Concerning many citizens' assertion that somehow substantial monetary accumulation by a presidential candidate is a liability, I would remind people of our first president, George Washington. It is estimated that he was worth $525 million, or about 2 percent of the total U.S. budget in 1789.
Maybe replacing Washington with someone like James Buchanan, a bachelor with few dollars in his pocket, on Mount Rushmore would be logical with this type of reasoning.
