Clinton Racks Up Speaking Fees

The Washington Post reports Hillary Clinton has given or has scheduled at last 14 speeches, for which she charges $200,000 per appearance.

"As a former secretary of state and U.S. senator, Clinton is following a path well-worn by retired politicians such as her husband -- who has racked up tens of millions of dollars in speaking fees since leaving office -- and by State Department predecessors such as Condoleezza Rice, Colin Powell and Madeleine Albright. But the extent of Clinton's speaking schedule, and the size of her standard fee, is more unusual for someone considering a run for president."
