    Sure it does.

    A salaried professorship is far less open to abuse than a lawyer who's income is widely variable depending on clients and cases and work load.

    It is telling that public school is not even mentioned.

    .
    Let's not even go there with Bill Clinton, in spite of the fact that not even he would go there. The liability would be too great and "no real money". That was his primary goal following his two terms. "Make some real money", that is.

    The question isn't about Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Trump, Johnson or anyone else in particular.

    I think you don't well understand how earings flow/work for senior/"high unit" partners -- which is almost certainly what one would been in any firm even before becoming First Spouse -- in highly successful firms.

    Fair enough, as you are the OP. In my personal opinion, absolutely, the spouse should be free to pursue their chosen profession as long as incidentals such as family and children are not overlooked.

    Good Lord, can you imagine if Trump wins and that woman decides to go back into the "modeling" semi-nude business?

    Been there. Done that for all intents and purposes, though I wouldn't call a swimsuit layout "semi-nude."

    There are apparently (I make no attestation to the authenticity of the photos) more revealing shots here:
    But I'm not one of those "religious right" folks who gives a damn whether Mrs. Trump modeled nude or not. It's not as though lots of hot young women don't dress like that to attend any number of fundraisers, cocktail parties, pool parties, and so on. Most importantly, what I think about Donald Trump and his policy proposals has nothing to do with Melania Trump or anyone else, be they named Trump or not.

    If Mrs. Trump wants to take paid modeling gigs while being First Lady, fine by me.

    You may be very first person I've ever observed refer to family and children as "incidentals."
