A Born Politician?

From The Associated Press:

In the 18 months prior to announcing her second campaign for president, the front-runner for the Democratic nomination addressed private equity investors in California and New York, delivered remarks to bankers in Hilton Head, South Carolina, and spoke to brokers at the Ritz-Carlton in Naples, Florida.

Her efforts capped a nearly 15-year period in which Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, made at least $35 million by giving 164 speeches to financial services, real estate and insurance companies after leaving the White House in 2001, according to an Associated Press analysis of public disclosure forms and records released by her campaign.

What I’m hoping against hope is that Hillary belongs in politics as that art was defined by Sam Rayburn. The advice of the legendary Speaker of the House to rookie congressmen: “Son, if you can’t drink their whiskey, take their money, screw their women, and then vote against ’em in the morning, you don’t belong in politics.”

Well, she (and he) have certainly done all that.

In spades. (to be a bit whimsical)

What I'm hoping for is that voters stop throwing up long enough to vote for Bernie as he seems to be the only alternative to Trump & Cruz.

But you know,we gotta move!

The U.S. is not going to be economically habitable for the lower classes (and that's just about all of us now) for the next 20 years.
