    I really don't think Romney spent 25 years at Bain to hone his political skills. He did it to get very, very rich, and he is: he is the richest person ever to run for president, by quite a margin.

        he's only the wealthiest in the past decade, since Steve Forbes. And he's a piker compared with Ross Perot. That's even more depressing than if Romney were the richest!

        Had John Kennedy lived to inherit his parents' fortune, he would have been the second-wealthiest president. The real surprise: the wealthiest president, adjusted to present-day dollars? George Washington!
