They behave as if they can relate to the struggles of the working class, but I'm not convinced most of them ever had to work a day.
Bush was born rich and Kerry's money mostly comes from his wife. But Cheney got rich by working in business, and Edwards got rich by working as a lawyer.
The real problem is indeed the act. It never ceases to astound me how easily the Democrats can dupe their constituents on this subject by claiming that Republicans are too rich and out of touch with the unrich, when the Democrats saying this are richer than most Republicans. But they keep doing it, and people keep falling for it.
That alone is the reason why the money matters: not on its own relevance, but because of the claims they make about it, which must be refuted.
