Life Imitates Art

October 31, 2008

Good to see that the NYTimes has noticed something I said ages ago: that this election has a striking resembelance to one played out on the television series the West Wing a number of years ago.   Of course that’s because (as has been widely reported) the writers’ of the season were in touch with Obama’s campaign manager during the writing process, and they had McCain in mind when crafting Vinick.  None of that means of course that the writer’s expected they would get it so right.  Let’s just hope that the end result is similar, yet different.  A Santos victory, albeit with a wider margin and without an election night tragedy in the form of a dead Vice President.
