Commander in Chief is excellent
16 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The plot is moving along nicely with an exceptional cast. The addition of Warren Keaton as a foil for independent president Mackenzie is a brilliant story line. In history there has never been a Vice -President who is on the other side of Presidential positions. His statement of admiration for her decisiveness as the reason he will join her team was terrific and credible. I like the family inclusion but am looking forward to the confirmation hearings for Keaton. How topical and this will be interesting as we compare it to the reality we have been living with. Mr Coyote is an excellent actor and adds to the emerging story. I hope he gets confirmed. His commanding presence adds to the series.I hope he will have a continuing role that shows how effective a V.P. can be unlike V.P Cheney.
