Chelsea, will run on her name. Nothing more. That's because she will enter the political sphere with no actual experience having every done anything of any substance outside of academia. Unfortunately, academia is one large bubble of people who have little to no understanding of how the real world works, and how people actually behave and interact with each other. Most of us who have been educated (and I use that term lightly) at the college level will remember that the adjunct professors where typically the ones you could learn the most from. They could give you insight into what happens outside of a textbook, and help you actually prepare for the field of your choice. One of my colleagues taught adjunct at St Johns University. He would repeatedly make me laugh with the stories of how full time professors would engage him about what happens at work during the day, because they real had no idea. The vast majority of what I ever learned that was relevant in my field was on the job training
The point is that Chelsea's qualifications are next to nothing. However, that wouldn't make her much different from most of the other characters in the D.C. area, who typically have done literally nothing before running for office. D.C is full of lawyers who in many cases ran for office almost right out of law school having never even practiced law.
In terms of helping people. I think it is quite naïve to believe that anywhere near even a small minority of the people in the political sphere are interested in helping anyone but their own power base. We sometimes align to support an elected official because they are advocating a policy we believe in. But he/she usually advocates it because they want our vote. There are very few altruistic politicians. And the few that do exist, don't stay that way once they get a taste of the power that corrupts them quite quickly. If they were truly altruistic they'd be dedicating their lives to charitable organizations without the fan fare of publicity that always accompanies their good deeds and garners them public attention. I once worked for a client who gave away 10 of millions to a charitable trust for cancer research. Nearly her entire net worth that she accumulated over a lifetime. The university offered to name the wing after her. She declined and told me that she didn't donate the money to get her name on a wall. She was truly interested in helping people. Someone like that doesn't run for office.
