"Voters respect wealth. The issue is what you do with it and how you got it. She will be fine."
"FDR, JFK, HRC. No."
"As long as she doesn't build a car elevator in her house, she will be fine. Americans still admire success, although not ostentatiousness."
"Last time I checked, Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous and Keeping up with the Kardashians were very popular TV shows. She's fine as long as she keeps a common touch."
"If she were new to the electorate, possibly. But that's not the case. If you like her, you like her regardless. Who are the nonwealthy candidates?"

"In the context of income inequality, it takes away a huge issue for the Democrats."
"Wellesley, Yale, corporate boards, governor's mansion, White House, Senate, Foggy Bottom, back to the White House"¦ just like you and me."
"Not because of how much money she has but the way she has made it and the way they have operated the Clinton Foundation."
"Like Romney, it is not the fact [that]she is wealthy that is a problem; it is her inability to talk about it that is a killer."
"Not as bad as Romney's car garage, but makes her Warren channeling seem a bit hollow."
"Rich Democrats get a pass in a way that rich Republicans never could."
"People generally expect politicians to be rich."
"She'll argue she can't be bought. The irony will be lost on the stupid."
