Nasty Letters To Crooked Politicians

As we enter a new era of politics, we hope to see that Obama has the courage to fight the policies that Progressives hate. Will he have the fortitude to turn the economic future of America to help the working man? Or will he turn out to be just a pawn of big money, as he seems to be right now.

'West Wing' Actor John Spencer Dies at 58

'West Wing' Actor John Spencer Dies at 58 - Yahoo! News: "LOS ANGELES - Actor John Spencer, who played the role of Leo McGarry in 'The West Wing,' mirrored his character in several ways: Both were recovering alcoholics and both were driven.

'Like Leo, I've always been a workaholic, too,' he told The Associated Press in a 2000 interview. 'Through good times and bad, acting has been my escape, my joy, my nourishment. The drug for me, even better than alcohol, was acting.'

Spencer died of a heart attack Friday. In a sad parallel to life, his character on the show had earlier suffered a heart attack that forced him to give up his White House job.

Spencer died after being admitted to a Los Angeles hospital during the night, said his publicist, Ron Hofmann. He would have been 59 on Tuesday.

He was 'one of those rare combinations of divinely gifted and incredibly generous,' said Richard Schiff, who plays Toby Ziegler on the NBC series.

'There are very few personal treasures that you put in your knapsack to carry with you for the rest of your life, and he's one of those,' Schiff said. He said Spencer had been struggling with health issues but seemed to have rebounded."
