The Cast Of 'The West Wing' Just Made One Of The Best Campaign Ads Ever. Have You Seen It Yet?
Every poli-sci nerd's dream just came true: "The West Wing" is BACK. Sort of.
The cast of the hit drama reunited to shoot a campaign commercial for University of Michigan law professor and Michigan State Supreme Court candidate Bridget Mary McCormack, who landed the endorsement of President Bartlett and company through her sister Mary McCormack (deputy national security adviser Kate Harper in the show's later seasons). In true "West Wing" fashion, the ad also manages to work in a bi-partisan message about voter participation and generally avoids the kind of sensationalist horrors that have plagued most of the campaign ads of the 2012 election season in favor of a more positive message. Enjoy.
