Great Show
16 March 2006 | by carolyn-sassSee all my reviews

I love this series! If Gina Davis was running for President I would vote for her. Heard she has a serious sore throat -hope she is well soon. Ready for a new episode, the Olympics killed the momentum. This is a clean, good, interesting drama series. Just love it! Very believable plots. She and costars seem to have a comfortable ease on this show. I love seeing Gina as a President, wife, mother and daughter all in one show. It relays what pressures women in America are feeling everyday, (well not the President position but certainly working outside the home with crazy schedules). I do believe we are ready as Americans to get a female in the oval office. Love this show hope it runs for at least 10 years.
