I’m currently powering through the entire seven series’ of The West Wing (bit slow on the uptake, but better late than never) and have been bemoaning the fact that Jed Bartlett (Martin Sheen) will never actually be President of the United States. He’s just so darn good at it. Obama is giving it a red hot crack though, and it’s nice that the leader of the free world seems like a fairly relatable guy. This is a video made for the 2013 White House Correspondants Dinner. It seems to be getting equal amounts of hate and love on YouTube. Perhaps if more people knew what Australian politicians were like they’d appreciate a President who had a decent sense of humour and who seemed like a normal person.
