Now, if you actually believe that, I have some swamp land I'd like to show you. As for other candidates writing books, ah, well, Newt Gingrich for one, John Kennedy, Al Gore, Garry Hart, George W. Bush... shall I go on? these are just off the top of my head. I mean, she wrote a book, but why not a serious study of foreign policy? THAT would have helped her tremendously.

Really? Books on foreign policy? What countries did they travel to before running?
Kennedy - Profiles in Courage. May have been ghostwritten. Nope. Not foreign policy.
Newt - makes documentaries and wrote Rediscovering God in America. Nope.
Al Gore? LOLOL - An Inconvenient Truth: The Planetary Emergency of Global Warming and What We Can Do About It, The Assault on Reason, Earth in the Balance. Nope. Not foreign policy.
Gary Hart - Under The Eagle's Wing: A National Security Strategy of the United States for 2009. You hit paydirt! Wait. Was that written BEFORE he ran for office? Hm.
George W. Bush - Decision Points. It's a memoir and wasn't written as a candidate.
Well, none of them wrote a foreign policy book BEFORE they ran for office.
And now I'm going to bed. Even if I stayed up all night you wouldn't be able to prove your premise.
Yeah, you should go on. We want to know what CURRENT presidential candidates have met the bar that you're setting for Sarah Palin.
Newt? Gimme a break. That egghead has done nothing BUT write books, since he left Congress.
