    I don’t see why a pension should bother someone. If you want one apply for government positions. That’s all I applied to after graduate school and was willing to move.

    40 million is his current net worth. Hardly a billionaire.

    Thats a pretty big jump from what he was worth in 2007 though. And I’ll bet it will continue to rise at a pretty good clip. He should take a few lessons from Gore if he really wants to cash in.

    Big jump for sure. Book deals and speaking engagements are lucrative. And the Pres and Michelle are both doing it so they double their miles

    and the speaking engagements can get so much because they are payback for policy. Brilliant people speak without raking in so much, but you can't get laws out of them.
    If you want something to get done, ask a busy person. If you want them to have a nervous breakdown that is.
