A book in Pawlenty's future? The governor says he's given it "some thought"

Romney's got one, Palin's got one, Huckabee and Gingrich have a few, might Gov. Tim Pawlenty be the next prominent Republican to write a book?
"I've given it some thought but, ah, it would be down the road," Pawlenty said Wednesday in answer to a reporter's question.
These days, becoming a writer or hiring a ghost writer is a near requirement for a national political run. Might Pawlenty's admission that he has given book authorship "some thought" be another sign he is gearing up for a 2012 run?
A Duluth native who just barely lost Virginia's GOP gubernatorial primary said that politicians have not gone far enough in condemning the left for violence during a rally of white nationalists in Charlottesville. "I think that the left is going to try to use this as an excuse to crack down on conservative free speech," said Corey Stewart. "I think they're going to try to use this as an excuse to remove more historical monuments."
