Bush hitting the speakers' circuit

From NBC's Abby Livingston

First Read stumbled onto this -- President George W. Bush is hitting the speakers' circuit, as is former First Lady Laura Bush.  
 
The Web site pitches the former president this way: "George W. Bush offers his thoughts on eight years in the Oval Office, the challenges facing our nation in the 21st century, the power of freedom, the role of faith, and other pressing issues."

The former first lady is pitched as: "One of the most popular first ladies in history, is a compelling advocate for issues of national and global concern."
 
Calls to the company representing the former president, the Washington Speakers Bureau, have not yet been returned. However, ex-presidents typically net north of $100,000 when making speeches.
