It was nice seeing West Wing again, last night.
The best scene was after the President took the two candidates privately into his office, and had told them of his planned unilateral intervention, into a former Soviet Republic to prevent the takeover by Russia or China, who were amassing troops on its borders. This commitment was going to be unpopular, both internationally and domestically, long term, and very expensive, but one that he felt morally compelled to take.
When he left the room, the two combatants seemed to have comprehended, perhaps for the first time, not only what horrible situation they might inherit, but what onerous decisions they might have to make.
These mini-Civics lessons will be sorely missed...
