39. To me, his character looked like a blend of McCain and Darth Cheney.

5. It reminds me of the scene in "The American President"
when the president decides to address his critics and fight for what he believes in.

7. To me, first and foremost, "liberal" means generous.
Repubs have twisted the word "liberal" to mean loose morals, which isn't true, just because we mind our own private business and expect other people to mind theirs. Conservatives always seem to be sniffing around as if they have the sneaking suspicion that someone, somewhere, is having a good time and must be stopped.

Thanks for that vid clip, liveoaktx. I had no idea that the West Wing was so intense.

24. Exactly
Jimmy Smitts as Santos going over this is beautiful. I get so sick and tired of them saying "liberal" like we're "loonies" or Commies or whatever. He put it perfectly.

9. Actually the first time I ever watched that show-I don't watch network tv
but was interesting to see how they would treat a live debate.

10. I've actually seen quite a few episodes of the show on reruns.
One of my friends is a big fan so I catch some shows with him and I watch it when I visit my folks. What I've seen of it at least has been very well done and the idea of a live 'debate' is pure genius IMO.

25. It was a great episode
I got into the show last year when I became a political junkie. They have out season's one through five now (I have one through four and going to see about getting five for Christmas hopefully) if you want to buy and catch up. :) It's a great show. I'm going to miss Martin Sheen on there though but I've warmed up to Santos.

12. Woohoo! Any democrats in the Senate watching?
I have to say Alan Alda is delightfully evil as the republican challenger.

14. You know, I frequent one WW board for news and spoilers,
and everyone absolutely loathed this episode. Of course, I'm pretty sure some of those people are on meds, from the way they talk.

I loved it, dammit. Of course, I'm a history/political science major. I love talking about politics, so this was right up my alley.

17. This is what I always thought that Dukais (sp?) should have said
when they kept throwning that line around about he was a card carrying member of the ACLU. Sometime someone should stand up and say "You`re damn right I am and here`s why..." Thanks for the video.

27. So true
Liberals have always been right - and we've been demonized for it in the eyes of many by brainwashing fat cat Republican strategists, who have proven they will do whatever it takes to win - even destroying this country. :(

28. Thanks.
The show was wonderful!

It was a fantastic script (written by Lawrence O'Donnell), and Alan Alda and Jimmy Smits did a fine job.

I haven't watched West Wing in several years (don't watch much TV these days) but did watch this one, and it was a great show!

you should buy the box sets. They're up to season five now with releases. :)

29. Boring. So staged it's painful to watch. The best motivational speech
was the funeral service of Rosa Parks. That's REALITY people, listen to Al Sharpton over and over again.
