The Bartlet administration represented everything that politics should be. The Meyer administration represented everything that it shouldn’t. The West Wing also had, especially among supporting characters, a far more physically attractive cast. Despite these differences, we are teaming up to support Democratic candidates up and down the ballot in my home state of Wisconsin.”
