Some conservatives, like Matt Drudge, are up in arms that a Democrat (played by Jimmy Smits), won the Presidential Election on last night’s “The West Wing.” On this liberal show, that’s hardly a suprise.
But, for a big reason, it was a good thing for fictional “West Wing” America. And real-life American politicians should take note: The key issue in the campaign was illegal immigration. And Smits’ character Matt Santos was tough on it. He wanted to tighten the borders, etc., much like Tom Tancredo wants to do. The Republican candidate, played by Alan Alda, was for a guest workers program, much like President Bush.
And he lost. Hillary (and Republican Prez hopefuls), are you listening?
