Hillary Clinton's Wealth Could Buy a Steak for Nearly Every Man, Woman and Child in Iowa's Six Surrounding States

Beef, of all sorts, is on the menu for a potential Hillary Clinton 2016 presidential run.

Hillary Clinton descended into Iowa on Sunday and attended Sen. Tom Harkin's (D - Iowa) legendary "steak fry," an event which launched the presidential career of Barack Obama in 2006.

Wearing jeans and a red-and-white shirt that resembled a picnic tablecloth, former President Bill Clinton accompanied Hillary, and the two did their best to act the part of the everyday American.

There's only one problem.

The Clintons are anything but.

The power couple could buy a steak for every one at the Harkin steak fry. In fact, with their net worth in excess of $100 million the Clintons could buy enough steaks for nearly every man, woman and child in the six states which border the swing state of Iowa.

That's right. At an average of $3.89 for a one-pound steak, the Clintons' wealth could buy a steak for nearly every resident of Nebraska, South Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Missouri and Illinois - a population of approximately 32 million people.

That's a lot of beef.

What does not have much beef to it, however, is Hillary's run for the White House.

In an interview with ABC News' Jonathan Karl the host of the steak fry, retiring Sen. Harkin, even claimed he didn't know exactly what Hillary Clinton actually stands for.

As Hillary would say, what difference does it make? The former first lady says she will not make any official announcement regarding a bid for the White House until January 2015.

Meantime, Republicans are no doubt licking their chops over a potential Hillary run -- as they should be. According to new poll numbers, Americans increasingly have a beef with the foreign policy which Hillary Clinton presided over as secretary of state during the Obama administration: four American lives lost in Benghazi and a weaker American position in the world today.

For Hillary, that is going to be a tall order to overcome.
