“Socialism never took root in America because the poor see themselves not as an exploited proletariat but as temporarily embarrassed millionaires.”
― John Steinbeck
A lot of people actually believe they have a shot at living la vida romney. We could make a checklist:
Was your father a governor?
Was your father the ceo of a carmaker?
Was your father a cabinet secretary?
Did you get a Harvard MBA before the market was choked with them?
Those will all get you into the boardroom. Now for the brass ring, the White House…
Are you white, male, and good looking/well spoken in a way that appeals to insecure pundits of both sexes who have daddy issues?
