William Powers is a clueless senator whose career is actually run by his manipulative wife Margaret, his smart chief of staff (and mistress) Jordan, and his political aide Bradley.

I agree with everyone in that this show was very funny not to mention very smart and witty. The funny thing is, I remember watching the show a long time ago with my family when I was about eleven or twelve years old and it was so hilarious that I found myself wondering about that show just the other day when I was watching a rerun of Frasier. I had since long forgotten the name of the show but was compelled to look it up on the internet. I agree that this show should have never been cancelled. However, the network should consider airing the episodes and also releasing it on DVD. I don't buy a lot of videos but this one would be worthwhile. A lot of very smart comedic shows get cancelled. A notable one would be "Arrested Development"- what a shame that was. Just when I had faith in great television again, they go and cancel a show that was finally worthy of being on TV. Now all we're left with is literally garbage. At least I have "The Office" to look forward to.
