Maureen O'Dowd's NY Times column from last Saturday has Aaron Sorkin, creator of The West Wing, imagining what a meeting between the now retired former POTUS and Sen. Barack Obama would be like:
BARACK OBAMA knocks on the front door of a 300-year-old New Hampshire farmhouse while his Secret Service detail waits in the driveway. The door opens and OBAMA is standing face to face with former President JED BARTLET.
OBAMA Mr. President.
BARTLET You seem startled.
OBAMA I didn’t expect you to answer the door yourself.
BARTLET I didn’t expect you to be getting beat by John McCain and a Lancôme rep who thinks “The Flintstones” was based on a true story, so let’s call it even.
Man, I miss The West Wing...the rest of the Bartlet/Obama meeting is here.
