President Barack Obama pulled a page from television Wednesday.

The commander in chief walked from the White House to a meeting at the Department of the Interior. The White House posted a video of Obama's walk and interaction with surprised tourists was posted to the White House's youtube page.

Fans of the former NBC show "The West Wing" will remember a similar walk by President Jed Bartlet in season 5's episode "Shutdown."

It seems President Bartlet's walk garnered more attention than President Obama's stroll on the streets of the nation's capital. Who do you think pulled it off better?
