Do you have to be rich to run for president?

It’s certainly not a requirement, but I read an interesting article in Money magazine that gave a bit of background on the net worths of seven of the original candidates. Here are the highlights…

Mitt Romney – $202 Million (Net Worth in US Dollars)
John Edwards – $54 Million
Rudy Giuliani – $52 Million
John McCain – $40 Million
Hillary Clinton – $39 Million
Fred Thompson – $8 Million
Barack Obama – $1 Million
