Money money money

With the surprising news today that Hillary had to resort to lending her campaign $5 million, I think it's interesting to remind ourselves of the net worth of the remaining candidates in the race (thank you, Salon, for the handy chart). Here they are, from richest to poorest least rich:

Mitt and Ann Romney: $202 million
John and Cindy McCain: $40.4 million
Hillary and Bill Clinton: $34.9 million
Barack and Michelle Obama: $1.3 million
