C'mon MSN... Success isn't genetic... We (the regular people) already know that successful people are "well connected" people... Well connected to OTHER successful people, that is. It's "who you know" that matters in the course of being successful. This crap even exists in the middle and lower classes as well....Good qualified people can't even get city or state jobs nowadays... Those jobs are given to friends and family.
"how well they've done on their own"? really? you're good with that?

Furthermore, if they don't succeed they for the most part have their families to fall back on. That is why the wealthy have stayed wealthy.
