Public Service What?

I don't have time to check this out at the moment but rest assured I will.  How does a judge get this kind of plug in a semi-public-service announcement?  This is going to be an interesting story.

In the meantime, it's pretty cool seeing everyone from the best TV show ever all together again.

Because she is the sister of Mary McCormack, who was one of the actors on the West Wing?

I think she is the sister of one of the actresses in the ad.

I'm just now getting around to this. My take is that it's a flat out campaign ad. At least it had better be. It had better have been created by the campaign. I think the tag at the end is evidence of that. If it had been created by some sort of public service agency, of the League Of Women Voters variety, it would have rightly been excoriated.

Bottom line: cleverness is evident in 1) the casting, 2) the production values and 3) predominance of non-partisan voting instructions, with only 20-25 seconds of a four-minute message containing ANY information promoting a particular candidate.

The candidate may have some terrible positions on issues, such that I wouldn't vote for her. I just don't know. Even barring that knowledge, I'd say this is a well-done ad.
