(CNN) - Could Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin be coming to a bookstore or television near you?
Palin has reportedly hired a powerful Washington, DC attorney who has successfully landed lucrative media deals for other political rock stars, a signal the former Republican vice presidential candidate may be interested in further expanding her media exposure in the coming months.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Palin has secured the services of Robert Barnett, the Washington lawyer who negotiated highly profitable book deals for Bill and Hillary Clinton. (Bill Clinton was paid $10 million by Alfred A. Knopf publishing to write his memoirs and Hillary Clinton garnered $8 million by Simon & Schuster to write hers.)
Barnett has also negotiated book deals for President Obama and Obama campaign manager David Plouffe, and has landed lucrative television contracts for many high-profile network anchors and correspondents.
Barnett would not confirm or deny that he is now working for Palin. Palin's office did not respond to a request for comment.
Several publishers have said Palin could fetch up to $7 million to write a book about her unlikely VP bid, and could rake in millions more as a television host after her gubernatorial term ends in 2010.
But should Palin decide on a presidential run, federal election regulations would almost certainly keep her from hosting a television show.
does Goo Be Gone work on a Palin? We should try and see if it will remove Sarah from public view. No one cares! Go take care of your kids
some people love Gov. Palin, and attacking her family with hateful smears, and lies. Only makes you look like an idiot.
what an opportunist...
That wardrobe was purchased by the McCain 2008 campaign for the Republican National Convention and Sarah Palin was told to wear the clothes bought for her. They were all returned to the campaign plane after the Election and donated to charity. As for Sach’s and Neimann Marcus, Sarah Palin said in an interview afterwards that she has NEVER SET FOOT IN EITHER STORE, EVER. If you heard nasty rumors on the Internet about her family walking around the high-end stores like the “Beverly Hillbillies”, buying anything and everything in sight, these are OUTRIGHT FABRICATIONS of people that hate Sarah Palin and want to bring her down.
IS SARAH PALIN SMOKING CRACK AGAIN? OR –IS SHE HAVING AN ORGANISM? SARAH--ASK NOT WHAT YOUR COUNTRY CAN DO FOR YOU BUT AS A GONERNOR ASK WHAT YOU CAN DO FOR YOUR COUNTRY. NFG
I might check it out from the library but I sure as heck won't spend my money to buy her book!
They could probably print about 2000 copies and not sell them all. Really...who does care?
I really can't imagine any publisher paying her much for a joke book.
Will it be a coloring book?
Was there ever such an amazing lady...with such grace and kindness. Then add to that all the attacks of the media that keep coming.
Right – Sara Palin in 2012. I'd love to see that jerk try to unseat an incumbent president.
Reading all the books and magazines in the world and taking vacations to foreign lands will not hold a candle to a Magna Cum Laude Lawyer, constitutional scholar, and 4-year experienced president. What a joke–yeah, go ahead, make yourself the laughing stock just like you were during the 2008 campaign. If you think you were handled badly then, you ain't seen nothing yet!!!!!
She should co-write it with Joe-the-Plumber. They could title it "Beauty and the Least."
As Governor Palin's position as CIC is rather unique, she receives regular briefings from Homeland Security, as well as other agencies. Govern Palin has a rather high security clearance as well. Something neither Obama nor Biden had prior to their win.
Please go away.
What will be the title???? Maybe: I can See Russia from the Bridge to Nowhere???? ROFLOL.
Will her book come with the crayons to color in it ?
Now she needs to find a good illustrator . . .
She can put it in the Bush library , under comedy
You Deserve it Lady.... Two-Volumes Plus.
Wow! A whole book of Palinisms. Let's see if she can progress her book like she is going to progress our country. This will keepTina Fey in material for years and years.
A coloring book, perhaps? Connect-the-dots? Yeah, connect-the-dots would be cool.... look, it's Joe the Plumber looking at Russia from Palin's house. Dear Lord, will this narcissist ever fade away?
wow, look at all the fake liberals who didn't listen to Obama's speech, could you be more petty or childish. The people making these hate filled comments are exactly what's wrong with this country, and show truly that you don't support President Obama.
Will it come with Crayons ?
This is the last I want to hear from this idiot. I will read no furthur news about her and if they media decide to do more useless stories on her I will simply change channels. She is doing nothing but using the media to stay in the lime light so the Repugs can make another fumble and run her for president.
A poster below shows the typical ignorance from the [R]ight. They equate conservatives with the rightwing which is a FALSE equation. I've got no problems with real conservatives, but I'll continue to crush you hyper-partisan rightwing neo-tards like the bugs you are.
Sarah Palin and Ann Coulter-geist are a pair. Enough said.
