U know who in the west wing universe would be a r good president?
That’s never really talked about regarding presidents?
Josh wants to be the guy the guy counts on–Well hello DC power couple. Donna, who absorbs info like a sponge, is just so damn competent and brilliant and smart and can grasp difficult concepts v easily and translate them into things that the average American can understand without losing the nuance of policy, like the cats and the Supreme Court.
And CJ said it herself :“Josh isn’t ever going to find an assistant better than you” CJ has worked in a myriad professional industries and made over 500k a year and is the goddamn US Press Secretary and for the fact that the deputy chief of staff will never find a better assistant than donna
Like……this isn’t some podunk law firm in the middle of nowhere this is the white house. A West Wing job. To say no one would be better means out of tens of thousands of people who would kill for that job would not be better than donna
(honestly there’s even an episode addressing it being Josh Lyman’s assistant is better than getting a Master’s and Donna’s starting salary at that website was what she assumed the total budget would be. That’s how valuable pre-Santos era Donna is considered to be). She hears and she absorbs and she retains and she’s able to apply that information–remember when she knew the exact filibuster rule, with the Stackhouse ep?
And Donna can publicly speak–we’ve established with Leo (and plenty of other people) that some people just forget almost everything in front of a camera or a crowd, or in a debate type of setting, or just look bulldogish and antagonistic(can you say the plot of the pilot?). It just isn’t for everyone. But this is what Donna did, for two campaigns and even as Josh’s assistant. Remember when he sent her to North Dakota to deal with people who wanted to eliminate ‘north’ in ‘north dakota?’
Once she quits she gets almost as good as Josh in like a year and sure, there’s few complications, yeah. But hey Bartlet had his riding into a tree affair. Donna has her yelling at a chicken debacle.
And also the trip abroad. Like she doesn’t like to politicize it.
But people who are like “oh she hasn’t served in combat” well she was injured in a war zone. Annabeth mentions how the people fell in love with her, wanted to make her story into a movie. There’s name recognition early on right there, something that would make it a lot easier to campaign on as a Senator or a Representative than the average person, get her foot in the door.
And listen people would be much more afraid of pissing off donna than Josh because Josh is always pissed but donnais the one person who can sometimes reel him in. No one is there to reel in donna. She’s charismatic, much more than josh, and people like her. Maybe after shes served a term as the first ladys chief of staff, helen more at ease with being first lady and more of an idea of what she’s doing, she’d run. She’d totally get elected as a Representative with her resume, then maybe serve two or 3 terms, then after possibly run for governor. And then start her election campaign. CHARLIE AS VP LBR CHARLIE IS TOTALLY GONNA GO BACK INTO POLITICS, HE’S TOO GOOD AT IT AND HAS SO MANY CONNECTIONS AND HIS WORK AT THE TAIL END OF THE BARTLET PRESIDENCY HAD HIM HOOKED HE TOTALLY WOULD BE DONNA’S VP.

For their 12th Anniversary, Harold and Toni Henthorn took a hiking trip to the Rocky Mountain National Park on September 29th, 2012. On that same day, Toni tragically fell 130 feet off a cliff to her death. Harold was convicted in 2014 for murdering his wife to claim over $4 Million in life insurance.
Harold is currently under investigation for the death of his first wife in 1995 after she was crushed by their car. Harold says that while she was under the car looking for a lugnut, the car mysteriously slipped off the jack and crushed her. Harold received over $500k from her life insurance policy.
After searching for a possible mate with lots of cash, a friend of Harold said he came across Toni on a dating website and immediately took a liking for her ($$$) They hit it off and were married soon after. Friends and family say the marriage seemed to be a happy one, but authorities say otherwise. The babysitter told Police that she had noticed he would go on many business trips, but would leave his luggage at home. After searching deeper, it was found that Harold had no steady income throughout their whole marriage.
Harold had visited the National Park several times before the fatal trip, telling authorities he wanted to plan the perfect anniversary. Police found a map in Harold’s truck on the day of the murder and he had marked a big X where Toni plummeted to her death. After she fell, Harold managed to find a Park Ranger and calmly explained that his wife had fallen. The Ranger had asked if he performed CPR immediately, but Harold just brushed off his comment.
Once the police arrived, Harold told them he preformed CPR, but there was no evidence to support that claim, as there was no smudge on her lips from her lipstick and no marks on her chest from the pressure of doing CPR. Harold’s last and final excuse for how she fell was that Toni had stopped to take pictures of the scenery and as Harold was looking down at his phone because his daughter had sent him a text message, Toni fell to her death. It was later found that he never received a message from his daughter and there were no photos taken on Toni’s camera in the area where she fell.
Harold is currently serving a life sentence without parole and is currently under investigation for his first wife’s death.
Someone on DramioneAsks asked about the longest Dramione fics that we’d come across, so I did a search and posted the Top 10, which are, ironically enough, also the ONLY 10 Dramione fics that are over 400K words. It got me thinking, so I’m also posting the longest Snamione fics (which are, interestingly, all over 500K words.) Two of these are on my ff.net favorites list.

TONIGHT IS THE NIGHT.
If you’re not aware, tonight the fandom streams shall cross in a most majestic manner.
From 10:30PM GMT onwards, Game Grumps (Arin and a few other were confirmed, maybe Brian?) will be on the Yogscast charity Jingle Jam livestream to help raise money for various charities. (They’ve already reached over the $500k mark)
You don’t need to donate to watch, but obviously any spare bucks you have are appreciated and you can donate via the Humble Bundle (link will be spammed by chat mods during the stream) so you also get a load of games.
I don’t know if the Grumps will be reading out donation messages or not (when you donate you have the option of putting a message for the streamer to read out, though a lot get missed due to the incredible amount of them and how busy they are playing games and such.)
