With Ivanka Trump, the typically minor role of first daughter could get a major makeover.
    
After she played a key role on the campaign trail for President-elect Donald Trump, her next moves are being closely watched. She has been attending some of her father's transition meetings and has indicated her interest in working on policy issues like child care.
    
Questions abound about how Donald Trump's 35-year-old daughter could hold an official position. Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway is suggesting there may be an exception to nepotism rules.
    
Previous first daughters have played a social role in the White House. But Katherine Jellison, who chairs the history department at Ohio University, says it would be "unprecedented" for Ivanka Trump to serve as a close adviser.
