Ego knows no bounds when you mix a liberal mindset with winning the lottery (or in his case, cashing in on the opportunity to invest early in Amazon). And that pretty much defines Seattle’s accidental mega-donor, Nick Hanauer.
In a new profile piece allegedly about Hanauer’s political consultant, it is instead Hanauer where he likes to be – front and center (or more appropriately, left of center), bragging about how “The great thing about being me is that I can do whatever I want.”
Hanauer is no stranger to Democrats seeking campaign cash – from Presidential candidates to U.S. Senators – though they do have to listen to him talk about himself and understand he will speak condescendingly about them to others:
“They come in thinking they’re raising money for their campaigns, and they walk out realizing they’ve become one of my ‘middle-out’ minions.”
But what else can you expect from someone who is so out of touch with reality that he evidently believes, and will say to a reporter “I am one of the world’s best strategists. I will put my strategic abilities against anybody on Earth.”
