Rove book to hit in March: AP

Karl Rove has so much more to tell us, apparently. His memoir, “Courage and Consequence,” just got a March 9 2010 release date, according to the AP.

Initial thought: Consequence? Not Consequences??

“Courage and Consequence,” according to Threshold, “frankly responds to critics, passionately articulates his political philosophy and openly explains the reasons behind his decisions in campaigns and the White House.”

Rove, who became synonymous with ruthless but effective campaign tactics, said in a statement Threshold issued Wednesday that his book would be “a frank account of what I witnessed and my often-controversial role.”

Rove hasn't exactly stayed low-profile since the end of the Bush administration. He is a Fox News regular and recently debated health care with Howard Dean. Is there really more we need to know about his political philosophy? Still, if he dishes on some behind-the-scenes from the White House — and not just David Plouffian hagiography about what a great leader he worked for — it could be good.

Also on tap for next year: books from Laura Bush, George W. Bush and Donald Rumsfeld.
