Hillary Insider Writes ABC's 'Commander in Chief'

Oh Good Grief!

I really hope people see the whole reason for this new show is to soften them up for '08 when Hillary runs for Pres. [shudder]

ABC insiders deny there's any connection between real-life presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and their new TV show "Commander in Chief" - where Geena Davis makes her debut tonight as America's first woman president.

But it turns out the show's lead writer is a longtime Clinton campaign insider who held a top job in Hillary's press office.

"Writer Steve Cohen used to work for her in the 1990s, serving as the then-first lady's deputy communications director," reports the Village Voice.
