Parallels

Last night during the Obama acceptance speech, I told Michelle that this feels like Season 1 of "The West Wing" and I could imagine all of the staffers already scrambling to get ready to govern now that the "oh shit we won" moment has passed. So I smiled today when I learned that former Clinton administration policy advisor and current Illinois congressman Rahm Emanuel has accepted the job as Obama's chief of staff. Emanuel during his years in the Clinton administration became the role model upon which the Josh Lyman character was based for the series.
