President George W. Bush will be out with a new book, "Out of Many, One: Portraits of America’s Immigrants," on March 2 that includes his paintings of 43 Americans who "exemplify ... our proud history as a nation of immigrants."

What they're saying: The president writes in the introduction, "While I recognize that immigration can be an emotional issue, I reject the premise that it is a partisan issue. It is perhaps the most American of issues, and it should be one that unites us."

Also in March, the George W. Bush Presidential Center in Dallas will begin an exhibit on the value of immigrants to America, featuring his paintings.

  • The book will be published by Crown, which previously published three #1 N.Y. Times bestsellers by the president.
  • He was represented by Robert Barnett of Williams & Connolly.

Why it matters: Both picks are progressive allies of Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and viewed as likely to take aggressive steps to regulate big business.
