The Josh Lyman character from The West Wing was based on Rahm Emanuel..
Josh Lyman became Chief of Staff to President Santos in season 7. He also previously worked in the Bartlet Administration. He also once sent someone a dead fish.

Interesting how it all worked out.

2. Well that makes sense...
since the character of Matt Santos was based on Obama and the character of Arnie Vinick was based on the 2000 version of McCain.

3. Leo was Chief of Staff and then CJ Kreig (Alison Janney)
became COS later. I don't recall Josh becoming COS. I believe he was a very high level advisor but not COS.

7. As stated, Season 7, as the series came to a close ...
... with the ramp-up of the new Santos Administration.
