This show, was as exciting as any show could be for the 05-06 season. Alas, as a show of this grand nature would do, it moves my soul to the highest nature to see a woman as the President Of The United States. This is a first, on television, but the thought of a female president has long been a thought in the minds of many for the past years. Now, with "Commander-In-Chief", we can see a glimpse at was it would be. I think the idea is fantastic, and powerful. 'Powerf', a word that men do not usually associate with women, but it is a possibility. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but someday, we will see this as a reality. Women have been displayed with power over the years in film, as Geena Davis stood up for feminist rights in "Thelma & Louise". How about Helen Slater in 'Legend Of Billie Jean'? Even earlier, Katherine Ross and Paule Prentice in "The Stepford Wives"?
Geena Davis is remarkable and deep as the first Female President. The rest of the cast adds up as well. Beyond any doubt or utter in vain of the women of America, this can be a reality, and this show proves it, and proves it well. Shall this show make a difference in life and politics. Many people don't like the idea, but others do, so were I anyone other than myself, I would give this show a chance! It's actually really good!
