My daughter Megan sent me this link the other day, about parallels between the West Wing Matt Santos character and Barak Obama. Click the link please if you don’t see the video
Warning and disclaimer: it’s pro Barak Obama. Megan and I watched most of the West Wing shows together, and we were rooting for Santos (although TV elections are nicer than real life, because the other guy, played by Alan Alda, would have made a real good candidate too). I’m not doing politics on this blog as a rule, but this was hard to resist. It’s not propaganda or diatribe, just an interesting piece of journalism tracking the similarities back to writers. And it’s an interesting twist in the end, towards the point of who is imitating whom.
