Hillary, the Capitalist

Hillary Clinton caused a stir in the early 1990s, when it was revealed that the first lady, in 1978, had turned $1,000 into $100,000 in 10 months by trading cattle futures as the wife of Arkansas’ attorney general.

These days, that gain would barely register in her portfolio, which has grown as large as $50 million, according to a campaign-disclosure filing with the Federal Election Commission.
