Meeting Toby Ziegler
Like most of you I suspect, I am a massive fan of the West Wing, so to be on the same programme as Richard Schiff today was a huge honour. We were both on the Daily Politics. Sometimes when you meet actors it is a real letdown. Without a script they appear monosyllabic. Not Richard Schiff. After the programme we had a good 15 minute chinwag about the state of the election campaign and how Barack Obama was doing in America. He was particularly interested in what might happen in the event of a hung parliament and wasn't very impressed with the LibDems website which he had been looking at earlier this morning. He was amused they used the word 'different' six times in the main article and thought their policy proposals seemed very dumbed down. Who am I to disagree.
Anyway, my day is now complete. And I'm off to campaign in Dagenham & Rainham.
