  •  Why Wasn't Santos on the Survey? (none)
    Yeah, Why wasn't Matt Santos on the survey?  He'd kick everyone's ass

    No matter when I arrive, I'm always right on time.

    •  See the West Wing marathon last night on Bravo? (none)
      They did the last bunch of episodes from last season, ending with Santos nomination.

      Way off topic, but I was really hoping Alan Alda's character was going to be the winner.  The way I saw it, when the West Wing started, it put forth (during the Clinton years) the ideal Democratic President- brilliant, charasmatic, a true leader, with the morality of a priest (and not one of those child molesting priests, a good one).

      So, I really thought they were going to elect Alda as kind of the "ideal Republican"- pro-choice, pro-enviroment, fiscally conservative, etc."  Plus, that would allow for a huge turnover in the show, reinvigorate with new characters.

      But, once I saw Leo was the VP for Santos, that pretty much took the drama out of it for me.

      (Although I had been thinking that if I was looking to re-build the show to last several years you'd be better off with Jimmy Smits than Alda anyway, so in the back of my mind I guess I always knew who was going to win).

      A flame rescued from dry wood has no weight in it's luminous flight yet lifts the heavy lid of night.
