There was a TV drama in 2012 called Political Animals about a former first lady serving as Secretary of State. By the way, her ex-husband, the ex-president, had a reputation as a womanizer and brilliant political strategist.
Sound familiar? To those of us not in camp Hillary it looked like an attempt by show biz biggies to make that fictional Hillary Clinton look like the greatest thing for our country since Windows 8.
There was only one season of the show, and it ended with lots of questions in the air about whether she would run for president. I suppose they're waiting to see whether Hillary will run. If she doesn't, that'll be the end of "Political Animals."
But wait. What's this? Madam Secretary -- a different cast and crew, but with a lovable and efficient Secretary of State. They don't miss a beat. If "Political Animals" didn't do its job, you can be sure "Madam Secretary" will do it's best to get get this fictional multi-tasking Super Secretary imprinted in the minds of impressionable voters.
