Whitehouse Preps for Book Party

Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse’s new book, “On Virtues,” couldn’t be more timely given the recent scandals involving some of his colleagues and a certain Florida eye doctor. The tome — a compilation of inspiring quotes that the title suggests will help you “live a full, honorable and truly American life” — will be feted Monday night at the home of Clinton-land political guru Mandy Grunwald. HOH will be on hand to report on the guest list.

People we’re hoping will show up include the former president himself, Bill Clinton, who authored a rave review on the back cover of the Rhode Island Democrat’s book, as well as Sens. Al Franken, D-Minn., and John McCain, R-Ariz., who also penned laudatory blurbs.

Thinking of picking up a copy?

Consider: Clinton calls it a “life handbook ... [that] couldn’t have come at a better time for our country,” while McCain writes that the book will inspire people to “live satisfying, honorable and genuinely patriotic lives. ... I highly recommend it.”
