ABC has a new show coming this fall called Commander in chief. It is about a female Vice President who becomes the President when the President has a stroke and is left incapacitated. I was really thinking about this yesterday and here's what I came up with.
I truly believe this is Hollywood's way to get America to mentally accept that a woman would be a good president before good ole' Hillary even runs. Kind of a subliminal message. Just so when she is running people will feel like they have already seen what a female president looks like. Make sense? Look how good the Democrats come across on The West Wing. I am a die hard conservative and I loved to watch the show every week. (Well, until Martin Sheen did that ridiculous tape over the mouth protest when the war started. At least he shut up for a while. I boycotted after that.) I really rooted for the fake President and loved the characters.
I guess the good news is, even though The West Wing is/was highly rated, the democrats still lost. Hopefully, the new show won't work either!
