uh, financially it sure rocks.
President Bush currently earns $400,000 per year, along with a $50,000 expense account, a $100,000 nontaxable travel account, and $19,000 for entertainment.
he will also get a $190,000 a year pension once he is done plus his own staff and an office paid for by you and me.
not only that, you ARE THE FRIGGIN PRESIDENT
besides, the question was what is better, what or who you know. Considering Ws talents or lack of rather, its pretty clear who you know is more important.
Once again, if a clod like him had come from the upper middle class down he would be a complete nobody.
