I’ve tried to get in a position where, you know, … I’ll be able to do what she did when I was president—that is, I don’t want to spend any time making a living. – Bill Clinton

WASHINGTON – Former President Clinton, who might someday be the first spouse, traveled the globe last year, making more than $10 million giving speeches at corporate retreats, trade group gatherings and motivational venues.
The speaking engagements and their top-dollar fees were detailed in Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton’s Senate financial disclosure report, made public Thursday. The report showed that the former president and his presidency-seeking wife had assets of at least $10 million, but could have as much as $50 million with no liabilities.
When it comes to family affluence, the reports show that the New York senator is the wealthiest of all members of Congress seeking the presidency. Among all presidential candidates, however, Republican Mitt Romney, the former Massachusetts governor, stands alone with assets of between $190 million and $250 million. Republican Rudy Giuliani and Democrat John Edwards have each reported assets of about $30 million.
