Pa. Gov. Rendell Is Writing A Book About Career

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell says he's writing a book about his more than three decades in politics and government.

Rendell disclosed his plans during a news conference on state budget negotiations Friday.

The Democrat said the rough working title of his book is "My Life in Politics - You Can't Make This Stuff Up.'' He says he's sketched out about 15 chapters so far, but has yet to land a deal with a publisher.

Rendell is finishing his second four-year term as governor. Previously, he was elected to two terms as Philadelphia's mayor and two terms as its district attorney. He also served as general chairman of the Democratic National Committee in 2000.
