    Palin's first book due out November 17th - already over 1.5 million copies ordered...



    By HILLEL ITALIE, AP National Writer Hillel Italie, Ap National Writer

    NEW YORK – That was fast.

    Sarah Palin, the former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate, has finished her memoir just four months after the book deal was announced, and the release date has been moved up from the spring to Nov. 17, her publisher said.

    "Governor Palin has been unbelievably conscientious and hands-on at every stage, investing herself deeply and passionately in this project," said Jonathan Burnham, publisher of Harper. "It's her words, her life, and it's all there in full and fascinating detail."

    Palin's book, her first, will be 400 pages, said Burnham, who called the fall "the best possible time for a major book of this kind."

    Harper, an imprint of HarperCollins, has commissioned a huge first printing of 1.5 million copies. Sen. Ted Kennedy's "True Compass," published by Twelve soon after his Aug. 25 death, also had a 1.5 million first printing...

    You are right. We are scared to death. You guys should definately nominate her in 2012.

    After all, as I heard one of our local conservative talkers say yesterday: "She's been to China, now she has foreign policy experience!"
