Last night, a well-to-do crowd of generous New Yorkers enjoyed a rare opportunity to hang out with two presidents of the United States: Bill Clinton and Josiah Bartlet. The occasion was a charity screening of 'The Way,' starring Martin Sheen -- who played Bartlet on 'The West Wing' from 1999 to 2006 -- and directed by Sheen's son Emilio Estevez. Clinton, who was there to support the evening's beneficiary, The Walkabout Foundation, went out of his way to thank "my friend Martin Sheen, who when I left the White House became my president." (That's a George Bush joke, for those playing at home.) "I try to show the appropriate deference."
