The quote “There are two things that are important in politics. The first is money and I can’t remember what the second one is” attributed to Mark Hanna is a satirical acknowledgment that money plays an outsized role in political matters.

While Hanna claims there are two important factors, his “forgetting” the second one implies that money often overshadows all other considerations in the realm of public policy and elections.

It suggests that without significant financial backing, it can be very difficult to gain influence or power within the political system. The quote uses humor to call attention to the disproportionate impact of wealth on governmental decision making and outcomes.

In this view, all other ostensible priorities or platforms may matter little if one does not also have access to large fundraising networks and the ability to spend copiously on campaigns.
