They all go on to very cushy jobs after they leave an administration.  A friend’s son worked directly for Obama’s election team. After he left office, the son got a very nice job in private industry which he had no qualifications for, other than campaign work. Literally.  He’s a young man with a huge future due to politics.  I can’t say the name of the business, but it’s one everyone is familiar with.

I am sure it works out very well for most. I grew up thinking volunteers for campaigns were truly volunteers. Boy, I sure learned a lot later on.

People who sit in local offices are just volunteers. I did it a few times and was never offered a job. This person was a paid strategist with no prior experience other than a college degree.

Volunteering looks good on a resume'. A relative did it for a commissioner. He got a nice job out of it later on. Of course, he had an excellent package, starting with Eagle Scout, private boys school and a job in news. He did very well financially in his life but had 4 wives.

4 wives could be a deal breaker.

As far as I know, 4 has been a lucky number for him. His dad had 6.

When numbers get that high, they should not remarry.  They obviously are doing something wrong.

His dad was brilliant, charming, good looking, rich. Had it all and had 6. Must have rubbed off on him?
I think his dad set a bad example that a good mom and her good 2nd dh could not change.

He was too much like his father, although maybe he was happy switching wives.

His mom died when he was 13. He was 6 of 7. Maybe it did something to him? His looks and brains in hs and college may have done something to him and he found compensation in being popular? I don't know. Never met him. He was on wife 3 or 4 when I was born.
