Santos Speaks!

Bringing full circle the whole West Wing-Campaign '08 parallel that's weaved its way through the primaries and general, actor Jimmy Smits, who portrayed Barack Obama's fictional precedent Matt Santos on The West Wing, provided the introductions at Wednesday's big Obama-Bill Clinton rally in Florida. Politico has posted a nice, extensive interview with Smits, where the actor not only discusses his prior encounters with the (hopefully) future president, but also his thoughts on race and the race. Definitely worth checking out for the insights offered, as well as the weird intersection of life and art.
