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.

Ha. That's funny. In a bizarre kind of way.
