People probably would vote for Angie Dickinson; she'd beat even Ronald Reagan in any likability poll. But still, her campaign for California attorney general in this made-for-TV movie is plain ludicrous. She doesn't shake hands with her supporters. Instead, she sleeps with a male hooker because her hubby doesn't like sex—"Sex," he says, "is just not one of my priorities." The hooker is murdered, Angie gets blackmailed, drops out of the race and then reenters it as she tries to solve the crime. Touch has the same problem most politicians do: a credibility gap.
