Chelsea Clinton: My Mom ‘Never Forgets Who She Is Fighting For’

Chelsea Clinton’s speech Thursday night introducing her mother at the Democratic National Convention “was more fluff that stuff,” according to TIME.

The news outlet reported that the only child of Bill and Hillary Clinton shared anecdotes about her childhood, including dinner-table conversations and trips with her parents. She told the crowd of delegates that her mother, when she was going to be gone for a while, left notes for Chelsea to read each day.

“I’m here as a proud American, a proud Democrat, a proud mother, and tonight in particular a very, very proud daughter,” Chelsea said at the beginning of her speech. Later, she remarked: “I loved that my parents expected me to have opinions and to back them up with facts. I never once doubted that they cared about my thoughts and ideas. And I always, always knew how deeply they loved me.”

She detailed the Democratic presidential nominee’s career as a child-welfare advocate, first lady, U.S. senator and secretary of state. “People ask me all the time how she does it. How she keeps going amid the sound and fury of politics. Here’s how: She never forgets who she is fighting for,” Chelsea said.

The mother of two added: “I hope that my children will someday be as proud of me as I am of my mother. She makes me proud every single day; and to everyone watching tonight, I know with all my heart that my mother will make us proud as our next president.”
