Davis's chief advisor is black, the governor of Florida is hispanic female, a head of a greenpeace like movement is black, and when a secret service agent screws up and lets the President's daughter sneak off and get caught in a street brawl, the white female agent is replaced with a...yep, black female. Also in the street brawl (in D.C.), everyone is white and too clean-cut...not like the street types I saw in darkeytown. They really must have a commissar in casting. As for the drama, it's kind of dull. I prefer fantasy to any 'serious' tv drama. Give me Xena or la femme Nikita anyday.

Yeah, and the kids go to a public school in D.C. and it's mostly White. LOL!
