Hillary told Diane Sawyer that they were dead broke when they left the White House. Currently my husband & are paying for a mortgage,etc &still don't consider ourselves dead broke. How can she possibly say they were dead broke when they left WH?

They already had guaranteed multimillion dollar book deals. She's trying to identify with the real people to get their votes.

She was trying to relate to a substantial portion of her party's base. Weak attempt I might add...

She is a god damn liar. She just signed an $8 million dollar agreement for her book, when they left the White House. She should do well in 2016. She is lying just like the master, Obama.

If you listen closely she says mortgages for houses. It's amazing you can feel broke when you have more than one. This is so out of touch with normal people. I'm doing fine financially but could never imagine more than one home.

They are worth $130 million now. Did the bank think they wouldn't be able to pay off their loans? They moved into Chapaqua immediately after leaving WH. This is her way of saying " I know what it means to be you

I'm not saying it wasn't tone deaf. I'm just answering your poll question as to how she could possibly say it. Even wealthy people can feel cash-strapped when their asset-to-debt ratio and/or income undergoes adjustments. Doesn't mean they're right.

She & Bill seem to have an issue with just owning things. Like with Lewinsky, how much embarrassment could have been avoided had he just owned up to it?

I don't believe they were "dead broke" but I also don't believe it was a hidden agenda. I believe her comments referred to her perception of "broke". I am "broke" when I have no spending cash because I am trying to save for something.

While they were there, they paid for no healthcare or insurance. They had no mortgage or automobile payments. They never had to buy any gasoline. They never bought any groceries or paid to eat out. Their vacations were paid in full by the taxpayers.
