By 2007, seven years after leaving the White House, the Clintons had earned a combined $109 million (£73 million) through speaking engagements and bestselling memoirs. Even so, apparently they would prefer American voters to settle Mrs Clinton’s remaining $771,000 debt rather than paying it themselves.
And as if this were not enough of a sign that the situation in Washington is completely out of sync with America, just remember that there is no mandatory retirement age for Congress, and many of our "public servants" are in no hurry to retire. Sad. So sad.
