A Question for the Group

A tidbit from Frank Rich's editorial in the Sunday New York Times has stuck in my craw. I thought I might put it before the group and ask you for your interpretation.

Well, people want to know who exactly is funding his presidential library, and he hasn't said.

But yes, if you're going to bother to qualify it with "post-presidency", you ought to explain what you're talking about.

Here's a link to an article in the Washington Post about the funding for the Clinton Library.

I wondered if it refers to his activist post-presidency, modeled on Jimmy Carter. Like maybe if Hilary was the V.P. nominee, then she'd be confronted with questions about what the Clinton Foundation has been doing. Doesn't seem like controversial stuff to me, but I haven't looked closely.
