(Newser) – Bill Clinton hasn't given up hope of a Clinton woman getting into the White House—but it may be his daughter rather than his wife, ABC reports. Clinton says he would never have thought Chelsea would consider running for office—until she proved a natural on the campaign trail this year. Clinton calls his daughter's emergence the second-best thing of the campaign, after his wife's amazing endurance.

"It all changed after Iowa. She realized her mother lost Iowa 100% because of younger voters," the former president told People. She was upset, bawled, went to her employer and said, 'Look, you got to let me go or give me an indefinite leave of absence. I'm not letting my mother go down like this.'"
