On this blog, we reflect on Rob Reiner’s The American President (1995). It is a romantic comedy, DC-style. We might say that it is a political lovefest about Washington maneuvering (and the triumph of good government) more than it is a story of two people who fall in love, face difficulties, and reunite in the end. How does it compare to other rom-coms you’ve seen? In what ways is this “political rom-com” different?
