Clinton Fee Raises Bar On Speaker Circuit

Not only can former President Bill Clinton sell out a venue, he is expected to earn $200,000 for a speech he is to deliver January 14, making him the highest paid on the celebrity-speaker circuit, according to the New York Post.

Clinton is one of four speakers in a lecture series sponsored by Los Angeles' University of Judaism. When all of the Santa Monica Civic Center's 2,500 tickets went SRO, the lecture was moved to Universal Amphitheater with a general capacity of 6,191, which sold out as well.

Tickets for the four-speaker series is $180. Other speakers in the series include former Prime Minister Ehud Barak, former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and Democratic Party strategist James Carville.

Clinton reportedly was earning $100,000 per speech before the bar was risen with this appearance.

Clinton is represented by the Harry Walker Agency in New York.
