    People from the north who went south for monetary opportunities, the hillbillies called them carpetbaggers because their luggage was made from old carpet.

    Hillary Clinton moving to NY was called a carpet bagger.

    She has also been called a carpet muncher.

    When Hillary Clinton moved to NY so that she could run for the Senate from NY. It's people who move from one place to another and then claim to be from the new place so they can benefit from it.

    God damn, what country did you go to school in?

    After the civil war in the US, people came from the north to take advantage of the war torn South. They cheated people out of their money. They often brought their belongings in a suitcase made out of carpet. Thus the name carptebaggers. A carpetbagger is someone who moves in the area to take advantage of a situation. Like when there are tornadoes in an area, itinerant roofers move into the area. Those roofers are often accused of being a carpetbagger. Hillary Clinton does not fit the traditional definition of the word but it has morphed into her situation.

    You should have learned that by 8th grade. Or you could have Googled it.
