Hillary Clinton Hits The Public Speaking Circuit, Writes Memoir, Plans Presidential Run
Does the “Guinness Book of World Records” have a category for “shortest retirement EVER?” Less than a month after “retiring” as President Barack Obama’s secretary of state, word is out that Hillary Clinton’s hitting the paid speaking circuit this spring.
Clinton also quipped that she plans on “catching up on about 20 years of sleep deprivation.” The memoir will focus on Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State, during which she traveled to a record 112 countries and flew 956,733 air miles to implement U.S. foreign policy and heal wounds caused by George W. Bush’s administration. Clinton has also written two best-sellers, “It Takes a Village” (1996) and “Living History” (2003). Clinton’s new book and public speaking engagements will highlight her many accomplishments and keep her in the public eye, as she prepares for the presidential race in 2016. Although Clinton still won’t officially comment on that, one of her top donors confirmed last week that she plans to run.

4. Great news!
Hillary as our nominee against top contenders in the GOP like Rubio or Christie would put states like Texas and Kentucky into play!
I'm not just excited about Hillary, but also for Bill being back on the campaign trail! Some may criticize some of this actions as being too "right-leaning" or "conservative", but he has been a POWERHOUSE for our party, and was a great and popular president to boot!
