Washington (CNN) - Former president Bill Clinton enjoyed his most lucrative year ever on the speaking circuit in 2010, capping a decade of paid speaking events that has earned him $75.6 million since leaving office in 2001, according to a CNN analysis of federal financial records.
Clinton received $10.7 million for 52 paid speaking engagements last year, a sizable increase from the 36 paid speeches he delivered in 2009 for a total of $7.5 million. The most the former president had previously earned in one year was in 2006 when he earned $10.2 million for 57 events. His 2010 speaking fees were detailed in Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's annual financial disclosure report released Monday.
Almost half of the former president's speech earnings last year, $4.8 million, came from 18 speeches delivered in 13 other countries, ranging in distance from Canada and Mexico to India, the Philippines, and South Africa. The remainder was earned in 34 speeches delivered in eight states and the District of Columbia.

I remember that Reagan was hammered for his fees taking in less than 5% of what Clinton made.
Looks like he’s already occupying Wall Street.
capitalist pig dog- putting profits before people!

Must be his new speaking tour -
“Talkin’ P@ssy AND Gittin’ Some, Plus Score Some Free Coke in a post-Duke University LaCrosse World”......
Nice timing CNN- and kills 2 birds with one stone-giving cover to both clinton and Romney.
Whoi would pay to hear this ass ?
The foreigners are trying to buy influence with the Democrat party. Slick Willy is laughing all the way to the bank.
Not bad for a guy who was writing off his underwear twenty years ago. “Public service” sure does pay well.
Five will get you ten he still is.
“The foreigners are trying to buy influence with the Democrat party.”
Yes. What else could it be?
Even the international Commies realize that Not-So-Slick’s intelligence and insight are hugely overrated.
In the LIEberal mindset then as a RICH person then he should be taken off the Presidential Government pension funded by taxpayers with all those riches. WHo cares how many millions he makes just as long as the taxpayers are spared for subsidizing his retirement too. Public service our ashes.
he really did that as governor?
IIRC, he and Hillary never even owned a home of any type until after he was prez and rolling in the $.
Not bad for a rapist.
Not a bad living for former trailer trash.
An insult to trailer trash.
