No Wonder Thompson Ran for President...

... his life post-Bush Administration looks pretty boring in comparison:

Thompson earned more than $2.52 million in [consulting] fees from a variety of companies. The largest amount, just over $1 million, came from New York-based Deloitte & Touche.

Some of these fees were associated with sitting on the board of directors of firms. The report shows 31 different entities with which Thompson has some involvement. Among them are pharmaceutical giant Novartis, which paid Thompson $200,000 in consulting fees; McKinley Reserve, a Milwaukee investment company, which paid him $150,000; and Kikkoman soy sauce manufacturer, which paid him $50,000.

... zzz ... zzz ... zzz -- What? Oh, sorry ... he also made money giving speeches in front of health care-related organizations and ... zzz ... zzz ... zzz.
