What's really behind Hillary Clinton's latest wave of speeches?

Washington (CNN) - Three speeches, three days.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is starting to look a lot like someone who is picking up the pace of a presidential campaign - complete with the perks and the challenges that come with it.

On Wednesday, she spoke to the University of Buffalo. Thursday, she returned to Washington for her place in the lineup of high-profile public figures at a conference the Center for American Progress was hosting. Friday night she did Colgate University's "distinguished speakers" series in upstate New York.

  2. The DIRTY HIDDEN TRUTH about Obamacare

    After 8 years of Obama destroying our economy and healthcare system, this country would prove it is totally insane by electing another Democrat, especially Hillary Clinton, to be President. We will be signing the death warrant for this country by electing her.

    She has a lot of gall thinking she can be speak on failed policies – she has been the cause of many of them. 2016 isn't enough time to be far removed from this disastrous administration. Gall and callousness.

    Her campaign, of course. It is fully in gear, and underway, and she will be doing that for the next 3 yrs. She has taken Obama;s playbook, and she intends to win, by hook or crook!

    """Her campaign, of course. It is fully in gear, and underway, and she will be doing that for the next 3 yrs. She has taken Obama;s playbook, and she intends to win"""

    Ahhh yesss, Mr. McDaniel – – – indeed she is, indeed she is .......That's who I Voted for, until the country wanted an un-experienced one.....so that's the way it goes....

    well, the positive thing is the fact that at least you've got one with some experience, unlike the current one we've got......I never was in love with Obama, but you know how it goes, when voting time rolls around. It's the same 'ol same 'ol y'know...... when 2008 came & went, it was between the one that voted with the previous one 95% of the time, or it was the new guy, with no experience, and the only thing he had under his belt, was being a community organizer, and a college graduate..... (or else we would have went into ww3) (w/ McCain)

    she's going to do much better than Obama, IF the dems get their way, in 2014..........if they don't, then she will most likely not even throw her hat IN.

    Her ground game will make Obama's ground game look like peanuts, once Obama sends her all of his "contacts" whether it's thru internet contacts, or actual people that will start knocking on doors, in those 6 states that are called "swing states" or the "battleground states"

    Well if it looks like a campaign, sounds like a campaign I would bet its a campaign. That'll be just what we need another lib with a huge agenda to push. And no time to do her job and run our country! Although I do believe she would do her best to do her job and pass budgets and stuff like the president is supposed to do. I believe she is a far better leader than Obama could possibly hope to ever be with one hand tied behind her back.

    Given the right congress I think she knows how to make the system work. But the DC crowd gets further away from us taxpayers every election and I think if elected that would only get worse as it has in the last 4 or 5 elections

    She'll be far too old to be elected President in 2016.

    I am always amused by the Palin haters that don't believe she should be giving paid speeches, but they have no problem when Mrs. Clinton does the same.

    Democrats always win by crook. This looks like another run and will be more distraction. That'll take the heat off Obama the village dummy. And he will make even more screw ups by then, all courtesy of your friends at the Democratic National Committee!

    LOL....Catman-do-do, seriously, you kid right? What planet have you been living on prior to Pres. Obama taking office. ? READ, Learn, Deal with the facts, reality. You must walk around in a stupor induced fog everyday. Brain dead to say the least. You are absolutely stealing from your beneficators, the Koch roaches, but if they pay to post such stupidity, so be it...but ou are absolutely stealing.
