Storyline

In an episode dotted with flashbacks, Leo and his attorney Jordon Kendall (Joanna Gleason) face a Congressional inquiry into whether the president lied to the American people regarding his MS, but this particular day of hearings concerns itself more with Abby and her secretly medicating Jed, and later with Leo's having fallen off the wagon during the campaign (a politically motivated Republican rep on the committee witnessed Leo drunk in his room three days before the nomination); we see the meeting in which Leo talked N.H. Governor Bartlet into running for president, introducing his idea, "Bartlet for America", on a cocktail napkin, which the president later frames and returns to Leo as a gift in thanks for all he's done for the president over the years; Cliff Calley, Donna's boyfriend and special counsel to the judicial oversight committee, asks the committee chair to halt the inquiry before the rep can compel Leo to admit his personal transgression; Leo asks Jordon to Xmas Eve ...

When recounting a time meeting with potential donors, Leo mentions Johnny Walker Blue Label is aged 60 years. Blue Label is actually a blended Scotch with no age statement. The reason there is no age statement is that in order to place the age on a bottle of Scotch, even a blend, it must display the age of the youngest whisky in the blend. Rumors are vast and plentiful, but the prevailing thought is that there are whiskies as young as 12 years and as old as 40 years. The actual number is a secret held by Diageo. See more »
