Alt Text: The correct command to hasten a dentist is giddyup.

Further to Lewis's comments, I would like to speculate that the stool represents some political party, grouping or ideology, and that Ned represents some individual member of that party, grouping or ideology who has a complicated relationship with the rest of the party, grouping or ideology.

How about Obama and the Democrats? See, Obama was expecting to just ride the Democratic Party into the White House (which should be easy given how much people, for whatever reason, seem to hate the Republicans following the Bush administration). Now, however, he's realizing that the Democratic Party is trying to do the exact same thing to him, except that it seems more likely to work that way around, since he's actually doing a lot of hard work to get himself elected.

The bit about an individual hoping to 'ride' a party sounds about right, I'd say.

(Bush may well be competent - I wouldn't know, I'm not a political scientist/American/viewer of The West Wing - but he certainly hasn't got the whole 'cultivate an impression of competence' thing down pat yet.)

Well said.
