Overview

After the vice president of the United States dies, President Jackson Evans decides to make political history with a second-term swan song by naming a female senator to be his replacement. Senator Laine Hansen stands to become the first woman ever to be the vice president — if she can make it through the vicious and politically contentious confirmation process. When Hansen’s past comes under scrutiny by her political opponents, she battles with whether or not to fight the allegations or to take the high road by keeping her private life private. What follows is a engaging dialogue about political boundaries, personal sacrifice and the double standard that exists between the sexes. The fast-paced action is accentuated with razor-sharp dialogue and expertly placed moments of comedic levity.
