    Washington was obviously the pimp of his time.

    The numbers on Bush Senior look vastly understated.

    After Obama serves his second term, he will make more than a hundred million within 5 years getting paid for speeches and book, just because of his background and the great things he has done and will continue to do for this country.

    The wealth in calculated in 2010 dollars. Given the real estate bubble and the location of their holdings, the present value is hardly surprising.

    What's more interesting in this list is how quickly Bubba has amassed wealth. This trend of politicians being funneled money through publishing contracts is a tad unseemly.

    Yes, very interesting.

    The documents obtained Tuesday by The Associated Press show that $4.6 million of the former president's reported $5.7 million in 2008 honoraria came from foreign sources, including Kuwait's national bank, other firms and groups in Canada, Germany, India, Malaysia, Mexico and Portugal and a Hong Kong-based company that spent $100,000 on federal lobbying last year.

    And very unseemly for a former President whose wife was running for President in 2008 and is now Secretary of State.
