In the end (and I'm not giving away the ending, because it remains unresolved) President Shepherd does come to support both projects, but this is intended as a more feel-good move to set the film on a course of idealism and principle winning out over politics - in other words, a Hollywood ending.
President Shepherd is a liberal president, but quite distinct from being a copy of Clinton.
For Sorkin, this is the kind of liberal president that he'd like to have (and Bartlett on 'The West Wing' is a further extension of that), but reality rarely lives up to such ideals in any direction.

 The American President
Written for a full orchestra with a countermelody to die for (listen for those horns), it is omnipresent throughout the score, and captures perfectly the essence of the film, combining pride and honour with warmth and tradition.
All in all, The American President is a highly enjoyable album and, if the theme grabs you (as it did me), you are sure to get plenty of mileage from this score.
Also, the fact that the theme from The American President was so wonderfully used in the trailers for Steven Spielberg's Saving Private Ryan, is bringing this score to the attention of a whole new group of people who would, in other circumstances, have probably dismissed it as "just another romantic comedy".

Behind the scenes, Bush was dressed up for the role of war-time president, in shirt-sleeves at ground zero, bullhorn in hand, speaking to the New York fire fighters.
And in footage made infamous by Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit 9/11, Americans were able to see the real George W. Bush in an unscripted moment: as the children in the Booker Elementary School classroom read aloud, the second plane hit the Twin Towers.

 world in progress...: The American President
As some have pointed out, The American President does take a more simplistic approach to partisanship than The West Wing.
Firstly, The American President is a love story first and a political drama second, so a less nuanced portrayal of the political spectrum is forgivable.
More importantly however, President Shepherd's core fight is not with the Republican Party as epitomised by the loathsame Bob Rumson, who is, after all, portrayed as a blowhard and revealed as a lightweight by film's end.
