But will he get Aaron Sorkin to write his speeches?

I mentioned Charlie Wilson's War in the last post, which was written by Aaron Sorkin (the film, not the post). Sorkin of course is most famous for The West Wing, whose final season covered the presidential campaign of one Matt Santos, a Hispanic-American who was apparently based on a little-known Illinois senator called Barack Obama.

And now life imitates art. In the TV series, Santos appoints Josh Lyman as his Chief of Staff. Josh Lyman was based on Bill Clinton's senior advisor Rahm Emanuel. Yesterday, President-elect Obama named his own Chief of Staff as.....Rahm Emanuel.
