After slamming a DC culture of “special interests” during an appearance in Chicago on Monday, former President Obama will now reportedly rake in some $400,000 for a speech at a Wall Street event. Huffington Post Editor-in-Chief Lydia Polgreen wants to know something:

@lpolgreen Because Hillary Clinton wasn't available?
