Bush League of Her Own
Bush as in the president and not -- oh, nevermind! If there's one thing the new ABC series Commander in Chief has got covered it's spotlighting the executive ovaries, even if they are meant to be made of steel.

The Geena Davis vehicle debuted in the Nielsen Top Ten this week, leaving The West Wing -- which, with a 37 percent viewership, is exactly as popular as the current POTUS -- flapping feebly into the syndication sunset.
The series is in the midst of a presidential campaign involving characters played by Alan Alda and Jimmy Smits. The show will have a live episode November 6 featuring them debating.
