Hillary Clinton may have stepped in it again. In interview with Britain's Guardian, Clinton was asked whether her personal wealth would hurt her credibility with voters on issues like income inequality if she decides to run for president. Straight forward question, right? Well Clinton compared herself to other wealthy people who she said were "truly well off." While it's true that the Clintons were deeply in debt when they left the White House, it's also true that they've amassed what most Americans would consider a fortune since then. Anderson takes a closer look at the former first family's road to riches.

Good for the Clintons and their earned wealth. How about a cover story on Romney and his hidden wealth and consulting gigs where he helps other rich entities avoid taxes? That would be 10x more interesting than this Clinton piece.
