Saw Madeline Albright speak

My current interest in politics: 0.0000001%

I’m sure that will change throughout life, but currently it’s super low.

HOWEVER…..I do find the process of running a campaign fascinating.  It involves:

  • Fundraising hundreds of millions of dollars.
  • Forming alliances.
  • Playing strategies.
  • A bunch of shady “scratch-my-back-and-I’ll-scratch-your-back” deals happen.

Plus I think this is what super rich people do.

It seems when each economic class moves upwards, they discover something:

Poor: “Oh wow! I can learn valuable skills that will make me more money.”

Middle Class: “Oh wow! I can create my own income and don’t have to work for somebody else.”

Rich: “Oh wow! I can actually switch out the people who make the rules.”

For this reason I went to go see Madeline Albright (former secretary of state) speak at a private house.  I had to pay money to attend:
