I have seen Bill Clinton, George W Bush, and Condelezza Rice speak in front of massive convention audiences of 15k-20k IT nerds. If you told me they each made 500k for those engagements I would not be surprised at all. Conferences like this are usually around 3000/head so there is a ton of cash to pay folks like this

E.g. Clinton

Probably about 4 years ago Bill Clinton came through my home town (Victoria, British Columbia) to give a speech. Being a (relatively) respected ex President and Rhodes scholar (aka smarty pants) he managed to draw a crowd of at least 10,000 filling a local stadium. Tickets having cost upwards of $175 per person, just to see a guy speak for 75 minutes, doing the math he made 1.75 million for ONE speaking engagement! After 100 speeches he's made $175 million even without wallstreet/corporate interest backing. They still could be on top of their speaking engagements, and Hillary's comments were incredibly ignorant and ridiculous, but wanted to make a point that they are able to generate that sort of income all on their own!
LOVE you guys.
