The Guardian has an interesting article about the links – both real and imagined – between Barack Obama’s Presidential campaign, and the fictional Matt Santos Presidential campaign in The West Wing.

Of course, as anyone who’s seen series 7 of The West Wing will remember, if the links continue Obama may find it hard to persuade anyone to be his running mate, and if you happen to live near an American nuclear power plant, it might be a good idea to think about moving something soon.
