Landing Hillary Clinton for a speaking gig is a pricey venture, as the former secretary of State typically charges a couple hundred thousand dollars per event. And according to a contract obtained by the Las Vegas Review-Journal, securing Clinton also requires the would-be host to let her staff find some accommodations fit, at least in name, for a president.

Emails between Clinton and the University of Nevada concerning a scheduled October speech suggest a typical Clinton contract requires "hotel accommodations selected by Clinton's staff and including 'a presidential suite' for Secretary Clinton."

It's widely known that Clinton made millions in speaking fees since leaving the Obama administration, which has given her fiercest critics a new angle to attack her. Expect to see much more made over the coming months of Clinton's lavish, "presidential" travel.
