It’s true, it’s looking like the Obamas could be on a path to surpass the Clinton’s wealth.
Do I see “The Obama Foundation” coming soon on the horizon? If you see that, you’ll know where the swamp is spending their money!
Here are more the details from HeatSt:
Could the Obamas become even richer than the Clinton after leaving the White House? Yes, it could happen.
“There’s no doubt Obama’s memoir will go for more than any president’s has ever gone,” publishing executive Esther Newberg told THR. Presidential historian Julian Zelizer cited the “broader fascination with Obama” as driving force behind the hefty advance expectations.
Former First Lady Michelle Obama, meanwhile, is expected to “easily” surpass the $8 million book advance Hillary Clinton received in the wake of the Monica Lewinsky scandal.
Former President Obama recently told his former senior adviser David Axelrod that finishing his (third) memoir will be a top priority after leaving the White House. His first two memoirs, Dreams From My Father (1995) and The Audacity of Hope (2008) sold a combined 5 million copies.
