A recent Wall Street Journal (WSJ), "Billionaires Put Their Stamp on Campaign," makes it clear that we are watching a new political era in the United States--an era of Big Bucks Politics. If you don't have millions in your coffers, or rich friends, get out of the proverbial political kitchen, because money is the fuel driving political elections today. 

America used to decry the political culture of Latin America that seemed embroiled in the politics of money and family connections, to the point of creating political aristocracies. But reading the WSJ article reveals we can no longer point the finger (of integrity or without impunity) at the idiosyncrasies of other countries' politics. We have our own political aristocracy.
