Post ImageI came home from the office relatively early tonight, so I had time to catch the first episode of ABC’s “Commander-in-Chief“. Here’s the very to-the-point plotline from IMDB:

Mackenzie Allen becomes the first woman American president after she ascends to the job following the death of president Teddy Bridges.

What’s that?! Her name is Mackenzie? That’s so awesome! I have always wondered why there weren’t more characters with my name; I quite like it. She is played by Geena Davis.

Oh yeah, and she’s the first female President of the United States. As if that weren’t enough, her ascension to the Oval Office was full of controversy – she went against the wishes of the dying President who had asked her to resign. Her daughter didn’t agree with her taking the position. Lots of good storylines.

I don’t quite get the Hillary Clinton bashing though. As Allen’s husband was being shown around the “First Lady” areas, his tour-guide kept commenting on what Hillary had done and how “it didn’t go over very well”. Hillary for President, 2008!

Interesting show! I don’t know if I’ll make it a point to watch, but we’ll see.
