CLINTON'S POST-WHITE HOUSE PLANS TAKING SHAPE
President Clinton intends to earn large sums of money after he leaves the White House -- by delivering speeches at up to $125,000 per appearance and possibly by serving as a consultant to the investment banking industry, the WASHINGTON POST is planning to report in Wednesday editions.
According to publishing sources, the POST's Charles Babington details the president's post-White House plans in a Page One Scream.
Once he leaves office in January 2001, at age 54, Clinton says he plans to divide his time between Little Rock, residing at an apartment or house and New York state.
The president also is planning to launch something called the "Clinton School" -- where about two dozen students a year will earn master's degrees in public policy, following a wide-ranging curriculum that will include projects in other states and nations.
Clinton hasn't talked much about the details, but he and his wife helped design the program, University of Arkansas officials tell the paper.

But... but... are you saying there's some form of private connection between government and big business?
That would be selfish and immoral, surely?
Nah, I just can't see that being true. Someone would notice, wouldn't they? And then no one would vote for him in the next elect...
Ah. I think I see the problem.
(Hint: irony. You have to imagine the pursed lips.)

Clinton Plans: Stay Busy, Make Money
" ... After spending virtually all his working life in public office, sources familiar with the president's plans said Clinton also intends to earn large sums of money by delivering speeches at up to $125,000 per appearance and possibly by serving as a consultant to the investment banking industry.
... Clinton's financial picture could brighten even more dramatically if his lawyers prevail in an expected bid for government reimbursement of all or part of the $5 million he and his wife owe in legal fees, which stem from various investigations during his presidency ... "
IT ALL COMES DOWN TO MONEY $$$$$$$$$$$
Can't warn the public about Y2K when it could rock the stock market. Or miff the banking industry, or investment banking industry.
Who cares if millions freeze, burn, melt, suffocate, dehydrate, choke, starve, bleed, die, suffer, go bankrupt, become homeless, etc.
If you suck up you could suck in $$$$$$ ! And NOTHING is going to interfere with that!

1) Look at all of his previous investment experience...let's see, there was Whitewater, and....and?
2) I'm wondering how he will eke by on an average of less than $60,000 per year from speaking engagements...
3) re: The Clinton School. "include projects in other states and nations." Yep, get any students who are following his ideas out of town!

Yo people, for once Bill is right. His legal expenses should be shouldered by the public. I have the right solution, split his legal fees evenly among that sixty percent that voted to keep him in the big white house regardles of his activities. Let those who love him so pay for their hero. Regardless of what he did that same sixty something percent voted the same way on all the polls, and in the election. Let them take care of their darling, not the rest of us.
