I haven't seen the new show about our first female president, but I have found negative reviews at both the uber-leftist Alas, a Blog and the neo-con stronghold of NRO.
Color me unimpressed.
Although I have only seen a few episodes, I sort of like The Closer, particularly the part in the season finale where even the guys on the squad who didn't seem to particularly like her stuck their necks out to make sure she wasn't sacked for political reasons. Plus, her character can get a bit bitchy, so you have the whole House, M.D. sort of vibe where people don't like her personality but admire her skill and dedication.
That is all.
