    Apr 30 2013: Do you think the reason a poor person cannot be elected to office is because voters figure a poor person would be incapable of success in politics if they are not capable of success in personal wealth? I am asking if voters would vote for a non-wealthy candidate if one somehow managed to stay in the race? We might succeed at leveling the playing field only to discover that voters prefer "financially successful" candidates. Just a thought.
