Zoom to Full using python

I have a python script that I am using to update my mxd tags, summaries, credits, etc.  The scrip also creates a thumbnail for the map. It appears that the thumbnail is created with the layout view that the map is currently using. If the map was zoomed into the legend last time it was saved, the thumbnail is just the legend.

I would like to add code to my script that would first zoom the map to the full view like the Zoom to Full tool on the toolbar so the thumbnails are consistent. 

Anyone have ideas?

Thanks in advance!
