With the book by former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) creating the Washington version of Harry Potter madness, its easy to forget that there are political authors with tomes to hawk who dont hail from Wasilla.They might not have perched on Oprahs couch or gotten multimillion-dollar advances, but a handful of Congressional authors will be at the National Press Clubs annual book fair tonight. Bonus: Rod Blagojevich is slated to be there, too! Rep. Henry Waxman (D-Calif.) and his The Waxman Report: How Congress Really Works, Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) and her novel, Blind Trust, and former Sen. Max Cleland with Heart of a Patriot are on the roster of authors for this evenings event.And although best-selling Palin wont be there, were still hoping for some drama: Can Ann Coulter and Kinky Friedman get adjoining tables?Submit your hot tips, juicy gossip or comments here.Cant get enough HOH?
