(NEWSER)– If she hits the campaign trail as expected, Americans will have all the Hillary Clinton speeches they could possibly want, but for now she charges $300,000, according to communications the Washington Post obtained with a Freedom of Information Act request.

Emails about an appearance at UCLA earlier this year reveal that $300,000 is the reduced rate for public universities, and the Clinton team requested "coffee, tea, room temp sparkling and still water, diet ginger ale, crudité, hummus and sliced fruit," backstage. The meticulous planning included discussion of everything down to the color of the chairs, the emails reveal, and the university had to scramble to find a different podium after Clinton's team rejected one.
