Anchorage Daily News
Robert Barnett, the Washington D.C. lawyer who negotiated Gov. Sarah Palin’s book deal, hasn’t always been in Palin’s corner.
Barnett is an ardent Democrat who helped Hillary Clinton prepare for 23 primary debates and then said he supported Barack Obama "with all my energy" after Clinton dropped out of the race.
But as a powerhouse in the publishing world he's represented clients of extremely varied political stripes including Obama, Oliver North, Bill Clinton, Lynne Cheney Hillary Rodham Clinton, Bob Woodward, Tim Russert, George Will, Art Buchwald, William Bennett, Tony Blair and Queen Noor of Jordan.
Barnett is a partner at Williams and Connolly, the Washington firm that also represents former Alaska Sen. Ted Stevens in his criminal case.
Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines to tell stories from many points of view, so you can make up your own mind about the news. Tune in weeknights at 8 and 10 ET on CNN.
