Is the real conflict in America the upper class vs. the lower class, the right vs. left, or just the political class vs. everyone else?
The latter seems to the case when you look at the latest news out of Oregon and its "will he or won't he?" Governor John Kitzhaber.
It looked like the just re-elected Democrat was about to step down yesterday after a number of meetings were canceled and Oregon's Secretary of State abruptly cut short a trip out-of-state and returned to Portland.
But now, the Governor insists he's going to serve out his 4th term no matter what.
All of the speculation surrounds alleged misconduct by and on behalf of Kitzhaber's fiancé Cylvia Hayes.
Hayes is accused of using Kitzhaber's office and staff to help herself secure lucrative jobs and major papers in Oregon have begun calling for the Governor to resign.

In the latest twist, Hayes is claiming that she's not subject to government employee ethic rules because she's not technically a government employee (That's despite the fact that she has an office at the capitol and is listed as the state's "First Lady" on the Governor's website).
Now, how would it go for any of us in the private sector if we were caught bringing our girlfriends into the office so they could drum up business for themselves?
That's what many people mean when they talk about the special rules for the "political class" that include elected officials, their staffers, family members, and lovers.
