Dana has already led us in some fun earlier tonight as we gleefully mock Joe Biden for pretending to be a couple of missed paychecks away from the breadline (or at least having to buy a coach class ticket on Amtrak). Clearly he is trying to get in on the “I know what it’s like to be financially insecure” bandwagon that his putative 2016 rival Hillary Clinton so clumsily set in motion recently. Comes now (channeling George Will here for no particular reason) one Chelsea Clinton to indulge her inner hippie by proclaiming in a recent interview: “I’ve tried really hard to care about things that were very different from my parents. I was curious if I could care about [money] on some fundamental level, and I couldn’t. That wasn’t the metric of success that I wanted in my life.”
Chelsea Clinton and her husband bought a $10.5 million home in Manhattan last spring.
