On the Sorkonian theme

That is, talking about Aaron Sorkin. Steve mentions that the West Wing wasn’t as good after Aaron left. I’d have to agree with that, and you can tell from the scripts that Aaron had left… The dialog wasn’t as clever, and the plot line became more about entrenched political positions and a failure to have a mandate than it was about hope and changing the world. Then again, the final season was pretty good as well — even if they did have to rewrite the ending.
