In the introduction before Congressman Matt Santos takes the stage to address the convention, the announcer states that Santos is a graduate of the US Air Force Academy (at around 50 mins). In previous episodes he is described as a graduate of the US Naval Academy and in the top 10 percent of his class; in later episodes he is said to be a graduate of the Naval Academy, an officer in the US Marine Corps, and a pilot who served in the Gulf. The single reference to the Air Force Academy is inconsistent with the other references. See more
