I wrote about W’s retirement plans the other day, and Roger Ebert follows that up in his review of the new Jimmy Carter film, Man From Plains. He quotes Bush and then follows with his own observation:
“I’ll give some speeches to replenish the ol’ coffers — I don’t know what my dad gets; it’s more than $50,000-$75,000 per speech — Clinton’s making a lot of money.” In another interview, Bush noted Clinton’s recent work with the U.N. and said that after he retired, “You won’t catch me hanging around the U.N.”
I wrote about that in my report from Toronto, closing with the reflection that everyone should choose the retirement plan that is right for him.
Good to have Roger back, I can’t say that enough.
