I’ve almost learned to live with the fact that we never got – and will never have-- Jeb Bartlett as our real president. It is just as true that we never got Matt Santos. I think the thing that I’m most saddened by is that West Wing all but promised us than in ten or fifteen years we’d get Sam Seaborn as our presidential candidate – a beautifully intelligent geek. That there was a bright future ahead, that idealism, capitalism and politics were not incompatible. Instead, we now have Democrats shifing toward socialism – eeeeew! – and adrift on political correctness.
