"We didn't have this kind of biography in the year 2000"

Carl Bernstein is out pimping his new book on Hillary Clinton. Here, from Media Matters of America, we get a few of his comments as he tries to get people to buy his screed.
"We didn't have this kind of biography in the year 2000, and the country has suffered catastrophically, because they didn't know who or what they were voting for in some instances."
-- Carl Bernstein, Paula Zahn Now, 6/7/06

BILL O'REILLY: I have to tell you, I still don't know what to make of the woman even after -- even after reading the book. That's how complicated this woman is.

CARL BERNSTEIN: That's terrific.
-- The O'Reilly Factor, 6/5/07
Gee. Do you think that Carl will publish a similar set of books on Rudi Giuliani, Mitt Romney, and/or John McCain?

My bet is he won't. Not that the subjects wouldn't be at least as interesting, and certainly are not as well-known, but he probably can't find a wealthy right-wing angel to pay him to write it, pay to get it published (Regnery Press? Knopf Publishing?) and then to buy his books by the gross so that they can give them to the shredders their friends.
