"Devil Meets Prada" meets Washington; former Senate staffers dish on D.C. culture in new novel: "Capitol Hell"

Alicia Long and Jayne Jones are the authors of "Capitol Hell"; a book they’re calling "Devil Wears Prada" meets Washington D.C. Inspired by life on Capitol Hill, the novel follows a naive young girl who goes to work for a demanding boss and gets in way over her head. Except this time the young girl is working for a newly elected senator who's seen as a rising political star. The writers are former Capitol Hill staffers, who both worked for former Republican Senator Norm Coleman of Minnesota. Alicia Long and Jayne Jones come to the studio to dish on the new book this morning.
