The American President

 

The characters:

        -Andrew Shepherd, President.

        -AJ Mc Innerney, Chief of Staff.

        -Lewis Rotschild, Senior Domestic Policy Advisor.

        -Mc Call, Spokesperson.

        -Jamie Basdin, Personal Assistant.

        -Leon Kodack, Pollster.

        -General Rorke, Joint Chief of Staff.

Outside the White House:

        -Sydney Ellen wade, Political Strategist (“lobbyist”).

        -Bob Rumson, “running for President”. (GOP, Grand Old party – Republican).

 

The future possible laws:

        -The Crime Bill.

        -Resolution 455 (contrary to “proposition”).

 

When the President knows a law will be voted, he “sends it to the Hill”.

The Motown Three bargain with the President: they will vote the crime bill if he “throws 455 down the drain”.

 

Bob Rumson starts his attacks during the Primary Election in New Hampshire. The deadline for Shepherd is the State of the Union Address (which he “storms”).

 

One lobby proves more powerful than all the others: the NRA (National Rifle Association). The least powerful one is the ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union).

 

Lucy Shepherd has a book that says “property of Gilmore Junior High School”.

 

Andrew Shepherd comes from Wisconsin.
