If you missed Friday night's all-new episode of Real Time with Bill Maher, Ms Scandal/Olivia Pope herself – Kerry Washington – was one of the 3 panelists this week. 

It's a Sunday, and also since Kerry Washington has been at the center of impassioned Scandal conversation on this site, in the last week, and also, after all the talk that Barack Obama didn't "show up" for the first presidential debate against Mitt Romney, which made up the bulk of the panel discussion on this episode of Real Time, I thought I'd share it. 

Watch Kerry hold her own with the gents; there's even been some rumor that she might be looking ahead to a potential career in politics in the future, given how involved and engaged she is in the process. The panel starts around the 13:45 mark, if you want to skip ahead.
