    Who will be the Veep? Time will tell, time will tell... In the meantime, I'm wondering: who knew politics could be so much fun? Ep-2 proved once again that this show has it all: Politics, intrigue, razzle, dazzle, Ted Porter, and Kiefer Sutherland Sr. Speaking of which, was that a familiar voice I heard speaking to the President's daughter about the "Case of the Disappearing Diary"? You bet it was! I'd recognize Ted Porter's crisp dialogue from a mile away. I won't soon forget it: "Was there anything in your diary that could be damaging to your mother?" Jesus Christ, what a line. Trademark Ted Porter timing, too; if he had spoken that line at the very beginning or end of the episode, it would have made no sense. And if he had spoken it to Geena Davis it would have made no sense either, because HER mother isn't even on the show. But Porter delivered it perectly, to the president's daughter in the middle of the episode. Bravo.
