Mr. President, About That Book Proposal...

In August, we learned from The New York Times Magazine that George W. Bush planned on writing a memoir and was “settling” on a ghostwriter. He might not want to sharpen his pencils just yet. The Canadian Press interviews several publishing executives and finds not a one salivating for Bush: My White House Years. “Certainly, the longer he waits, the better,” says Marji Ross, publisher of the conservative outfit Regnery. Ross goes on to add that Regnery will focus on (more) anti-Obama screeds. In Bush’s favor: Richard Nixon became a prolific and best-selling author after his political demise.
