Robert Rubin is set to endorse Hillary Clinton for president. To some this is seen as some great thing because of his experience in the financial world. Given that he supports Democrats it was just a matter of who and given that he had misgivings about her ability to be elected as well as their past run ins it is likely that his endorsement came as a result of some arm twisting by his former boss, Bill Clinton. Interestingly, the article states:
Her husband will continue his bustling fund-raising pace on her behalf, meanwhile: he will headline two major events for her in New York in the next few weeks, as well as one in New Jersey next month. He will also host fundraisers for her in Dublin and London next weekend â€” receptions that could be especially lucrative given his popularity in both countries, especially Ireland, where he played a major role in the Northern Ireland peace process. New York Times
Forgetting that Dublin and London are not countries, why are they raising money in other countries? Why is foreign money being used to influence an American election? Will they discuss any fund raisers in China?
After all, that is where the Clintons get their money (just ask Bill about the 8 million for AK 47s).
