McDugal? Of all the politicos you could have chosen to name Adam's hero after, you picked Jim McDougal? The real Jim McDougal died in 1998 in a federal correctional facility at the age of 57 after being convicted on 18 counts of fraud and conspiracy in the Clinton's Whitewater case. He also made his second failed run at Congress during the height of the controversy.
Is it political differences that drive Adam and Terry apart? Is he protecting a crooked congressman, while she is investigating him for fraud?
Here's something that might cheer Terry up. Sutton Foster tap dancing in Thoroughly Modern Millie. There's nothing like tap dancing to help you "Forget About the Boy!" Bernadette's intro is about 35 seconds, so skip ahead if you must, but, really, who would skip Bernadette? You'll want to go full screen on this.
