Scooter's Money and Scotty's Book


Some random tidbits: Scott McClellan, the former White House spokesman, is shopping a book proposal around and hopes to land a deal this month. He tells us that it will be a "candid look at the president, the press, and defining events." Also writing a book: Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, on his roots in Searchlight, Nev.—"13 brothels and no churches"—and how he got to Washington. And what about this news from former Sen. Fred Thompson, the Law & Order star who's thinking about a presidential bid: He's planning more fundraisers for convicted perjurer Lewis "Scooter" Libby. Friends say it will help him show conservatives that he not only believes in the Bush team but is not a fair-weather friend.
