Hillary Clinton is going to have a real problem running for president as a woman of the people. And the evidence mounts by the day.
First, you’ll recall her hilarious claim of being “dead broke” upon leaving the rent-free White House in 2001 and confronting mortgages on two mansions. We’ve all heard about her scores of strictly-controlled, quarter-million dollar speeches to every convention of scrap metal dealers and the like since jumping off the sinking S.S. Obama last year.
Now comes a most amazing compilation of regal needs and demands before the ex-first lady, ex-senator, ex-secretary of State will condescend to accept up to $10,000 per minute to address her countrymen.
It took a Freedom of Information case to get at the secret details of the negotiations and demands for last March’s Clinton appearance at UCLA. But two Washington Post reporters have uncovered a revealing compendium of both grandiose and petty requirements which university hosts had to meet in order to enjoy the brief presence of Clinton and a bevy of her aides.
