There’s really very little difference between most career polilticians, Republican or Democrat, in office or out, or seeking office or re-election. They’re all pretty much the same.
I guess former President George Bush has been feeling sorry for Hilary since she’s so broke and all. Dubb-ya’s had a bum knee and can’t keep a speaking engagement so Hillary is filling those shoes. It’s a not a problem for the audience, Ameriprise Financial, Inc. (NYSE: AMP), just another big, elite, financial advisor group skimming from Wall Street and in bed with governmen elites; makes no difference to them what stripe (Democrat or Republican) their benefactors are.
This from Drudge:
Bush’s substitute speaker: Hillary Clinton
Former President George W. Bush was supposed to give a speech to Ameriprise Financial conference in Boston next week but had to bow out because he’s recovering from surgery on a bum knee. But the financial services firm was able to secure a prominent substitute speaker: Hillary Clinton.
Clinton’s speech, confirmed by two sources familiar with the event, is the latest in a series of paid speaking-circuit gigs for the former secretary of state and likely 2016 presidential contender, who charges upward of $200,000 to deliver remarks or take part in question-and-answer sessions.
Bush, who has also been on the paid speaking circuit, was anticipated as the main attraction at the event, sources said. But a Bush aide confirmed that he had to drop out after he had a second partial knee replacement surgery last weekend in Chicago. His first surgery, on the other knee, was in May.

BTW, to underscore my point, Jay Carney, President Obama’s last spokes-idiot, retired from that post less than a month is now reportedly pulling down $100,000/speaking gig. Why? Because presumably he’s got inside knowledge that big businesses wants. He’s officially now part of the elite 1% and he did it on the backs of you and me! Talk about inequality.
