicable experience.
In a recent Inquisitr report, she sounds as though she’s only waiting for the perfect entrance:
“I live in a city and a state and a country where I support my elected representatives. If at some point that weren’t the case, and I didn’t support my mayor or my city councilwoman or my congresswoman or either of my senators–and I’m lucky to live in a state where I have lots of women representing me, you know–maybe then I’d have to ask and answer the question for myself, and come to a different answer.”
