great film. surprised. well written, in a made-for-TV way. the bad-news TV report scene is particularly chilling.
good IL' Beau! funny prosthetic belly he sports! they make jim brady seem very lovable. i sure remember this. new york senator (than a representative) wrote the Brady Bill which is something good Congress has done.
the shooting occurs too early in the movie for me -- i was just getting into the life of the press secretary. it's kind of West Wing meets Almost Famous. except the characters and events are not fictional.
