Kisses For My President meets Nixon's Cabinet
25 March 2002 | by rudy-30See all my reviews

This show was cute. Patty Duke played the country's first woman president, much like the film "Kisses For My President." Ted Bessell played her astronaut-hero husband who played around on her while he could. Herschel Bernardi was cast as an Ehrlichman/Kissinger type. It's a shame the show didn't find an audience.
