When the Two Gilded Ages Meet


Mitt Romney is having a fundraiser in Hamilton, Montana. Not only is this fundraiser hosted by Charles Schwab, but it is at the home of Marcus Daly, one of Montana’s Copper Kings during the Gilded Age. Among the other Copper Kings–William Clark.

Daly, the power behind Anaconda, hated Clark, so when Clark wanted political office, Daly paid his political opponents to deny him.

What better symbolizes the power of money over politics than having a plutocrat hold a fundraiser hosted by another plutocrat at the home of one of the nation’s all-time biggest plutocrats?
