Barack Obama meets Jed Bartlet

Aaron Sorkin, the original screenwriter for The West Wing, conjures a meeting between Barack Obama and (ex) President Jed Bartlet in this terrific piece from Maureen Dowd's NY Times column.

Read it and weep.  Or laugh.  Or both.

As an American I am appalled at what is happening here. Apparently there are some heartland undecideds who were convinced to vote for McCain because "Palin's hot". This is how we choose our leaders apparently. Not all of us of course but the majority it seems.

I would ask you to pray for us but I am an atheist.

Great article. Thanks so much for the link. I forwarded it to a couple of work friends who are also "West Wing" devotees. Miss that show so much.
