Public Service

Pays rather better than I remember:

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, have made $109 million since 2000.

Being a pro-free market libertarian I don't begrudge them the money, but I found the next part interesting:

The couple paid taxes of $33 million and gave more than $10 million to charity between 2000, their last year in the White House, and 2007, the records released by the campaign showed.

That's an effective tax rate of 30%. I'd bet the Clintons, like Warren Buffett, have employees with higher effective tax rates.
