seiuchiblarg said: (Spoilers) In response to Bdub, I gotta wonder if he watched the series all the way through? I mean, the last two seasons were almost entirely dedicated to the election of the first Latino president. Though I guess it did take pretty long to get there. And of course, I'm white, so I wouldn't be as aware of the need for racial representation as Bdub. I guess I'm mostly wondering if he's talking about the first few seasons, or?

This in response to this

bdub86 said: I use to love the West Wing but now I can't watch without noticing how white, straight and male they all were. They have tokens, white women, and no queer people. Then I learned that CCH Pounder was up for the role of CJ Cregg but they went with Allison Janney instead, I loved Ms. Janney, but it's tainted now. The show reads like a love letters to white men's liberal notions about their own nobility. It's like reading the Declaration and Constitution hyped until you get to the 3/4ths clause.

Thanks for the post! 

Comment away people.

15 years ago this month NBC greenlit a “heady, liberal, poli-sci fantasy” called The West Wing. Creator/writer Aaron Sorkin and much of his production staff and cast reflect on the successes and heartaches of the White House drama in the latest Hollywood Reporter. 
Bradley Whitford who played Deputy Chief of Staff Josh Lyman says, “ I always joke with Aaron — and it goes for [Producer] Tommy [Schlamme], too — that The West Wing was a great show about democracy run by a couple of Kim Jong-ils.”
You can check out Fresh Air interviews with John Spencer (Chief of Staff, Leo McGarry), Bradley Whitford and Aaron Sorkin.
