The Clinton's Want To Share The Wealth

Not their own of course.... originally from Hot Air

The Democratic senator said what the Bush administration touts as an “ownership society” really is an “on your own” society that has widened the gap between rich and poor.
“I prefer a ‘we’re all in it together’ society,” she said. “I believe our government can once again work for all Americans. It can promote the great American tradition of opportunity for all and special privileges for none.”
That means pairing growth with fairness, she said, to ensure that the middle-class succeeds in the global economy, not just corporate CEOs.
“There is no greater force for economic growth than free markets. But markets work best with rules that promote our values, protect our workers and give all people a chance to succeed,” she said. “Fairness doesn’t just happen. It requires the right government policies.”

In unrelated news:
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Former President Bill Clinton traveled the globe in 2005 giving speeches that earned him $7.5 million, according to financial disclosure documents his wife, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, is required to file annually

and who can forget this...
(CBS) Former President Clinton has agreed to write his memoirs for Alfred A. Knopf, the publisher announced Monday, in perhaps the biggest deal ever for a nonfiction work.

Terms were not immediately disclosed, but the New York Times reported on its Web site that the 42nd president agreed to an advance of more than $10 million. The book is expected to be out in 2003.

The president's wife, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, inked an $8 million book deal with Simon & Schuster for her memoirs earlier this year. Her one-time opponent in the Senate race, outgoing New York City mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani is in the midst of a $3 million, two book arrangement with Tak Miramax

As Ace said
I'm virtually camped out by my mailbox waiting for my share of the Clintons' considerable wealth.
