- Politics vs. Fiction
When the erudite Democrat Josiah "Jed" Bartlet is elected U.S. president, he installs his administration. He places confidants from his electoral campaigns in the White House. Each of these people play a significant role in the Washington power game: the Chief of Staff (Leo McGarry), his deputy (Josh Lyman), Communications Director (Toby Zeigler), deputy (Sam Seaborn, and later, Will Bailey), and press secretary (CJ Cregg). Also in key positions are the assistants of each of the power players. We follow these people through many political battles, as well as some personal ones. Also playing roles are the First Lady (Abigail Bartlet), the President's daughters (Elizabeth, Eleanor, and Zoey), and the personal aide to the President (Charlie Young). All make this series, which supposedly follows the political events (often paraphrasing historical reality) almost day by day, more than merely a political soap.Rob Lowe as Sam Seaborn (Season 1—4, special guest 7)Moira Kelly as Mandy Hampton (Season 1)Dulé Hill as Charlie Young ("A Proportional Response" —)Allison Janney as C.J.

An inside joke about those characters in t...
The West Wing universe exists totally outside the "real world", even to the extent that Presidential elections are held in what would normally be mid-term years in the real world. No real world presidential administration is acknowledged after President Richard M. Nixon's. Despite this separation, a number of episodes referenced real-life issues and incidents. The show was sometimes called "The Left Wing" by conservative critics for its often liberal treatment of real-life political, economic.
Season 1 The first season began in the middle of the first year into President Bartlet's first term. The senior staff were still getting used to their positions and were making a number of media blunders. After a full-time media consultant, Mandy, was hired, things began to run more smoothly, until evidence of Chief of Staff Leo McGarry's past prescription drug abuse came to light, causing more media problems. A number of "real world" issues were explored, including hate crimes, the death penalty, the census, and election reform. The season ended with a cliffhanger episode showing an assassination attempt. Season 2 The second season began with a two-part resolution to the season one cliffhanger, in which the target of the assassination was revealed to be Charlie Young. The attempt failed, but the President and Josh Lyman were hit instead. Flashbacks revealed how the senior staff came to work for the administration and the whitehouse. Then, following the mid-term elections in 2000, t...
The show won 26 Emmy awards over the course of its run, nine in its first season alone, a record that still stands for most wins by a TV series in a single season. It won "Oustanding Drama Series", "Outstanding Supporting Actor and Actress in a Drama Series", and "Outstanding Main Title Theme Music". The show also won 2 Golden Globe awards, as well as dozens of other critics' awards.
