It's a recurring role, and Kudrow will play a politician. You can now spend your time guessing which state she's from, guessing if there will be any subtle Phoebe Buffay references, or none of the above. Showrunner Shonda Rhimes did recently tell Vulture, "We have every intention of keeping the pace up ... if we don't do that, the show slows down and get stagnant." So yeah, season three will give you plenty more to tweet about.
