Okay, the question that's on everyone's mind, but no one is
willing to ask up-front; So who had Ron Brown in the office death-watch pool?
I certainly didn't. I mean, he'd only been under investigation for something like eleven months now and was probably weeks away from an indictment; the prime of his political life, judging by how the rest of the Clinton cabinet has gone. According to lawyers on his side, he'd personally brought over $40 Billion of new business into the U.S. during his tenure and, according to the lawyers investigating his prior business dealings, had only ripped-off a paltry $300,000 for his own. Neither of these are records, of course, but a pretty solid effort you must admit.
