Chelsea Clinton: Mom's Benghazi Testimony 'Will Be Remarkable'

Chelsea Clinton is predicting her mother's upcoming testimony before the House Select Committee on Benghazi "will be remarkable," and brushing off partisan attacks that haven't gotten under her "thick skin."

"I think every opportunity my mom has, she proves again and again why she should be our next president," the former first daughter says of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in an interview with "CBS This Morning."

Her remarks start at about the 5-minute point in the interview.

"I know I'm very biased, and I actually think I'm even more biased now as a mom than as a daughter because I feel like I have a different stake in the future because of my daughter, Charlotte."

"And so, I have no doubt on Thursday she will ... be remarkable and that Americans will really see why I so strongly believe that she should be our next president."

Chelsea Clinton also said she doesn't let the criticism of her father, President Bill Clinton, or her mother, and their political careers get to her.

"I mean, I don't remember a time when people weren't attacking my parents," she says. "So in some ways, I think as I grew up I developed a thick skin. And I also know my mom, and I think it's so much more important to look at what people do and how they lead their lives than what's happening in the echo chamber."

She also painted a protected environment when it comes to small talk at home.

"I think because she has so many advisers who know this terrain better than I do, but she only has one daughter and one granddaughter," Chelsea said in response to whether she talks politics with her mother.

"And I want to create and protect that space for our family. I see my mother so much more now than before Charlotte."

She adds that politics hasn't ruined her relationship with friend Ivanka Trump, oldest daughter of front-running GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump, call the fringing "so much more important than anything that happens in politics."
