Pots and Kettles

I think it is utterly hilarious that Hillary Clinton and John McCain are calling Barack Obama "elitist" the past few days. Consider the adult backgrounds of these three people.

John McCain has spent the past 20+ years as a member of the senior governing body of this country, with a bank account in eight figures, living in million-dollar palaces in two states and travelling in private airplanes.

Hillary Clinton graduated from law school and promptly went to work for a major law firm at a large salary, served on the boards of major corporations, lived in the White House for eight years where she never needed to even open a door for herself, and has since had to struggle along with an income of a mere $109 Million in the past seven years.

Barack Obama graduated from law school and went to work on the south side of Chicago doing community organization for people who had lost their jobs when steel mills closed, and he is only about a decade removed from those efforts. Either one of his opponents has likely handled more money in one year than he has made in his entire lifetime.

And they are calling him "elitist" and "out of touch."

    I believe the majority of politicians (at least at the national level, but many at the state level, too) are pretty well off compared to the american public. like Mazine Waters, who repesents South Central LA.. she is a multi millionaire. Is she a fair representative of that area? I doubt it.

    Many politicos are hypocritical, and I don't put a lot of credence in what they say about being for the common man.
