I was outside the West Wing on Friday morning, watching the Marine guards do that sort of swirl pivot off each other at the main door on the driveway that they do when they change shifts…..having just missed the first gaggle of new White House press secretary Tony Snow because he switched the times and made it earlier….and I got there a little later because I was at a breakfast briefing with Sen. Elizabeth Dole (R-S.C.) who admitted the Republicans have a few challenges to keep control of the Senate in November (“ No question about it, the wind has been in our faces. The wind has been in our faces for over a year.”)….when I realized…..Sunday is the finale of “West Wing.”…
I came to the series late, in 2004.
