(Newser) – Hillary Clinton's memoir of her time as secretary of state is on its way, with Simon & Schuster announcing the deal today and tentatively aiming to publish it in June 2014, reports USA Today. Financial details of the book were not disclosed, but Clinton earned $8 million for her 2003 book, Living History. As yet untitled, Clinton's new book will look at the killing of Osama bin Laden, the Arab Spring, and "the urgent, ongoing need for American leadership in a changing world," according to Simon & Schuster. The book and its associated publicity tour is expected to fuel speculation over a potential run at the presidency in 2016.

Republicans governors and Republicans in Congress should be shaking in their boots. If Hillary runs for President, the war on women and passing unconstitutional laws against women will be a highlight of her candidacy. The more Americans find out about how social conservatives are destroying lives, the more support Hillary will get.

Please keep up the chatter about the Benghazi hoax. All that righty finger pointing secured the election for Obama and got Mrs. Clinton her highest approval ratings ever. C'mon. More please.

Ka-ching. Don't ever worry about high level "public servants." They get huge deferred compensation.
