Former President Bill Clinton's international business dealings, global foundation and penchant for going off script could present a significant obstacle to Hillary Clinton becoming secretary of state, observers say.
Bill makes millions of dollars a year speaking to the richest of the rich about human rights violations, which some of the donors to his foundation are responsible for. He has done a lot of good work, though. One of his main focuses is eradicating AIDS in Africa. Good on you, Bill.
The potential problem is, though, that if there's one thing Bill Clinton loves, it's being loved. And giving out $500 million is a good way to get people to like you. But because of conflicts of interest of raising money in foreign countries, Bill might have to slow down, which is not one of his strong suits. From the NY Times:
“The problem is it’s going to require some sacrifice by him,” said a former Clinton aide who is not involved in the discussions but did not want to be identified because the talks are confidential. “If he’s not willing to do that, it could blow up.”
Is ruining Hillary's life 4 or 5 times already enough for him, or will he go for one more?
