  2. Bill Shine:

    And I'm sure you heard the rumor that Barack Obama couldn't get a security clearance required to work for the FBI or CIA, and I want to know if this is true. I mean I'm just a little housewife at home, living my life, taking care of my children. But I'm concerned if we're going to have a president that could not pass a security clearance. Especially, aren't we in a war against terrorism? Aren't we, like, fighting terrorists? So why wouldn't we have a security check for a man who's going to run the country? And I mean not just Barack Obama, but what about our senators, our congresspeople? Do they go through the same security background check as a CIA person would have to go through? I never thought about this.

So when you see the' real housewife' who drives a Bentley you can simultaneously admire her and resent her.

  5. Frances Beatrix Spade:

    House of Cards, is Spade’s niece. In the same 1999 interview with the Boston Globe, Spade, who had five siblings, told the newspaper her father owned a construction company and her mother was a housewife. To say the least, Spade, who recalled times of rummaging through her mother’s jewelry drawer and wearing overalls around the house, never expected to one day become a fashion expert. When I was a kid, I didn't even know Chanel. I would have called it Channel.
