According to the Times of London (which quoted vague sources), Alaska governor Sarah Palin is only a heartbeat away from selling a book for nearly $7 million. Bill Clinton, you’ll recall, earned $10 million for his autobiography, My Life. If Palin, who was on the national stage for barely three months, gets nearly as much as he did after being president of the United States for eight years, then we will eat our hockey helmets.
