Josiah Bartlett for President.

As I write this I am watching an episode of The West Wing. In this episode the President plays two separate games of chess with two of his aides. He bounces back and forth between two offices playing war games all the while China is inching towards its own War Games with Taiwan. In an unrealistic exchange one of the aides takes the president to task for his suppression of feelings from being beaten by his father. I still don' t think that these types of conversations take place in the white house in general but especially not in the white house we currently have. The TV version is the white house I wish we had and it is fun to escape into fiction after the week we all have had.
