How did Hillary get so rich?

Trump’s new ad via Instapundit:

CULTURE OF CORRUPTION: Trump’s Closer: How Did Hillary Get So Rich? “The Clintons made several millions off of book deals, but made a lot more off of their connections to power and monied interests, including $57.5 million during the four years Hillary Clinton served as Secretary of State. Donald Trump has occasionally made reference to this, but he’s making it an explicit argument in the final week with his new ad, “Corruption.” Washington Post analyst Chris Cillizza is impressed. . . . Don’t forget that the Clintons had been in federal office continuously from January 1992 to February 2013, a period of twenty-one years, while they amassed a nine-figure net worth. Only a small portion of that came from book advances, while their speeches and especially Bill’s consultancy income derived almost entirely from Hillary’s status as a Senator and later as Secretary of State. (See Laureate Education for an $18 million example, where Bill was paid eight figures to be an honorary chancellor.)”

How she gets a single vote remains beyond me. Have the last eight years really been that great that we should want four more like it, if not actually worse?

And also via Instapundit, which for the first time puts me in complete agreement with Obama:


One can only hope.
