Bill Clinton is probably the poorest president in recent memory. Hillary Clinton's investments, which the Republicans tried to inflate into some sort of "scandal", were a necessary supplement to the piss poor salary of the governor of Arkansas, who receives one of the lowest gubernatorial salaries in the nation. (Clinton was making $35,000 a year when he was governor.) With their education and skills, they could have easily made much, much more than $200,000 in the private sector.

The bullshit Whitewater probes may have not bankrupted the Clintons, but they sure did a great job putting lower level aides and functionaries in financial trouble when they suddenly needed legal counsel.
