Has there ever been someone with so few real life accomplishments who got handed such great opportunities as Chelsea Clinton?

You may recall her six-figure gig at NBC a few years ago. Now she’s moving on to another green pasture, this time at Expedia.

CNN reports:

Expedia names Chelsea Clinton to board of directors

In a public filing posted Friday, the travel site said it named Clinton — the daughter of Hillary Clinton — as a member of its board on Thursday.

Expedia (EXPE) said Clinton will be paid “in accordance with the company’s standard compensation policies” for board members.

According to an Expedia proxy statement from August, non-employee directors were paid a $45,000 “annual retainer” and awarded $250,000 worth of stock in 2015.

Board members who served on various committees were paid an additional $10,000 to $20,000. But Expedia said in a filing that Clinton “has not been appointed to serve as a member of any committee.”

Clinton serves on the board of one other corporation: IAC/InterActive Corp (IAC), the company that owns websites including Dictionary.com, About.com, Vimeo, Investopedia and The Daily Beast.

Chelsea Clinton is being groomed. She’s going to run for office eventually, and her resume has to have something on it. Have you noticed how much she’s been in the news lately? Others have:

Here’s an excerpt from one of these stories at The Hill:

Chelsea Clinton fuels speculation of political run

When rumors started swirling after the election that Chelsea Clinton was considering her own foray into politics, it was met with eye rolls even from staunch supporters of the family.

“Think we can let the dust settle a bit before we start talking about another Clinton race?” one former adviser to Hillary Clinton said after the New York Post reported in November that the former first daughter was being “groomed” to run for Congress, possibly replacing 79-year-old congresswoman Nita Lowey (D-N.Y.) “It’s exhausting.”

But that skepticism is starting to fade.

Last month, a separate report in the New York Daily News said that Clinton could potentially run for Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand’s (D-N.Y.) seat, should the senator decide to run for president in 2020.

Clinton has only stoked the rumors further, particularly on Twitter, where she has repeatedly gone after President Trump and his associates since Inauguration Day. On Sunday, she also took the opportunity to rail against Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) for racially charged comments about immigrant babies.

Is it really Chelsea who’s fueling speculation on a run or is it the media?

They’re determined to pass the baton to a Clinton for the next generation.
