Clinton, Palin Remain in the Spotlight

Not staying off the political stage for too long, two of the most recognizable women in politics are heading back into the spotlight.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is expected to bring in six-figure speaking fees and has signed on with the same agency as her husband, Former President Bill Clinton. She will start making paid appearances this spring.

Democratic strategist Emily Tisch Sussman says the speaking circuit is a great way for her to keep name out there. "Women do still need to work to constantly keep themselves relevant if they want to be setting themselves up for their next move," Sussman said on Jansing & Co.

On the Republican side, Sarah Palin is returning to Washington next month, speaking at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference, or CPAC.

"I think this speech is a really critical speech for her in terms of where she goes in terms of discourse," Republican strategist David Winston told Chris Jansing on Jansing & Co.  He's wondering whether Palin's public voice will end up being personality based or focused more on content.
