Ya gotta be rich to run for office in a democracy? Nah. Obama and his wife are worth just over a million, total, including their home–by farrrr the poorest folks to run for our highest office in many years—and they just now paid off their college loans. So I guess all of Hillary’s accusations of elitism are based on Obama’s attitude, not bank account.
