I read somewhere that Hillary's presidential campaign spending goal is on the order of $2.5B. That boggles my mind. Just what do you campaign on at that point? How do you even attempt to portray yourself as defending the Little Guy? To get to $2.5B, you've got to be raising huge amounts of money from insanely wealthy donors.
Second, if you're raising that kind of cash after picking up lots of $200K to $300K speaking fees for cookie-cutter speeches, how can you campaign as someone who's in touch with ordinary Americans?
The whole thing is rife with cynicism.
