Quote: The Fall of a Middle Class Family

McDonnells at their inaugural.
“This was a … middle-class family that had ambitions far larger than their budget, and so once they achieved the goal of the governorship, they weren’t ready psychologically for what was going to come,” UVa's Larry Sabato said. He said he’s seen over the years a difference between public officials who come from money and those who don’t.

--Richmond Times-Dispatch story today on the fall of Gov. Bob McDonnell. (One wonders where Pat Robertson figures in this and why he is not supporting his accolyte, McDonnell, a graduate of Robertson's Regent University. Jerry Falwell Jr. came to his rescue recently by hiring McDonnell at Liberty University to teach.)
