Alexis Bledel’s upcoming guest appearance on this Thursday’s 2 hour ER series finale got me thinking about the Gilmore girlsagain.

In the 2007 series finale, Rory was about to really leave home for the first time for an amazing job opportunity. Her assignment? Cover the presidential campaign of a particular long shot candidate for the democratic nomination. That was the last we saw of Stars Hollow’s favourite daughter.

Don’t you ever wonder, if Gilmore girls came back for a new season, where would our favourite mother/daughter team be now?

Would Lorelai and Luke be married?

Would Emily and Richard have retired to Costa Rica by now?

And, considering that that dark horse politician’s name was Barack Obama, would Rory have made it to the white house press corps?
