Political figures have always been an easy target to poke fun of whether in film or on television. You take that poking fun at up a couple of levels when the political figure is the Vice President. It is easy to make fun of the person who only really gets to do anything if the President takes ill or dies. Up-and-coming politician Selina Meyers (played by Julia Louis-Dreyfus) makes the mistake of believing that accepting to run as Vice President will further her career. Instead, she soon discovers that it is the black hole of politics. Things go from bad to worse due to some negative press and her strained relationship with the President. All this adds up to sharp satire and plenty of belly laughs for viewers.
