Anyone know if they're giving the series finale 2 hours?

I liked the Vinick/Santos scenes

The Mrs. Santos scenes were filler.

The Santos/Vinnick scenes were the best part though I must admit I'm a little peeved that Nancy didn't get picked for Sect of State.

Turns out whoever said NBC would pull a switcharoo with Vinnick as VP was correct. State makes much more sense for him.

Good to know my guess was right, many many weeks ago.

I do think they played Helen as very naive about the changes coming. She's been in this campaign for close to a year, she had to know what was coming with the security details and such. But Teri Polo did look seriously hot in those boots.

It sure seems like this show is setting up for another season instead of ending its run. Donna becoming Chief-Of-Staff for First Lady, keeping both Vinnick and Santos in the fold as well as Josh (of course). Add Al Bundy as VP and Rob Lowe as Deupty CoS, and I would definitely continue to watch.

I know that it actually is ending, but it doesn't seem like it and I wish it wasn't.

No way the president sends his kids to public school. Especially in DC.

Can you even imagine what the secret service would have to do to the public school to make it safe? At least private schools probably have been used to heavy secutiry for high profile kids.

Jimmy Carter's daughter went to Public School.

That school in the episode looked alot like John Eaton.

The coffeehouse scene was soooooo classic DC

I wish Al Bundy was our vice-president.

It would be really cool is they picked this show up again. I guess they have to show reality crap for the idiot masses.
