Feels like this script has already been written

Obama v. Perry would be a helluva lot like President Bartlett’s re-elect against Rob Richie, in the West Wing.

In this clip, the two are speaking during an intermission at a play. The “wonky liberal” against the “everyman, who not only disdains wonky liberals but takes it a step further and enjoys being less educated” dynamic is laid out pretty well.

It could actually be the second election that the West Wing already scripted, the other being Santos (hope) v. Vinick (maverick) basically being a predictive mirror of Obama v. McCain.
