How do you get almost the entire cast of “The West Wing” (sans Rob Lowe, who — to be fair — wasn’t on at the end of the series) to reunite for a campaign commercial for a Michigan Supreme Court candidate in a non-partisan race? Well, it helps if the candidate is the sister of Mary McCormack, who played Deputy National Security Adviser Kate Harper.
The ad is surprisingly great, and while Josh does deliver some stump-speech genericism, overall, it’s almost exactly what you’d want from a political campaign starring the cast of “The West Wing.”
Also, Donna! God, I miss Donna. We never see her anywhere, anymore.
