April 8 (UPI) -- Chelsea Clinton appeared in a segment on NBC's "Today" that aired Monday, and she opened the door to a future run for office.

“Right now I’m grateful to live in a city, in a state, in a country where I strongly support my mayor, my governor and my president and my senators and my representative. If at some point that weren’t true and I thought I could make a meaningful and measurably greater impact, you know, I’d have to ask and answer that question.”

The former first daughter is a special NBC News correspondent and involved her father’s Clinton Global Initiative. Clinton moderated panels and led discussions at the CGI University conference in St. Louis over the weekend. The annual meeting for college students is hosted by Bill and Chelsea Clinton and topics range from human trafficking to childhood mortality.

She also addressed speculation about former Secretary of State Hilary Clinton's plans for 2016.

“I deeply respect and appreciate all of the admiration and respect and gratitude for my mother’s service,” she told “Today.” “As a daughter, I very much want her to make the right choice for herself. I know that will be the right choice for our country, and I’ll support her in whatever she chooses to do.”
