Hillary Clinton Gets 2nd Carlyle Interview

Politico Magazine reported on December 11, 2013:

In Manhattan last week, Hillary Clinton sat down with the Carlyle Group’s David Rubenstein for their second question-and-answer session in the last two months.

Unlike the first one, held for his private equity firm’s investor conference, this was a more public appearance, part of a program honoring the late diplomat Richard Holbrooke at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Hillary easily regaled the well-heeled crowd with stories from her past before Rubenstein ended their half-hour chat with a joke about her future: Would she be interested in joining a private equity firm?

“Is that an offer?” Clinton asked, laughing as the audience knowingly joined in. She may soon need many things from the titans of finance, but a job is probably not one of them.

The PEU boys are happy to pay her $200,000 per speech as she positions for the Presidency in 2016.  It pays to stay on Hillary's good side as her staffers hold grudges for the disloyal.

Bill Clinton enriched the big money boys while President and they've returned the favor several times over.  Bill frequently pushes PEU positions on aid and taxes.  Beware the Clinton sleaze, which seems to be unending.

Update 3-2-14:  The Daily Star noted Hillary's taking big money in speaking fees from modern day robber barons.  The paper is not in Lebanon, New Hampshire but the Middle East Lebanon.

Update 3-22-14:  HuffPo expressed concern about Clinton's speaking fees.
