Bob Schieffer the Author, Looking for a Post-Debate Bounce in Sales

When you're plugging a book, it's nice to have your own national show. CBS anchor Bob Schieffer was checking out Amazon.com ratings of his latest work, "Face the Nation: My Favorite Stories from the First 50 Years of the Award-Winning News Broadcast," when he discovered that it was somewhere under one-millionth place. Sunday he mentioned it on "Face the Nation," and the sales ranking soared to the 92,000s.

"I wonder what'll happen once I go on Imus," he excitedly told a book-party crowd that arrived via red carpet Sunday night at Georgetown's trendy Blue Gin. Fans included Dan Rather, Tim Russert and wife Maureen Orth, Sens. Pat Leahy (D-Vt.) and Susan Collins (R-Maine) and White House staffer Pam Stevens. When we checked yesterday post-Imus, the book had landed at the No. 239 spot. Imagine what might happen after the third presidential debate Oct. 13, which Schieffer is moderating.

Schwarzenegger has previously acknowledged his debt to his father-in-law, Peace Corps Founding Director Sargent Shriver, for teaching him "the joy of public service" and Arnold is encouraging volunteerism by creating California Service Corps and tapping his wife, Maria Shriver, to lead it.
