Of course these days politicians don’t cater so much to mere millionaires.  They seek out billionaires such as Michael Bloomberg, Sheldon Adelson, the Koch brothers and George Soros.

    This makes sense. Bill Clinton actually had a fairly business friendly administration and was markedly conservative for a democrat.

    I’ve not seen anything to indicate Hilary wouldn’t be the same. The problem with Hilary is that you know she and her husband are the epitome of dirty, self serving politics.

    But hey, at this point I think we’ve seen that is the case for everyone at that level in the political system. And if they aren’t they are marginalized, pushed out or even worse, flat out ignored (e.g. Bernie Sanders and Ron Paul).
