Barack Obama – the Aaron Sorkin President

46 years old. $75 million in the bank. 25 points down.
This is Barack Hussein Obama, Democratic candidate for President of the United States. He’s good. Sure, there’s a touch of the West Wing about it all: the straight-talking, self-deprecating man of honour in a nest of scheming bastards. He’s even mastered that Matt Santos trick of turning every question about his opponent into a story about himself. It may be too early to see if he can actually ‘do a Bartlett’, but it’s refreshing to hear such an intelligent voice.
