Clinton Speaking Fees

 NYT Editorial Demands Mrs. Clinton Show Voters Those Transcripts
Thoughts on the NYT editorial:
 Industry meetings invite outside speakers all the time and pay what the market will bear. For the outside speaker, these are more like performances, not meetings. The Clintons are the super rock stars of our age who can command high speaking fees based on who they are and how well they can engage a live audience, far better than almost any other public figures. Hillary Clinton was presumably paid the high market value of her appearances whlie a private citizen. Sad to say, this is yet another fishing expedition. Why would there be transcripts of performances? And if there are no transcripts, is that the next manufactured scandal?
