SNEAK PEEK: 9/11 and Iraq hearings


Duncan Hunter will mark the anniversary in Washington by "working at his job to help make sure it does not happen again," according to his staff.

Rep. Tom Tancredo and other representatives will be in the Cannon building to hold a 12 pm ET briefing with members of the Iraqi and UK parliaments and European Union to discuss options for Iraq.

And the Democrats… ABC News' Donna Hunter reports that Chris Dodd joins the list of 2008 presidential hopefuls in the quest for book sales – his new book, "Letters from Nuremberg My Father's Narrative of a Quest for Justice," hits stores tomorrow/ The book is a compilation of letters Dodd's father Sen. Thomas J. Dodd wrote to his wife Grace while serving as the number two U.S. Prosecutor on the Nuremberg trials post World War II in the summer of 1945.

Hunter said that Dodd received a $30,000 advance for "Letters from Nuremberg," which is only a fraction of what his better known Presidential contenders received for their books. Obama's "The Audacity of Hope" fetched a $425,000 advance against royalties; John Edwards received a $500,000 advance for "Home: The Blueprints of Our Lives," and Biden received a $112,000 advance for "Promises to Keep: On Life and Politics," released last month.

John Edwards and his wife are in South Carolina. They have no public events scheduled for 9/11.

Gov. Richardson has no public events scheduled.

Dennis Kucinich is in Washington.

Mike Gravel will be in New York City for a press conference at City Hall at 1 pm ET and then heads to the United Nations at 2:30 pm ET to discuss the Petraeus report as well as make remarks on the anniversary of 9/11.
