Hillary Insider Writes ABC's 'Commander in Chief'


ABC insiders deny there's any connection between real-life presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and their new TV show "Commander in Chief" - where Geena Davis makes her debut tonight as America's first woman president.

But it turns out the show's lead writer is a longtime Clinton campaign insider who held a top job in Hillary's press office.
"Writer Steve Cohen used to work for her in the 1990s, serving as the then-first lady's deputy communications director," reports the Village Voice.

"I have no doubt she is capable, qualified, and ready to be the president of the United States should she choose to run," Hillary's scriptwriter tells the paper.

In fact, Mr. Cohen goes all the way back with the Clintons to their very first presidential campaign.

"I was Governor Clinton's first campaign volunteer in 1991, fresh out of college, took that journey to the White House and spent two years working for President Clinton in his press office," he told National Public Radio last year.

The "Commander in Chief" writer followed that gig with a three-and-a-half-year stint as Mrs. Clinton's deputy communications director.

In fact, Cohen is so tight with Hillary's top brass that he once shared an apartment with the top Democrat's chief fundraising coordinator, Patti Solis Doyle.

In an interview with Newsweek in 1992, Cohen marveled at the exalted positions he and Doyle had achieved

"You're doing the scheduling for Hillary Clinton and I'm flying around the country with a person who could be the next president of the United States," he recalled telling her. "Give me a break!"

Despite Cohen's deep Clinton ties, "Commander in Chief" creator Rod Lurie tells the Voice that he modeled his female president not on Hillary, but on Susan Lyne, the former head of ABC who now runs the Martha Stewart empire.

As for Cohen, he insists, "We support the notion of a female president from either side of the aisle."

I'm sure the CLintonians will spin this into a positive thing and not a blatant illegal campaign contribution.....Hell they got away with the "west wing" for so many years.

I wonder if the makers of this show should be subject to campaign finance laws.

I always wondered what they'd do if Hollywood type-cast a hypothetical president hero as Republican and made the democrats look sinister, mean-spirited, and dangerous. IOW flip the normal ideological stereotypes.

They got to show "The Day After" in all schools back in the 1980's. They get their message featured prominently all the time... and still they don't win elections. Hmmmmmm.

If we owned Hollywood and even 40% of the big media corps... we'd steam roll.

I'd be more than happy to support a Margeret Thatcher-type female for President.



Oh, you mean the other type?

Well.....screw that.

And the democrats dig the hole bigger and bigger for themselves.

They don't understand the power of the Internet at all....

If this is a campaign commercial for Hillery, what does it mean then when the show is pulled after six or seven weeks?

The network will do everything they can to keep this on as long as possible. Hope I'm wrong.

As the reviews start coming out, notice who the people are that will proclaim this to be "the best show on tv in years".

This leads me to belive we will have a third term of Republicans Honestly how can any one Dem or Rep stomach the idea of her?


ETA: not that I would want this but could you imagain if she got in how the Taliban react having a woman chasing them around.

I was disgusted with Al and John on Monday Night Football for having the beeoch on there to pimp her show. But ABC owns their ass for now, so they probably had to. Still, they could've acted like they didn't want her there.

Which is really odd since the Internet was invented by a democrat.

She's a socialist she would reinstall the taliban, raise taxes and give them billions in humanitarian aid. She would also let saddam go back to Iraq and pull our troops out.
