Hillary Clinton Joins the Speaking Circuit; Gets Reported $200K

Wednesday, 24 Apr 2013 11:19 AM

By Courtney Coren

Hillary Clinton sets out on the next stage in her life on Wednesday as a highly paid speaker.

The former First Lady, senator and secretary of state will give her first paid speech since stepping down from the cabinet at the National Multi-Housing Council in Dallas.

And with a reported price tag of $200,000 for the talk, it sets the scene for a lucrative new line for her.

It is expected that Clinton’s focus will remain on women’s issues in her public appearances, but she most likely won’t say anything very different than she has at forums in recent weeks.

“I think the expectation can be pretty low, because her value is both as a celebrity and as someone . . . quite familiar and conversant on world affairs,” Jeff Gerth, co-author of “Her Way: The Hopes and Ambitions of Hillary Clinton,” told Politico.

“And I think she’ll be cautious in whatever she says, which has been her trademark for at least the last couple of decades, ever since she said, ‘I’m not gonna stay home and bake cookies,’” Gerth added.

It is likely that Clinton will give some version of Wednesday’s speech several times prior to the 2016 presidential election, although she’s not expected to say much about her future plans.
