why not gore

"We love you, you're perfect, goodbye" an op-ed in today's New York Times argues for Gore not running in 2004. Aside from the good arguments and summary, a phrase caught my attention:

When was the last time that, two years before the election, the assortment of candidates didn't make your heart sink a little? You want Martin Sheen, but he's not the president, he just plays one on TV. Let Mr. Gore stand down, and one of the others will rise to the occasion.

Somebody should try running the Bartlett campaign for real, using the fictional characters and everything. They could then record it (think The Osbournes) and broadcast it as a series. At the very least, the actors in The West Wing appear way more professional at their jobs than most government officials these days.
