The West Wing Presidential Debate

If you saw it, who do you think won? Fictional presidential candidates Matt Santos (Jimmy Smits) and Arnold Vinick (Alan Alda) debated on Sunday. Energy & environmental issues were part of the debate: Democratic congressman Santos believes in using alternatives, such as solar and wind to fight global warming. Santos is anti ANWR oil drilling, anti-nuclear and demanded that his opponent take and oath to, "Never go to war for oil" (Vinick refused). In a soliloquy about liberal Republicans Santos complimented republicans for passing the Clean Water Act. Republican senator Vinick does not believe in global warming, is pro drilling in ANWR, promoted the Prius hybrid car, believes in free markets and doesn't trust the government to solve energy problems.
