Toronto Dominion is a Canadian bank which also operates south of the border under the amusing name of "TD - America's Most Convenient Bank®". It's certainly proved remarkably convenient for Bill Clinton. TD has paid millions to the future first First Gentleman of the United States, during his wife's tenure as Secretary of State and in her ongoing role as designated President-in-Waiting.
What exactly are they paying for? Speeches? He's less dull a public speaker than the average politician, or average former president (Gerald Ford, say). But nothing he says would seem to merit, for example, the $525,000 TD paid Bill in one 24-hour period alone, which convenience-wise is about as good as it gets. So again: what exactly are TD getting for their shareholders by putting all this money in the Clintons' pockets?
I've nothing against top stars or even lowly fellows like myself seeking top dollar for live appearances, but there is something unseemly about a former president pimping himself out to Gulf emirs and Saudi princes and even Canadian bankers for six-figure sums night after night. Hitherto, it has never been necessary explicitly to prohibit such conduct because it would have never occurred to, oh, Harry Truman to carry on like this.
~But don't worry, when it comes to her own robotic speeches, Mrs Clinton gives all her $225,000 checks from state universities to charity. So that's okay. Oh, by the way, any charity in particular?
