It seems like the office of the President has never been more fetishised than right now. Apart from Scandal, we also have Veep and 1600 Penn - and that's just the television shows. Later this year Ethel Kennedy's home movies will be released in cinemas.

"Who said anything about negotiating?'

cue: explosions.
