Setting the stage for the “we know what it’s like to be you” portion of a possible Hillary campaign launch next year is under way:

“We came out of the White House not only dead broke, but in debt,” Clinton said in an interview airing tonight on ABC.

“We had no money when we got there, and we struggled to, you know, piece together the resources for mortgages, for houses, for Chelsea’s education. You know, it was not easy.”

“Bill has worked really hard — and it’s been amazing to me — he’s worked very hard. First of all, we had to pay off all our debts, which was, you know, he had to make double the money because of obviously taxes and then pay off the debts and get us houses and take care of family members.”

Maybe Bob Bennett didn’t work for free, but how you could ever go broke while possessing this kind of cattle futures acumen is beyond me.

Here’s a detail to which the proletariat can certainly relate:

The Clintons actually had a helping hand as they got their financial lives in order. Wealthy Clinton pal Terry McAuliffe (now governor of Virginia) loaned them $1.3 million for the purchase of their $1.7 million Chappaqua home.

They’re just like us!
