Hillary's concession happened to fall on the last Saturday of my show's between-seasons break.  (I work on a prime time network crime drama.)  During those five weeks off, I watched -- no, I bore into -- the primaries, my obsession rising according to the lengths she would go to reconstitute her imagined primacy.  There was real tension, suspense, a built-in villain-you-love-to-hate, and a what-will-she-do-now cliffhanger. 

Now, back in the office, standing by as episodes are cooked up in the writers room, I wonder: can our little fictional hour, even with the liberty to go wherever it wants to, ever stand up against The Primary Show?

Nah. I'm in serious withdrawal myself.
