Nice article, thanks!

I saw the fellow who followed Mr Clinton on the teevee machine, pleading with folks to buy his book.

Kind of the same, right?

If Samantha succeeds in her career -- and I certainly expect she will -- credit will be due the wealth and connections that allow her to attend Menlo and earned her the invitation to this exclusive dinner for rich donors, not her journalistic talents.

Give credit to a 16 year old who is intelligent, an excellent student and a good writer. Do some homework and find out how many non wealthy students attend Menlo. She writes for her school paper and has written many articles for the Almanac while working there as an intern a job she applied for and earned on her own. She also does much volunteer work. What were you doing when you turned 16?
