Better than west wing...

This show is engaging and interesting. I find some of the most interesting aspects in the handling of gender and family roles. Even as president, Mac has to also be a mom and deal with the real life drama of a rebellious teen daughter. And the first gentleman struggles and learns how important women are in the power establishment. This is a great show for teens to talk about politics, power, and gender.
