Bill and Hillary Clinton launch U.S. tour - "One of a kind conversation"

Bill and Hillary Clinton are taking their show on the road.

The famous political couple, who individually charge well into six figures for an address, is launching a 13-city joint public speaking tour of the U.S. and Canada titled “An Evening with the Clintons” that kicks off Nov. 18 in Las Vegas.

Tickets to see the former president and former secretary of state live on stage aren’t cheap. At the 5,200-seat Park Theater in Las Vegas, the same venue where Lady Gaga will soon have a residency, seats cost between $72.48 and $228.44. And at the Opera House in Boston, tickets go for between $120.50 and $745.50, and that doesn’t include fees to promoter Live Nation.

So what can audience members expect from the show?

“Experience a one-of-a-kind conversation with two individuals who have helped shape our world and had a front seat to some of the most important moments in modern history,” the public relations copy for the tour reads. “From the American presidency to the halls of the Senate and State Department to one of the United States’ most controversial and unpredictable presidential elections, they provide a unique perspective on the past, and remarkable insight into where we go from here.”

The tour will wrap up at the 17,505-seat Forum in Inglewood, Calif., an arena that usually hosts music stars. In the coming days, Drake, Phil Collins and the band twenty one pilots will take the stage there. Also on the schedule, however, is former First Lady Michelle Obama, who will appear in mid-November.

The Clintons aren’t novices on the paid lecture circuit. From 2001 to 2015, they raked in more than $153 million in speaking fees for 729 events. As yet, there is no word on how much the former first couple might make for the Live Nation tour.

Congress started giving former presidents a pension after Harry Truman was so broke that he was forced to do used car commercials or something similar.

If this is to do some part in getting a Democratic win for 2020, then I just hope they have no blunder or push too hard to ensure just their person gets in the primaries. And if this is just for money, then no surprise.

I do think USA should move past the Clintons (though I'm Canadian), but I can say I'm a minimum open to them taking a subdued supportive approach.

Most countries are not allowed to become nuclear powers, having to buy their protection and give up their sovereignity to one of the big three or four powers.

Environmental destruction of the world, global warming, human extinction and several other problems of the world cannot be reduced on a national level, only populists pretend and uneducated people believe so.

She was arguably the most qualified candidate running in 2016.

But in "history" she's somewhere near the back of the pack.

Al Gore was a two-term Congressman, two-term Senator and two-term Vice President. And an Army officer in Vietnam.

Bush The Elder was probably the "most qualified" -- he'd been VP, Head of the CIA, Ambassador to China, Head of the RNC, a Congressman, a naval officer.

Bob Dole had been a Senator for around 30 years when he ran, had headed up the RNC and chaired numerous committees in the Senate (he was House Minority Leader) and was also a WW2 vet

That's just in the past 20 years. The list of candidates more qualified than Hillary Clinton is fairly lengthy.

This is not to take away from her abilities. Just that when you repeat ridiculous lies like that, you give the GOP ammunition.

As per my post at R82, she was possibly the most qualified candidate in the2016 election. (Though an argument could be made that Bernie Sanders, who'd served as a Congressman for 16 years and Senator for 9 years, or John Kasich, who'd been a Congressman for 18 years and governor of Ohio for 5 years were equally as qualified as Clinton, who'd only held elective office for 8 years plus 4 years as SOS.)

Historically, she is somewhere towards the back of the pack.

But that doesn't matter-- Obama was one of the least qualified candidates--ditto JFK and even Bill Clinton--and they made excellent presidents.

I’ve never understood this argument that a resume full of political offices is evidence of being highly qualified for the presidency.

Hillary was elected the President of the most powerful Democracy on Earth. She was robbed by an illiterate, money laundering mobster for Russia Authoritarian Dictator.

Trumps conspiracy w/Putins Cyberwarfare against America is revealing even more evidence that Trump/Putin/Russia stole emails from Clintons campaign that specified targeted demographic voters to feed Russian created propoganda to depress her support.

If Hillary and Bill want to speak with the citizens of this country about Domestic and Global Affairs we should be ALL for it.

FYI Hillary did not come from a family of millionaires, her father owed a small fabric printing shop, her mother was an orphan.

I understand that R103 but I wish people would look at how well a politician did in a previous job rather than just say, “she held all of these offices so she must be qualified.” James Madison was Secretary of State for 8 years. While SoS he endorsed insanely stupid policies regarding our relationship with Great Britain. He of course continued those policies as president with near disastrous results for America. So what I don’t get is why people say, “Apart from her support for the War in Iraq, the Bankruptcy Reform bill, the Patriot Act, and the Wall Street bailout, Hillary’s time in the senate indicates she’s well-qualified to be President.”

Hillary is brilliant. I voted for her, as I have always for Democrats since 1976.

But (yes) 2016 was Joe's time, not hers. There is no "being owed" here; Joe was VP!

And Hillary, with her "We need to admit more Somalians/Syrians/Muslims"; Huma Abedin (with her demonstrably radical mother); Omar's father in prime seating behind HRC at a televised rally; didn't "read the room," as it were.

Yes, she got millions more actual votes, but not where they would have mattered for the Electoral College.

Yes, she campaigned in PA, but not in the Lehigh Valley (erstwhile Bethlehem Steel, plus Mack Trucks and a renaissance for Billy Joel's Allentown), where her husband, Obama, Gore, Kerry, and McGovern (among others) had in their day. Instead, Kaine came, to little notice and avail. The LV then went Red.

Where Hillary goes drama and infighting seems to follow. Reports say the campaign operatives were arguing with each other in the final months and there were many campaign advisers opposed and doubtful of Mook and his overconfidence in polling data/data models. I agree. Hillary should've listened to her husband Bill, one of the most brilliant political campaigners of our time. Don't forget Bill played a huge role in Obama's re-election campaign in 2012 especially with his grand slam convention speech. I don't know why Hillary and her team of millennials decided to downplay him. Youthful arrogance vs expert politicos.

I've always heard that the clintons never got mixed up in Washington society and never did the social circuit while they were in office. Why didn't they? I'm always curious about presidents and first ladies and the Washington society scene and why pretty much all presidents and first ladies stay away from that crowd.

You'd think the first lady would be interested in the political social scene of Washington. And that she'd basically would be the queen of DC society. I'm kinda ignorant when it comes to Washington society can someone with knowledge of that scene please explain why the first couple usually shun Washington society I'm really curious about that whole world.


by Anonymousreply 22010/13/2018

My guess, R220, is that (a) Washington society regarded the Clintons as outsiders; and (b) for their part, the Clintons had better things to do with their time than go to parties.

[quote] Lots of factors were working against Clinton in 2016. The press, voter suppression, Comey, likely hacking (we know the Russians tried).

Yes, but there were even more factors working in her favor. She had more built-in advantages than any previous presidential candidate in history. She went into the campaign with 100% name recognition. Her campaign had raised a shitload of money. She had run for president before and knew what to expect. She had a husband who was a masterful politician and had been elected president twice. And she was endorsed by nearly every newspaper in the country, even newspapers that had traditionally endorsed Republicans. Not to mention the support of nearly everyone in Hollywood. And then she lost.

Both Bill and Hillary are pretty funny and will certainly serve #Illegitimate #TreasonousPOS up on a platter with great wit. They are cool heads, ALWAYS optimists “Thinking about Tomorrow!” strategic thinkers and have certainly watched him and his entire grifting family mob with concern for decades. NYC is THIER TOWN now baby - count on it. They both have volumes to say about how to restore the Institutions of our Democracy: belief in quantifiable facts/truth, Science, Rule of Law/Equal Justice, shared responsibility as the largest Democracy on the planet to support developing Democracy’s, how to counter attacks on a Constitutionally enshrined Free Press.

They also will certainly offer counterweight to the emergence of Nazi’s/KKK, Xenophobia, Racism, overly misogyny and abuse of women, rising authoritarianism at home and in our traditional allies - what bannon calls “populism.”

Bill and Hillary will show us how to recover ourselves, our hope and this countries basic dignity.

She is not owed the presidency.

Americans hate and distrust Washington insiders/ experienced professional politicians and usually elect the Washington newbie and whoever is the underdog in the race for president.

R256: Bill Clinton was a popular President, despite what happened with Monica Lewinsky. For all his faults he left office with fairly high approval ratings. I can't see him liking the prospect of taking a back seat to Madame President. She also would have wanted to forge her own path, so I'm sure his influence within her administration would have been limited. Can you honestly say that a man of Bill Clinton's past achievements would have enjoyed playing a role traditionally reserved for "First Ladies".

It would have been humiliating for him, especially since he was a former POTUS. I'm sure he went all out for her campaign, and if she'd won, he would have likely made the best of it. However, deep down I think he was relieved.

There is no doubt he wanted a post-presidential career. The Clinton Foundation is an example. It also can be argued that the fact he started the foundation upon his exit from government is an example of how he wasn't completely committed to supporting Hillary's career.

"Can you honestly say that a man of Bill Clinton's past achievements would have enjoyed playing a role traditionally reserved for First Ladies."

The role is flexible, R258. Hillary certainly didn't play the part the same way Barbara Bush did, which is when the demonizing of her started. Bill played a major role helping Hillary when she was Sec of State. Lots of really dumb sexism in this thread, really, some of you sound like my 85 year old grandfather.

by Anonymousreply 26310/19/2018

R262/263: Hillary might have not been a traditional First Lady but she wasn't the only one. I remember at the time there was just as much resentment about her role in the Clinton administration - remember the interview she gave about how she could have stayed home and baked the cookies - that made her come across as arrogant and dismissive. The simply truth is no one voted her into office, it was Bill Clinton who became President. She insisted that they be seen as a political team because she's always been incredibly ambitious. That's not sexism it's a fact.

A guy like Bill Clinton has a large ego, he wouldn't have got where he did if he didn't. To become a background player in his own wife's administration would be a huge blow to him on a personal level. It's not like he's always been behind the scenes and she's been the one in politics, he was POTUS for Christ sake. In reality he always probably wanted his political legacy to stand on its own, without the competition and comparison of Hillary becoming the first woman President.

by Anonymousreply 26410/19/2018

Sounds reasonable, R264, but it's not. None of the cabinet members were voted into office either. The "stay home and bake cookies" remark was after Hillary was pressed relentlessly by a reporter asking why she pursued her career instead of being a governor's wife. It was incredibly stupid, and her answer was edited and she came off looking dismissive. This was just the kind of senseless crap the Republicans went after her for.

by Anonymousreply 26510/19/2018

But even stronger was her remark, "You get two for the price of one." As pointed out, we did not elect Hillary Clinton. Early on, Bill tried to give her the healthcare project and she fucked it up so badly that he never let her publicly have another project. She was arrogant at that time as well. She started the healthcare project and never once asked doctors to contribute their input, and so the doctors basically said, "If you're not going to talk with us, we won't accept your stupid healthcare." It was Hillary Clinton that stopped US healthcare dead in its tracks.

Who the hell is Chelsea Clinton? She grew up nowhere: sort of in Arkansas, sort of in DC, now in NYC. She's one of the "homeless" elite. She has no regional ties to anyone/anywhere. She has no likability among any group of people she would need the support of who live in one concentrated geographic region. People don't really warm to her.

But she's smart; she's well-educated; she has the financial stability to chase any whim and the eclat for any door to be opened for her. That's why I say she should shoot for being an appointee, and try to specialize in some particular kind of policy.

I never wanted Barack Obama even though he turned out to be a good president. I am a dyed-in-the-wool Democrat. Hillary would have been a brilliant president. She is smart, intelligent and a great leader. It is an enormous regret and misfortune for the country that she will not be president. But if she ever ran again, I would vote for her again.

Hillary is also presidential and has respect for the office, something the current White House resident does not have and of which he is ignorant. The current resident is a thug, slimy criminal and moron. Having said all that, I'm hoping that Kamala Harris or Corey Booker will defeat the current White House resident (see below for my favorite). I think that Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders, while capable and good men, are too old and part of the old guard. old faces.
