    Bill and Hill have made millions over the last 6 years - will they be sharing their money with the masses?

    Clinton: Shared Prosperity Should Replace 'On Your Own' Society


    MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) -- Presidential hopeful Hillary Rodham Clinton outlined a broad economic vision Tuesday, saying it's time to replace an "on your own" society with one based on shared responsibility and prosperity.

    I prefer a 'we're all in it together' society," she said. "I believe our government can once again work for all Americans. It can promote the great American tradition of opportunity for all and special privileges for none."

    Isn't it ironic that she advocates "special privileges for none"

    so the Clintons can have all the privileges............


    Clinton is most expensive ex-president

    WASHINGTON - Which of the three living former presidents costs taxpayers the most money? The most recent to become a former president, Bill Clinton, according to the Congressional Research Service's latest figures.
    The globe-trotting former president with the New York office and a worldwide charitable enterprise is seeking $1.16 million in taxpayer money for fiscal 2008. That is more than double the amount requested by fellow Democrat Jimmy Carter and substantially more than that by Republican George H.W. Bush.

    Clinton's office makes no apologies, saying taxpayers are getting a bargain.

    "Given his tireless work on behalf of the U.S. government abroad with the tsunami and state funerals, including leading the U.S. delegation to Boris Yeltsin's recent funeral, his work at home with Hurricane Katrina recovery, and his vigorous charitable foundation work to fight AIDS, climate change and childhood obesity, I'd say the American people are getting more than their money's worth from President Clinton," spokesman Jay Carson said.

    Hillary Needs Classier Friends
    By Froma Harrop

    Sometimes I forget why the Clintons disturb me. Then they offer a reminder. Case in point are reports that one of Hillary Clinton's most pampered donors made big bucks off scams against the elderly.

    Vinod Gupta heads infoUSA, a "list broker" that has been selling the names of elderly Americans to known con artists. In 2002, he flew the Clintons to a vacation in Acapulco on the company jet. The Omaha-based enterprise subsequently paid Bill Clinton more than $2 million in consulting fees. Gupta gave $1 million to his foundation.

    The concern goes beyond the Clintons' decision to consort with such questionable personalities. That they would do it so openly magnifies long-festering discomfort over their judgment.
