Another Bartlet week and another explosion of votes the first few hours followed by the normal trickle of votes the rest of the week.
It's not that we dislike Bartlet (quite the opposite). In fact, Bartlet could have possibly made it to the quarterfinals, even without his droves of supporters who come by only when Bartlet's around -- though some of us believe LBJ would have presented quite the challenge. It's the fact that votes spike on his weeks and the fact that he's gotten 80-90 percent each time. Seems fishy, guys.
Hey, maybe we're wrong. Maybe we've picked up some fans as a result of people checking us out this week. If so, great! Welcome!
Bartlet will return March 5 when he meets Barack Obama in the quarterfinal match. Wait, Obama vs. Bartlet? Liberals, your reckoning has come! Er, ahem. Next week, Theodore Roosevelt takes on Abraham Lincoln.
