Another Obama-West Wing connection

President Obama picks NY Republican John McHugh for Army secretary

He's the guy who wrote a letter to Josh Lyman protesting the closing of Fort Drum.

"McHugh and then-Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton even went so far as to write a letter of protest to a fictional character on the television show "The West Wing" after an episode suggested closing the base."

The original article about the letter from February 2004 is here at USA Today.
