What the Candidates Are Reading

Finally, someone (the AP) is asking the Presidential candidates the important question:

What is the last work of fiction you've read?
Delaware Sen. Joe Biden: "Runaway Jury" by John Grisham.
New York Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton: "Team of Rivals" by Doris Kearns Goodwin
Connecticut Sen. Chris Dodd: "The Broker" by John Grisham.
Former North Carolina Sen. John Edwards: "Exile" by Richard North Patterson.
Ohio Rep. Dennis Kucinich: "Einstein's Dreams" by Alan Lightman.
Illinois Sen. Barack Obama: "Gilead" by Marilynne Robinson.
New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson: "The administration's energy plan."
Kansas Sen. Sam Brownback: "The Dream Giver" by Bruce Wilkinson with David and Heather Kopp.
Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani: "The Beach House" by James Patterson and Peter De Jonge.
Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee: "My oldest son's screenplay."
California Rep. Duncan Hunter: "The Democrats' proposal to balance the budget."
Arizona Sen. John McCain: "A Farewell to Arms" by Ernest Hemingway.
Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney: "Term Limits" by Vince Flynn.
Colorado Rep. Tom Tancredo: "An Inconvenient Truth" by Al Gore.

Really? Obama and McCain are the only ones reading interesting fiction?
