I agree with you all... though the politics on The West Wing can be horrifically liberal, it somehow captures my attention (and one hour of every Wednesday). I'm addicted.
I, too, was shocked when Charley told the Cheif of Staff that Mrs. Lanningham was killed... that nice, funny old lady. I wonder why they did it.
Neil- I have found The West Wing theme on Napster (gasp!). Thats about it.
One final note- Globetrotter hit it on the head... the show is surprisingly balanced (or as much possible on an NBC drama). I enjoy it a lot when I see characters such as Ainsley Hayes kick liberal ass on the show.
