(CNN) – After former President George W. Bush had to cancel an upcoming speech at a conference because of knee surgery, Hillary Clinton has agreed to speak instead.
Politico's Maggie Haberman, who's also a political analyst for CNN, reports that Clinton will speak at the Ameriprise Financial conference in Boston next week as Bush recovers from a second partial knee replacement surgey he had last weekend in Chicago. He had surgery on this other knee in May.
Clinton has been active on the paid speaking circuit since she stepped down from her post as secretary of state last year and as she considers a 2016 presidential bid.
"You kind of get the impression that Hillary Clinton will talk to any audience that is willing to hear from her at this point. It doesn't matter if it's universities, insurance groups, doctors. She'll talk to anybody right now," Julie Pace of the Associated Press said Thursday on CNN's "Inside Politics" with John King.
