Tennessee Democrat Phil Bredesen, a Harvard University-educated man worth up to $358 million and the owner of five homes, has diagnosed his party with an “elitist” problem.

Bredesen earned his fortune in the pharmaceutical and health care sectors before entering politics. He is now running for U.S. Senate. He told NPR he hopes his run could offer a blueprint for Democrats on how to recover from becoming “too elitist and too distant from the concerns of the very down to Earth people that have always been the base of the party.”

The article goes on to state the following:

With reported assets between $88.9 million and $358 million, Bredesen, if elected, would become one of the richest members of Congress. Public records show he is the owner of five homes—two homes in Nashville, two lakefront properties in upstate New York, and a five-bedroom home in Jackson, Wyoming.

Bredesen is also one of the registered owners of an Embraer Phenom 300 private jet, according to Federal Aviation Association records. The Embraer Phenom 300 goes for $10 million, according to CNBC.

Bredesen admitted in a Friday interview with the Chattanooga Times Free Press he considers himself more “sophisticated” than the voters he’s trying to reach, but that he does feel plugged in to their “world.”

“I feel like I’ve got one foot firmly planted in that world,” Bredesen said, in reference to groups who feel they are being looked down on by elites. “On the other hand, I have a foot planted in a more sophisticated world, for lack of a better word. I went to an Ivy League college, I’ve been a mayor, a governor, and CEO of a public company.”

“Part of what I’m trying to do at this point in my life is bring those worlds together,” he said.

    Sounds like he still considers himself above everybody, more educated and more world savvy. Now he wants to bestow his magnanimous attitude to the lower ranks. Have enough of them in the government already don’t need anymore we want real people that can relate to the world we live in not the rich elite world.
