Chelsea Clinton May Be Key to Hillary’s Success in 2016

By Courtney Coren

Chelsea Clinton has helped revamp the Clinton Global Initiative into a more effective and efficient charitable organization, using skills that may help her mother, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, if she runs for president in 2016.
-
As vice chair of the Clinton Foundation, Chelsea Clinton used data analysis and management skills she developed in the private sector and applied them to the foundation started by former President Bill Clinton after he left office, according to an interview she did with Fast Company.
-
Since joining the foundation in 2011, Chelsea Clinton commissioned an audit, consolidated offices, instituted performance targets, and streamlined management, according to Fast Company.
-
Chelsea Clinton may use those skills again in a 2016 Hillary Clinton campaign. The former secretary of state’s 2008 presidential campaign had some of the same problems as the foundation, according to National Journal,.
-
“You can’t measure everything, but you can measure almost everything through qualitative and quantitative means so that we known what we’re disproportionately good at,” Chelsea Clinton told Fast Company. “And, candidly, what we’re not so good at, so we can stop doing that and double down on what we’re particularly disproportionately good at.”
-
Hillary Clinton’s 2008 campaign reportedly suffered from having too many powerful people involved, which could make the decision process difficult at times due to infighting, another problem Chelsea Clinton has tackled since joining the Clinton Global Initiative, according to National Journal.
-
The foundation’s deputy director, Ed Hughes, told Fast Company said that he has seen Chelsea’s approach first hand.
-
“Sometimes President Clinton simply would come in and say, ‘you know, I had a great conversation with the King of Jordan. We should do something about Jordan.’ And it would be like, Well, now we’ll make Jordan a priority,” Hughes said.
-
But Chelsea Clinton “wants to see some evidence of why we’re making decisions, as opposed to the anecdotes,” he said.
-
Besides her business management skills, Chelsea Clinton may help her mother draw the youth vote, which Barack Obama dominated in 2008 in his first run for president, according to National Journal.
-
The publication also said that she may be the only person that is capable of keeping both her parents focused and on message, citing an joint interview the three Clintons did with Jimmy Kimmel in March in which she is seen “almost managing her parents in real time.”

Chelsea’s To-Do List

Part data geek, part dynasty daughter, part celebrity, Chelsea’s found a way to thrive both within and without the family business.

  • Get younger people involved.
  • Do the necessary photo ops at foundation projects in African and Asian villages.
  • Help raise a $250 million endowment.
  • Democratize the president’s annual Manhattan confab, so it becomes more than a feel-good event.
  • Become a regular on the speaker circuit, and show up when Bill and Hillary can’t.

2. HELP THE SECRETARY (IN WHATEVER WAYS NECESSARY)

  • Promote Hillary’s new project: a partnership to save the African elephant.
  • Accelerate her data-driven No Ceilings initiative; the partnership with the Gates Foundation analyzes rights for women globally.
  • Become a senior adviser for that 2016 Hillary presidential run?

3. TACKLE BIG CAUSES

  • Drive delivery of affordable treatments against diarrhea, the second-largest killer of children in the world.
  • Get more people involved in public service.
  • Help get juvenile detention facilities to collectively bargain for healthy food.
  • Push for equal LGBT rights globally.

4. GET EVEN MORE OF A LIFE

  • Finish PhD dissertation.
  • Do more softball interviews for NBC.
  • Find best coffee shop in every city around globe.
  • Tweet more or less daily.
  • Is 2014 really the “Year of the Baby?” (Update: Yes, it is! announced yesterday)
  • Contemplate running for Congress–someday.
  • Find time for date night with Marc, despite all this.

THE FUTURE OF FASHION: Maria Pinto launches the M2057 Collection for “Women-on-the-Go”

Leave a comment

Ciao Signori!
(Hello Ladies!)
-
-
I can tell you the exact day I became acquainted with Chicago fashion designer Maria Pinto. It was August 25, 2008 when Michelle Obama walked out on stage at the Democratic National Convention to speak about her husband Senator Barack Obama.  The dress was feminine–yet professional.  It was simple–yet structured.  The color was not politically traditional….it was a striking teal color.

Maria’s concept for her M2057 Collection
“Today’s ‘woman-on-the-go’ was at the front of my mind when designing M2057. The collection reflects high quality design integrity, fit, and comfort, while being low maintenance and easy to care for. The fabrics all have stretch, are machine washable, and pack extremely well.  The styles address a variety of women’s body types, so customers can always find the most flattering look for them. M2057 is your go-to dress that you love wearing because it’s no fuss but also makes you feel beautiful.”   To Read More; click on link below
