Putting Perspective On Wealth - Al Gore

"Former U.S. Vice President Al Gore left the White House seven years ago with less than $2 million in assets, including a Virginia home and the family farm in Tennessee."

Leaving aside all that Al Gore's done since leaving office, which is a lot, think about all of the people with similar wealth making less of an impact.

Food for thought.

To be fair to all those millionaires who haven't achieved what he has in the past 8 years, I think his job in DC opened up one or two doors. It's all about who you know. That's why you need to send your kids to the best schools. They don't learn much more, but they are connected til the cows come home.
