Meh, it's just Sorkin being Sorkin. His sort of patriotism is a hallmark of the West Wing as well. I do find it a little much sometimes but then again, I'm very unpatriotic, even by my country's standards while in the US, it gets cranked up to 11.

While the US elections may not be "the envy of the world" exactly, they're certainly being followed by many people around the world (in earnest, not mocking it) due to the importance of the US in global politics. If you're patriotically minded you'll probably take some pride in that.
