Bill Clinton to tout book on "60 Minutes"
(June 2, 2004) — (New York-AP) -- Bill Clinton flopped last year as a commentator for "Point-Counterpoint" on "60 Minutes." But Clinton is scheduled to discuss his upcoming book, "My Life," with Dan Rather for an interview to be aired June 20th. "My Life" will be published June 22nd with a first printing of 1.5 million copies. "60 Minutes" has been a key forum for some of the year's biggest political books, including Richard Clarke's "Against All Enemies" and Bob Woodward's "Plan of Attack." Clinton himself has a long history with "60 Minutes." It was the setting for one of his most famous interviews, when in 1992 then-presidential candidate Bill Clinton acknowledged that he and his wife, Hillary Rodham Clinton, had had marital troubles. Last year, Clinton and former Senator Bob Dole hosted a revived "Point-Counterpoint," but the segment was soon canceled because of poor ratings.
