I think this might qualify as "superrich".

I'm really getting sick and tired of the Democrats "I'm for the working guy" routine myself. The Clintons, Bayhs, Obamas, Schellingers, et al. are all multi-millionaires. And what do they have in common? They all made their their money trading their political positions to self-enrich themselves.

All ex-presidents do very well financially on the speaking circuit. Your hero Ronald Reagan raised eyebrows when he got paid $2 million in Japan for speeches he gave in 1989 (about $3.5 million in today's dollars). Even George H.W. gets paid pretty hefty fees for speeches (not that he needs the money, since he was already extremely wealthy prior to being elected).

McCain on the other hand is not married to an ex-president like Hillary, but one thing they have in common is that his vast wealth has come by marriage. His second wife Cindy is worth over $100 million.

Who cares? The Senate is full of millionaires. My review of Obama's return didn't indicate he is a millionaire. By the way I don't support Mr. Obama. Mr. I didn't know my pastor was a racists.
