Thanks to Shonda Rhimes next week will be a milestone week.  It will be the first time in 30 years that a single African American woman will be the lead on a network TV show. (Jada Pinkett Smith was the lead on Hawthorne on cable)  The show -- Scandal -- is based on the life of Washington "fixer" Judy Smith who in the past also worked for President George H.W. Bush.

This part is clearly tailor made for Kerry Washington.  And, oh yeah - in Shonda Rhimes' world we have a female vice president who will be played by the great Kate Burton (aka Ellis Grey on Grey's Anatomy)

Mark your calendars for April 5 at 10pm.
