Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton smiles before speaking on American leadership at the Council on Foreign Relations in Washington, Thursday, Jan. 31, 2013.

— Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton will give paid speeches now that she's left the government.

The Manhattan-based Harry Walker Agency says on its website that Clinton has joined it exclusively for her future speaking engagements.

The agency represents high-profile figures who give paid speeches to organizations, conferences and companies. Its roster includes Clinton's husband and the former president, Bill Clinton; former Secretary-General of the United Nations Kofi Annan; and Bono of the band U2.

It is not uncommon for prominent former public figures to join the lucrative speech circuit after leaving office. According to Senate disclosure forms Hillary Clinton filed in 2008, Bill Clinton has been paid as much as $290,000 per speech.

Representatives for the Harry Walker Agency and Clinton did not immediately return messages seeking comment.

Don't these folks get tired of constantly making money, money, money from their so-called public service. It is a disgrace.

What do you want to bet that Bill and Hillary pay "their fare share of taxes" ..... yeah, like Obama, makes a million but pays 16%.
Tax and spend liberals.
