A West Wing Writer Scripts the Democratic Convention

Wish the Dem Convention Was Scripted Like the West Wing?

Oh, wish no longer! With all the squabbling around the delegates and the big convention in Denver looming, don't you wish you could just cozy up and watch the drama unfold, just like the good ol' days on West Wing? This is almost as good!

It's a full screen play of the the imaginings of the plot. It's good!


The leadership considers going to Hillary and telling her it’s time to drop out. They all know there will be blood if they do that. Someone suggests trying to get Barack to drop out.

Reid: Barack sure is a lot easier to talk to.
Pelosi: Are we really gonna ask him to drop out just because he’s easier to talk to?

They screw up the courage to go to Hillary. They all agree they have to have Gore onboard and they have to enlist at least one of Hillary’s most committed superdelegates to join them.

Noo! Tell us how it ends! No cliffhangers! I wonder if this fiction will parallel reality. . . Do you think President Bartlett is a superdelegate?

I dunno about scripting the Democratic Convention, but I've often thought that a smart president would hire some Hollywood scriptwriters (like the guys behind "Independence Day" or the ones who did "Deep Impact") to write their speeches. I mean, damn, but if those are some of the most moving, patriotic things I've ever heard - half the time I'm ready to jump up and go join the fictional president in whatever he's doing! LOL!

I am very proud of President Bartlet and all the work he's done during his two terms. That said, he needs to back out and let democracy take its course.

And actor Harry J. Lannix, who played a doctor who dated Jeannie Boulet on ER is physically pretty close to Obama.

So, who would you all cast as Hillary, Obama, Pelosi, Gore ...???

I think it's hilarious how much drama this nomination has turned into. It's now become a matter of which group do the dems want to upset more: the black community, or the women's groups. It's a shame that we aren't looking at the candidates, their records, or their positions on the various issues. 2008 has definitely been a very intersting year so far!
