    Default UNLV students ask Hillary to return $225,000 speaker fee

    One has to ask... why would someone making $200,000.00 or more for each speaking engagement want to be POTUS????

    I wouldn't pay 2 cents to hear her babble. But some would...

    Former Secretary of State and expected 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is poised to get paid $225,000 to speak at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas, leaving some students outraged.

    I was at an international trade show in Denver a few weeks ago and she was the key note speaker. Like her or not, she is captivating to hear. She rec'd the same $$$ to speak there as well. Ive seen a lot of politicians speak and they are all very good at it. BUT - Terry Bradshaw was the best

    I can understand the students concern, it is a lot of money. However why would you hire her to speak and then complain about the amount agreed on and ask for a refund. That was done in poor taste. Hillary ought to cancel the speaking engagement altogether, that would be the most appropriate recourse.
    During break time at obedience school, two dogs were talking.
    One said to the other..."The thing I hate about obedience school is you learn ALL this stuff you will never use in the real world."

    Out of context my friend. She said broke after Bill left the white house, not now.

    I missed this same sentiment when Rutgers leftys trashed Condi Rice.

    It's coming from the student body that probably had no say in the matter. I believe they have an right to express their opinion the same way students and staff at Rutgers did with Candy.

    The sudents did not hire her. Think about being a student and ACTUALLY paying your bill. I would be furious if one dime of my money went for this gabage!
    As a taxpayer you should be too. WE now are forced to forgive our stolen money on loans after so many years. What a theft!
