After about a 20-minute drive, motorcade arrived at 4:59 at the home
of Michael Smith, a prominent interior designer who is married to the
Spanish ambassador. The fundraiser for the Democratic National
Committee has about 50 people who paid up to $33,400 a person to
attend.

Happiness research suggests that neither income nor large homes in
beautiful locales with fabulous weather necessarily lead to happiness.
Further, that experiences are often more valuable than possessions.
Your Pooler is sure that no one at the fundraiser has ever laid down
fully dressed in the king-sized bed in this guest room with two large
photographers from major wire services and watched the
Arkansas/Alabama game while POTUS spoke in the vast living room.
