President Gilcrest and his trophy wife are living in the White House, with their overachieving daughter sidetracked by pregnancy, a couch potato hopeless son, a genius young son, and an odd middle school girl.
Julia Mansfield is the first woman to be elected President of the United States. In addition to dealing with the threat of nuclear war with the Soviet Union, spies in the cabinet, and personal attacks by a conservative religious leader, she also has to handle such personal problems as an impotent husband and a sex scandal involving her son.

A Brief but still Very Nostalgic Trip & Reminiscence.
It's no wonder that it's so easily forgotten because it made TV Guide as being in the Summer of 1985 the most offensive Show but what can I say but as My Mom & me agree it more than was just in style to make fun of our most serious enemies of which the Russians were during The Cold War of which more or less ended during 1989 with the Tearing down of The Berlin Wall.But back to this show & another reminiscence behind it is when the night of a lost Relative's Wake I was watching an episode of this one night of this year along with practicing the reading for the Funeral the next day.But Back to the episode of that night.When The President's Son said he only said what he felt she then said "Well think before you feel & feel more positively."Something like this? But as you can see it's no wonder reviews say that Commander in Chief is both abc's & TV's 1st TV show about a Woman President.However American History is still American History & should not be forgot keep your eye on the grand old flag.I also personally thought at the time that I saw this show that it wasn't fair to take a nice dream like this & make it offensive.
They're 3 supposed reasons that this went off the air one that it was TV's Most offensive show at the time,the other that it was to much of a copy of the old night time Soap called "Soap" & the other that the producer(s) of this had a choice to continue with this or do "The Golden Girls" instead of which would/did come out later this same year.
Next Look into Madam Secretary with Tea' Leone on Sunday nights & see if it lasts long at all or even long enough for her to be promoted to Madame President? Maybe this,Kisses for my President,& Commander in Chief & now even Madame Secretary could suitably turn up on both We/Women's entertainment & Lifetime Television. Little additions and/or editings were just added today on October 12,2014 and suitably for Colubus Day which fell on a Sunday for a Holiday Weekend.
