From AP: "WASHINGTON - It's going to be a while before we find out whether Jimmy Smits or Alan Alda will be the new president on 'The West Wing.'
Smits says the fictional campaign will play out like a real one.
In a radio exclusive, Smits tells AP Radio News that they even plan for a live one-hour debate between him and Alda.
Since Smits' character is a Democrat like the outgoing president, shouldn't that give him an edge over Alda?
Smits laughs and says, 'I don't know, don't count the 'MASH' guy out.'
The West Wing returns Sunday night on NBC."
