I was there with you once, but when someone pointed out the Henry thing, I could not unsee it.
Chief of staff, POTUS, SoS, head of the FBI/CIA, national security advisor.....and some random dude to give an ethical opinion summary?
I think Henry's character works better as the head of an NGO, where he works with the state department and POTUS for good causes he believes in. I think that position lends itself to Henry's personality, and it would mean having to actually fight his position in the trenches with everyone else, and not just make some random statement that everyone hangs on to.
I watch the show so I like it. But I find Henry's situation/character ridiculous.
