    I usually like documentaries, but this is just bad and sloppy. It's most dramatic topics are so boring it sickens me. I highly recommend not watching it.

    What a sappy show. Why would anyoe care about this guy's boring life? Politics has never been worse.

    The dealmaking and image-shaping are eye-opening, but the single most unnerving aspect of the show is just how young the army of political aides who make the system run really are. And on a sour note, the access is such that you almost wish every member of Congress had a TV crew. I like it

    Those unschooled in the ways of Washington may have trouble following some of the political machinations and plot nuance, but there's no mistaking passion when you see it.

    The insular nature of D.C. culture -- and the lack of natural light in Congressional hallways -- seems to impose monotony.
