Chelsea Clinton says in a new interview that she's open to a run for a multitude of offices, from  mayor of New York to the U.S. Senate.

"I live in a city and a state and a country where I support my elected representatives," Clinton told Fast Company. "If at some point that weren't the case, and I didn't support my mayor or my city councilwoman or my congresswoman or either of my senators -- and I'm lucky to live in a state where I have lots of women representing me, you know -- maybe then I'd have to ask and answer the question for myself, and come to a different answer."

The answer is pretty similar to a response Clinton, 34, has given before, except in her prior response, she didn't spell out the different offices that are on her radar.

New York's two U.S. senators, for what it's worth, are Charles Schumer (D), 63, and Kirsten Gillibrand (D), 47.

Here's a rundown of all the offices Clinton could run for, courtesy of The Fix.
