Tim Goodman from the San Francisco Chronicle:
In other what-were-they-thinking moments, "The West Wing" was also a deluded selection for best drama".
Ron Wynn from the Nashville City Paper
" The major surprise in that category is The West Wing, which has seen its best days creatively and will most probably vanish next season."
Many articles mention how unprecedented it would be for The West Wing to win a fifth Best Drama Emmy.
