She'll bask in the attention, sell lots of books, and get $100K per speech. But the second it becomes hard work, she'll call it quits.Do you think this is what will happen? I mean, if she's just out for money and fame, then we could all stop worrying, right? If she's doing all she's been doing just to fatten up her bank account with no desire to achieve actual political power, that's a huge relief.
