Hillary Watch 2016: The first paid speech

By Richard K. Barry

I have no idea what this means, but Hillary Clinton has signed on for her first paid speech in this her post-Secretary of State phase. CNN is reporting that the speech will be to the National Multi Housing Council in Dallas. No word on how much she will receive. 

The National Multi Housing Council is an organization that represents rental apartment firms. My guess is they have some money to spend. 

Ms. Clinton is with the Harry Walker Agency and, according to CNN, could earn in the six-figure range per appearance.

It's worth noting that she will also deliver unpaid remarks at two events this week, including the Vital Voices Global Leadership Awards in Washington and the Women in the World Summit in New York. 

Just so you know that there is real money in this line of work, Bill Clinton has earned at least $89 million in speech-related income since leaving office.

I'm sure she'd be doing this kind of thing even if she weren't running for president, but she is.
