From reader AB:

  • 1998: Josh Lyman is modeled after Rahm Emanuel.
  • 2004: Matt Santos is modeled after Barack Obama
  • 2006: Matt Santos wins the presidency, and appoints Josh Lyman his Chief of Staff
  • 2008: Barack Obama wins the presidency, and appoints Rahm his Chief of Staff.

In the art version we got a comprehensive Israel-Palestine peace agreement, so that’s something to look forward to in the future.
