Is 'The West Wing' this show's only competition?

After seeing The West Wing on DVD, I bought this from the discount bin.
After watching three episodes, I have absolutely no regrets. Each
episode is 22 minutes behind-the-scenes in the 2004 Democratic primary
campaign. The lives of the staff people are treated with a quick
running conversational style from week to week. It is not deep but it
is not fake either.
If you watch Democratic party election returns, You will very likely
enjoy this and learn from it too. A few specific people are revisited
in each episode as they experience the highs and lows of it all. We
also meet the Presidential candidates in a less contrived setting than
usual. So far I have seen episodes centering on the campaigns of Kerry,
Clark, Dean, and Lieberman.
There is enough dramatic content to hold it together.
