Ron Paul, Best-Selling Author
Posted on May 1, 2008
Looks like there may be life after the campaign trail. Presidential hopeful Ron Paul, who has kept swinging long after media types started calling Sen. John McCain “the Republican presumptive nominee,” has a best-seller on his hands with his new book, “The Revolution: A Manifesto”—at least according to Amazon.com’s list of top titles.
CNN.com’s “Political Ticker:”
“The Revolution: A Manifesto”, released earlier this month, is currently No. 1 on the Web site’s list of top sellers, besting even Oprah’s latest Book Club selection.
“Despite a media blackout, this septuagenarian physician-turned-congressman sparked a movement that has attracted a legion of young, dedicated, enthusiastic supporters ... a phenomenon that has amazed veteran political observers and made more than one political rival envious,” boasts the book’s product description, adding: “Candidates across America are already running as ‘Ron Paul Republicans.’ ”
The more-than-presumptive best-selling author Ron Paul found an audience of readers on Amazon.com.
