Only in Rasmussens' likely voter world is Sarah Palin qualified to be president.

If 20% of likely voters buy Palin's book, it will sell at least 20,000,000 copies. That would put its sales along the lines of "The Godfather" or "1984." I doubt a political memoir will sell that well. I expect it will sell like crazy for the next couple of weeks, but that the excitement over it will die down as Christmas gets closer.

I believe "Mein Kampf" is the best-selling political memoir of all time at somewhere above 10,000,000 copies. We'll see if she beats that.
