Hillary and being broke
 
I am beginning to feel pretty bad about my POV on Hillary. When you realize in the time since wild Bill left office with the family dead ass broke, she had done remarkably well in a short time. Im glad she has opened up and allowed us to feel her pain as they clawed out of the hole. And when Bill said they actually go to a grocery store on weekends, it was like damn! They are just like us!!



Hillary Clinton: We Were 'Dead Broke' Upon Leaving White House

In an interview with ABC's Diane Sawyer slated to air Monday night, Hillary Clinton revealed that she and former President Bill Clinton were "dead broke" when they left the White House.

During one of their last years in the White House, the Clintons reportedly earned $416,039, the New York Daily News reports, citing the couple's 1999 federal income tax return. But apparently that was not enough to cover their debts and their daughter's education.

“We came out of the White House not only dead broke, but in debt," Clinton told Sawyer. “We had no money when we got there and we struggled to, you know, piece together the resources for mortgages, for houses, for Chelsea’s education. You know, it was not easy.”

According to Mother Jones, just before she left the White House as first lady, Hillary was given an $8 million advance for her memoir Living History. The couple had also purchased two homes, one in Washington, D.C., and another in Chappaqua, New York, Time reports.

Speaking engagements and books deals quickly began bringing in money. From from 2000 to 2007, the couple earned more than $109 million, according to an NPR report. A large portion of that income came from Bill's speaking engagements. Since leaving the White House, the former president reportedly has earned $106 million from speaking fees, a 2013 CNN report notes.

In the last 15 months since Hilary left her post as secretary of state, she has made $5 million from a pricey speaking circuit.

When asked how the American public might view her hefty price tag for speaking appearances (reportedly $200,000 apiece), Hillary told Sawyer, “I thought making speeches for money was a much better thing than getting connected with any one group or company as so many people who leave public life do.”

Diane Sawyer's full interview with Hillary Clinton airs June 9 at 9 p.m. ET on ABC. Watch a portion of the appearance below.

She reasonates with the common man better than Romney. I know this because my tv told me so.

It must've been very embarrassing for an ex-president and his wife to stand in line at the soup kitchen.

Lives of hardship and toil.

Hillary Clinton doesn't have a single redeemable quality.

Instead of being Grandma-like adorable, she's Kris Jenner-like manipulative, greedy bitch.

I like my old ladies to be sweet and make me cookies.

I don't want them to be Charlie Harper's mom.

That, ladies and gentlemen, is why Hillary Clinton should never be president.

This place will be hilarious when she is President.

MahiMike 06-25-2014 09:27 PM

Still can't believe Hussein beat her out. It was almost as bad as bush beating out gore.

Cochise 06-25-2014 09:33 PM

Didn't they put a down payment on a house of several million dollars right before they left office? Maybe that's why they were "broke".

It will be, after Direckshun ripped W for the war that she voted for and the recession that occurred when she was in the Senate

Dumb even for you.

Prison Bitch 06-25-2014 10:01 PM

Yeah but you're a stupid person. The war vote lost her the nomination. In Oregon, Iraq was the number one factor (41%) among Democrats. You are free to disprove the importance of that if you'd like

I imagine "the recession that occurred when she was in the Senate" is really going to hurt her.
