    Mitch is married to a Chinese woman whose family has deep roots in international.  She was Bush's Sec of Labor when 3,000,000 jobs went to China. Mitch's personal fortune is growing very nicely.

      seems to be present in all populations. Some humans, probably because they have no talents, other than the gift of gab, which other humans find it useful to reward, specialize in moving things around so, like the highwayman of old, they can extort a "cut" for letting the cargo proceed.
      For things to be captured, they have to be moving. Self-sustaining enterprise is, therefor, not attractive to the highwayman or pirate mentality.  So, if things are not moving on their own, they need to be prodded into motion.  And, for creatures of habit, the prodding becomes a routine.
      Then too, habits have a way of turning into obsessions and obsession, of course, is characterized by the obsessed never getting enough.

      Whether McConnell is obsessed by power or wealth doesn't make a lot of difference because power, to be felt, has to hurt and the easiest way to inflict hurt is to keep people from accessing and using the money they need.

      Clinton, btw, was quite capable of bowing to the Riadys and David Rockefeller absent a wife who was related to either.  Family ties provide a cheap rationale, but are most likely not determinative.
