The inevitable meeting of the Dem’s fantasy ideal and reality-based ideal

Maureen Dowd convinced Godlike scribe Aaron Sorkin to write a scenic interaction between Barack Obama and “The West Wing”’s fictional prez Jed Bartlett.

BARTLET Senator.

OBAMA Mr. President.

BARTLET You seem startled.

OBAMA I didn’t expect you to answer the door yourself.

BARTLET I didn’t expect you to be getting beat by John McCain and a Lancome rep who thinks “The Flintstones” was based on a true story, so let’s call it even.

OBAMA Yes, sir.

BARTLET Come on in.
