2300 Porsche 911 Carreras

$109,823 per delegate.

The former First Lady, an outspoken proponent of family values, might have delivered a much-needed vacation to working families: sending more than 76,000 families of four from New York to California to visit Mickey, Donald and Goofy . . .

And she could have bought 9,838 people a new hybrid Toyota Prius, or given out 70.7 million energy-efficient light bulbs . . .

And think of Clinton’s deep interest in health care: $212 million could’ve covered 705 artificial heart surgeries. Or, presuming an average price of $20, she could have bought flu vaccines for 10.6 million people – not quite universal, but a darn good start.

I can’t even imagine blowing such a sum in a year. After saving for seven years, I think I have approximately that amount in retirement income . . .

  2. Too much, fer shure.

    I’m sure McCain and Obama have spent exorbitant amounts as well. It wasn’t meant as a personal attack on Ms. Clinton, just a commentary on the mind-boggling amount of money involved in our political process.
