Leo McGarry - RIP

John Spencer, who played Leo McGarry on the show The West Wing, died Friday of a heart-attack. He was just 58.

I would have guessed that Spencer was older than 58.

This season Spencer's character was poised to become Vice President. Leo McGarry was picked to be the running mate to Jimmy Smits character Matt Santos and it was clear to anyone who watches the show that Matt Santos will be winning the "election" on the show. I know it is tough to ask questions like this the day after Spencer died but I'm sure I'm not alone in wondering how the show handles his death. Who do they pick to replace McGarry on the ticket? Did they already have some shows filmed? Why did God take Spencer when Martin Sheen still breathes?
