Week In Politics: Texas Gov. Perry In Hot Water, Clinton’s Pricey Speaking Perks

President Barack Obama is back in Washington, D.C. to handle the crises in Iraq and Ferguson, Missouri.

And it’s been revealed that Hillary Clinton’s recent contracts require a presidential suite and private jet for her speaking gigs.
