The Washington Post, perhaps inspired by the recent mini-controversy over Hillary Clinton's alleged rich-person out-of-touchness, has a thorough report on Bill Clinton's high-paying speaking career. He's made $104.9 million on an amazing 542 speeches in locations ranging from the United States to China to Israel to Nigeria. The Post has also put the data in nifty graphic form—you can mouse over each data point, one per speech, to found out where and when it took place and how much Clinton made. The ocean of dots makes its own striking point about how much money is available for those willing to cash in on their experience in public service:
