Chelsea Clinton: 'Unabashedly' biased toward mom

(CNN) - Should Hillary Clinton decide to run for president again, she doesn't need to worry about convincing daughter Chelsea.

"She's my mom. I'm just unabashedly, unapologetically biased towards her, because I think she's just awesome in every way. She exemplifies and supports and advocates for so much of what I believe in," the younger Clinton told CNN's Michaela Pereira in an interview. All three Clintons - former President Bill, former Secretary of State Hillary, and former First Daughter Chelsea - are in Chicago for the meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative.

Chelsea Clinton: We can make a difference

,

Editor's note: Chelsea Clinton works with the Clinton Foundation and the Clinton Global Initiative and serves on the boards of both organizations. She is a special correspondent for NBC News and also serves on the boards of the School of American Ballet, Common Sense Media and the Weill Cornell Medical College. She and her husband, Marc, live in New York City.

(CNN) - I'm proud to be the honorary chair of the National Day of Service happening this Saturday, inspired by Martin Luther King Jr.'s life and legacy. It's the perfect way to kick off the inauguration weekend because anyone can participate, and we know that when we work together, we will achieve more than one person could on his or her own.

President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, members of Congress and their families will be rolling up their sleeves at service projects in our nation's capital. But you don't have to be in Washington to get involved. From repairing fire-damaged homes in Colorado and cleaning sidewalks in Detroit to spending time with children with disabilities in New Orleans, every state will offer opportunities to volunteer.
