Politics: That's Rich

Forbes has a little article on the richest U.S. Presidents. The headline proclaims that "Kerry Would Be Third-Richest U.S. President." In the article it acknowledges that Bush is also rich, but fails to mention, or show in the accompanying graphic (which only shows the Top Five) where he places on the list.

You need to click the a link to watch a slideshow of biographies, there you'll find out Bush is the 10th-Richest President. I wonder how he scrapes by...

In a related story of struggling public servitude, Tom Ridge is considering resigning and entering the private sector so he can pay to send his two kids to college. As a Cabinet Secretary, Ridge makes $175,000 a year and he can't figure out how to pay for college!!?? Just more proof that Republicans either don't know how to handle money or they are completely out of touch wtih the plight of average Americans. Take your pick.
