Plenty has been written throughout the past two years about the similarities between the campaign of Barack Obama and that of the fictional Matt Santos in the last two seasons of the West Wing. West Wing geeks were in on the joke straight away. The BBC caught up a few months ago. And the interactions between fact and fiction have got ever more intricate, as this post on Comment Central details.

Which is all great and good for a laugh. But when you really start to care about the outcome of the presidential elections it all gets a little worrying. I mean, what if it turns out that the American people actually preferred Commander-in-Chief after all?
