History reminds us to be wary of Ten-word answers for complicated political issues or concerns. Can you identify the 10-word answer candidates running in this election cycle (mid-term and 2024) and who they were they in 2016?
Below is the West Wing episode with the 10-word answer (in an election debate) and the response from the incumbent President, Jeb Bartlet.
My favorite West Wing Episodes
Here is a great example of the big print giveth and the small print giveth away. Our 45th knows this well. The 45th relied on the short attention span of his followers, his press, and loyal spokepersons. The followers hear the headline but fail to hold the 45th accountable. Broken promises the result.
THE WEST WING Reunion // ATX TV Festival // Season 5
Aaron Sorkin created an alternate reality that we all wished was real, where President Bartlet and his WEST WING staffers did everything they could to change their world and in the process, left a lasting impact on ours – and the world of TV. In a rare conversation with Mr. Sorkin, director Thomas Schlamme, and lead cast members, we re-visit the heart-pounding conviction, spit-fire writing, and unforgettable characters that continue to impact viewers a decade later, as well as the series’ ongoing relevance to American political culture. #TheWestWing Panelists: Aaron Sorkin, Bradley Whitford, Richard Schiff, Dule Hill, Janel Moloney, Joshua Malina, Thomas Schlamme, Melissa Fitzgerald Moderator: Lawrence O’Donnell Visit atelevisionexperience.com for this and many more full ATX panels and Q&As NOW!
