Hillary puts on a happy face despite living on the edge of poverty.

Atlanta - By now, it's become public knowledge that the Clintons have had a tough life these past twenty years. The struggle they have faced as multimillionaires is well documented and admirable.

The ability to "pull oneself up by their bootstraps" while being saddled with millions of dollars in the bank has become an inspiration to countless Americans since the admission by Hillary Clinton that the family has somehow managed to scrape by all these years.

Clint Swanson, a homeless man in downtown Atlanta, heaped praise on the Clintons and their plucky fortitude despite the obstacles wealth has thrown their way.

A minute later he was gone, disappearing into a limo that stopped to pick him up on his way to give a speech at the convention center where he was to be paid fifty thousand dollars to speak to a large crowd eager to hear what an unknown homeless man had to say.

Margie Henderson, a woman who has lived on Atlanta's streets for three years, didn't have time to speak with us because she had to get changed into her evening ball gown for a gala taking place at a swanky Hilton hotel later that evening.

Drew Carlson, homeless for the past year due to losing his job and home, was touched by Chelsea Clinton's recent remarks that 'she has tried to care about money but couldn't.' "She's so profound and enlightened," Drew said. "I hope someday I won't have to care about money either. I'm not quite there yet."

We observed several people living on the streets screaming at others for not carrying their bags for them, shooting fake smiles and waving at passersby who obviously adored them, and getting jetted around on private planes from one area to another - just like the Clintons.

It's clear the Clintons are just regular people who have managed to find a way to survive despite the millionaire curse. Let us hope these homeless people can find a way to survive their own curses and finally become as dead broke as the Clintons.
