President George W. Bush's political memoir, Decision Points, remains on top of Amazon.com's best-seller list this afternoon. This is the fourth week he has held the top slot. In book sales, the former president far outclassed the current resident of the White House and others who aspire to the address.
As of 2 p.m. today, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s America By Heart continued to sink in the rankings, dropping to No. 29 on the Amazon bestseller list after peaking at No. 2 the week the book was released. She has moved ahead of President Obama, however. His new children's book, Of Thee I Sing, slipped to No. 35.
Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee's children's book, Can't Wait Till Christmas!, currently sits at 2,479. Huckabee told National Journal on Wednesday that he was mulling another run for president but wouldn't decide until late spring at the earliest.
Among other potential presidential candidates:
- Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich saw his historical novel, Valley Forge, jump to No. 90.
- Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal of Louisiana's Leadership and Crisis sits at 1,187.
- Republican Texas Gov. Rick Perry's policy tome Fed Up! dropped to No. 3,260. Perry will head the Republican Governors Association next year, and Jindal has been discussed as a possible vice presidential candidate on the Republican ticket.
As holiday season hits full swing, National Journal will continue to monitor which politicians' titles wind up as stocking stuffers, and which wind up on the sale rack next to the calendars after New Year's.
