HBO's K Street with Howard Dean

Well, I just watched the first episode of HBO's K Street. It's deal is that it'll accurately portray what goes on behind the scenes in US national politics. I'm no judge of that, and anyway, can't separate it mentally from The West Wing.

I think the big deal here is the Howard Dean appeared as himself on the show, being prepped for a debate. This looks like an attempt to further humanize him, nicely ahead of schedule. If so, that's really smart. It feels like more West Wing/Aaron Sorkin stuff, and in any case, I find it mighty intriguing.

I'd like to hear more about this from a pro, being painfully aware of my amateur status. Maybe I know a coupla them…
