political animals

Families can talk about the very dirty politics in Political Animals. How realistic are the plotlines? What political scandals have broken in recent years that make Political Animals' plots seem more realistic? Is this how we believe real politicians act? Do we expect that the people we elect to lead us will live morally upright lives? Do you notice any difference in the costuming, music, lighting or dialogue afforded to the women in the cast relative to the men in the cast? What are the clues that the women are the main characters here?
