West Wing’s Margaret

My favorite characters on the recently departed West Wing were the secretaries/assistants. Honestly, were any of the "upper" staff as fun or as interesting as Margaret, Donna, Mrs. Landingham*, or Debbie? They stole all their scenes.

Here’s an entertaining interview with NiCole Robinson, the actress that made us love Margaret. Enjoy!

Hat tip: Laura

*Is that spelled correctly?

  • Spelling looks right to me! Glad I could point you to this fun article. :) Laura

  • STILL mad at them for killing off Mrs. Landingham.
    Margaret is a trip. One of my favorite exchanges (courtesy Wikiquote):
    Margaret: I can sign the President’s name. I have his signature down pretty good.
    Leo: You can sign the President’s name?
    Margaret: Yeah.
    Leo: On a document removing him from power and handing it to someone else?
    Margaret: Yeah! Or… do you think the White House Counsel would say that was a bad idea?
    Leo: I think the White House Counsel would say it was a coup d’etat!
    Margaret: Well. I’d probably end up doing some time for that.
    Leo: I would think. And what the hell were you doing practicing the President’s signature?
    Margaret: (exiting rapidly) It was just for fun.
    Leo: We’ve got separation of powers, checks and balances, and Margaret, vetoing things and sending them back to the hill.
    One of the many things to regret about the West Wing cancellation: not seeing Margaret as Josh’s assistant.

  • Yes! They deserved to go off the air just for killing Mrs. Landingham!
    In addition to the Bartlett forgery, God bless Margaret for crashing the White House computer network for a raisin muffin calorie count and this line:
    “Red meat has been found to cause cancer in white rats. Maraschino cherries have been found to cause cancer in white rats. Cellular phones have been found to cause cancer in white rats. Has anyone examined the possibility that cancer might be hereditary in white rats?” ROFL!!!
    And I think Margaret would have chewed Josh up and spat him out–that and kept him from blowing up the White House!
