The former chief of American diplomacy will soon start to travel all over the world giving paid lectures.
The American secretary of state said she “is dreaming to get enough sleep after the four years of hard work”* during her farewell videoconference with the media. However, she quickly hankered for a comeback to the public life, though no longer officially as a politician.
Clinton, who was the most popular politician in her country (outdistancing even president Obama) near the end of her term as secretary of state, has just signed a contract with the company Harry Walker, which organizes paid lectures of known personalities.
The media are speculating if the lectures in front of audiences from the biggest companies are Clinton’s way of preparing for a potential run in the 2016 election. She avoids answering questions concerning this matter, claiming she has not yet made a decision.
She could find out that paid lectures can be a good way to get some funds, thanks to her husband’s example. Former President Bill Clinton has been traveling around the world and honoring conferences and business meetings with his presence. He earned $13.4 million in 2011 alone. He got a record-breaking honor in November 2011 when the company Ericsson decided that his appearance on the conference in Hong Kong was worth $750,000.
