Willimon's mission began the day after the election when he tweeted, "The new movement starts today. Alert your networks. I'll have more info soon about short/long term action items and organizing. #BandTogether."

One small comfort from all this is that when the next season of Cards rolls around the plot probably won't feel so farfetched, after all Bill Clinton did tell Kevin Spacey the show is "99% real".
