Steven Spielberg Finds The Bully Pulpit
DreamWorks buys another book from Lincoln's Doris Kearns Goodwin

DreamWorks just can’t get enough of Period Presidential Politics. Given the success of Lincoln, we don't blame the company for striking before the iron even has a chance to get hot and optioning Doris Kearns Goodwin’s new book The Bully Pulpit.

Goodwin wrote Team Of Rivals: The Political Genius Of Abraham Lincoln, which became… well, you know… She has two of Abe’s fellow former presidents as her subject for the new book, due out next week. The Bully Pulpit: Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft, And The Golden Age of Journalism looks at the long friendship between Taft and Roosevelt, one that curdled into a bitter rivalry. We wonder if the adaptation of this one will be based on more than just a few chapters, since Lincoln boiled down his life story to focus on one short period.

“Doris has once again given us the best seats in the house where we can watch two dynamic American personalities in a battle for power and friendship,” Steven Spielberg says in a statement dusted off by Deadline.
