Hillary in 2008? Ask Carl Bernstein Today...

Before you

Carl Bernstein - the ultimate investigative journalist (think Watergate coverage for The Washington Post, think All the Presiden'ts Men) - will be at Book Soup today @ 4pm to sign his latest book A Woman in Charge: The Life of Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Bernstein's book provides an inside peek at all things Clinton and answers some of the bigger questions about the Lewinsky affair, her early political ambition, her path to the Senate and her big plans to change the world. Detractors see the book - and the timing of its release - as an obvious attempt to paint Clinton as something other than the cold woman she seems to be. Clinton enthusiasts hail the book as the first true portrait of how human Hillary really is - something that will bode well for her during the 2008 race for the big seat in the big white house.

Truth be told, we're less interested in Hillary Clinton and far more interested in Carl Bernstein. He's the man! A chance to see Carl is a chance you won't get again anytime soon. Take advantage of the fact that the signing hasn't been widely covered (super-secret style) and make your way to Book Soup today @ 4pm. Now that the Deep Throat question has been answered, you'll have to think of something else to ask him. As in, is he working on an Obama book? If not, what next?
