The news that Hillary Clinton has earned what the Washington Post characterized as "close to $500,000" for two recent speeches to Goldman Sachs is generating a certain amount of excitement. Ira Stoll says that after the Obama presidency, perhaps Americans would find it refreshing to have a president, like Hillary Clinton, who doesn't seem hostile to business. Still, voters will seek reassurance that Mrs. Clinton's enthusiasm for profits extends beyond those earned by her clients, her husband, and herself.
