No, the protocol officer flunked briefing you there. :)

Once a President always a President. If you ever have a Very Large Cheque to
waste on an after dinner speaker remember this, otherwise Mr President Ford,
Mr President Carter or Mr President Bush may decline the invitation.

On the other hand you could fire the protocol officer, split the money 50/50
and I'll do the speaking engagement. I doubt anyone will really care.

(Appologies for the trivia)
