I find it interesting that someone would use a 24 referrence in support of Hillary when it seems like the Palmers share more policy and behavior traits with Obama. I understand you're trying to counter the family dynasty argument but they were both only in office for one term each and Wayne was David's chief of staff, a position of more importance than First Lady in terms of day-to-day operations. In terms of personality I think Hillary lines up better with Keeler - willing to play traditional political games but with a reasonable amount of sober second thought. The Palmers were more idealistic and refusing to sink to the level of playing political games. Admittedly Wayne was more than willing when chief of staff but he became more like his brother when he had the office.
