75. Interesting Washington Post take on this.
In the past eight years, Bill and Hillary Clinton earned a combined $109 million, with the former president collecting nearly half of that money as a speaker hired at times by companies that have been among his wife's most generous political supporters.

That looks like a very convenient arrangement to me. Campaign finance laws limit how much the fat cats can contribute to the Clinton campaign, so instead they hire Bill to speak and get more money to the Clintons that way, skirting the campaign finance laws.
