Obama’s wife, former first lady Michelle Obama, will also pen a memoir. It’s widely speculated that she’ll make more than the $8 million Hillary Clinton got in 2000 for her memoir.

In 2010, George W. Bush got $7 million for his memoir and Bill Clinton got $15 million — a presidential record — for 2001’s My Life.
