It's All About Money

"Bill Clinton earned $17 million last year giving speeches, including one to a Lagos (Nigeria) company for $700,000.  Hillary gets $200,000 a speech."
This is a contrast in moral values with previous presidents.
"Until Harry Truman wrote his memoirs, the ex-president struggled on an Army pension of $112.50 a month."  He said, "I could never lend myself to any transaction, however, respectable that would commercialize on the prestige and dignity of the office of the presidency."
NYT August 18, 2013.
I long for the old school values.
