Has anyone realized that the strong TV political drama has gone by the way side reality TV and any version of CSI in a city that you can find. After the West Wing ended they tried several shows but nothing ever took hold. Every day I find myself drawn in to watching episodes pf The West Wing. I really think the timing is right for Mr. Sorkin to get back in the saddle and get that brilliant mind to work. In one of the early seasons President Bartlett tells Sam that one day he will run for president and that he shouldn't be afraid of it. Why not revive Sam Seaborn (Rob Lowe)into the newly elected president and add some of the former key characters into a new version of the West Wing. I personally belive the time is right and the awards will once again flow.

Though this beloved show has been completed for some years now, it still holds my heart strong. In fact, I'm watching the show right now! And my strong sentiment for the show also stands true for the wonderful actors who made up the West Wing. In honor of both, here are a handful of spots dedicated to the cast of the West Wing. Please come and join them!

Obviously not everyone is represented as of November 2008. If you decide to make a spot for unmentioned actors from the show, please let us know!

Martin Sheen, a.k.a. President Josiah Bartlet.

White House employee fired for trying to protect president's life
By Bill Conroy,

Sometimes, the truth is right in front of us, even if it comes in the form of a seemingly misspoken sentence.
During the political storm that erupted in early 2006 over the Bush administration’s plans to turn over port security to a United Arab Emirates-based company, the president was quoted on Fox News saying the following on March 12 of that year:

"People don't need to worry about security. This deal wouldn't go forward if we were concerned about the security for the United States of America."

Apparently, if we are willing to heed the story of a former West Wing lead mailroom assistant, Laura C. Jones, the president’s gaff underscores another truth: that his staff isn’t concerned about White House security either.

Rather, the Bush inner circle seems more concerned with silencing individuals who threaten to expose politically embarrassing (and job-threatening) security breaches, even if those lapses pose a threat to the life of the president.
