Storyline

A crucial banking bill is at risk when political rivals of environmentally sensitive President Bartlet attach a land-use rider to it that would allow strip-mining some of the Montana wilderness. C.J. tries to stamp out rumors that the Chief Executive chastised the Vice President during a cabinet meeting. An overworked Leo isn't too keen on his independent daughter Mallory dating the handsome Sam. C.J. continues to fend-off the romantic charms of a perceptive reporter with a knack for sniffing out juicy stories. Former lovers Mandy and Josh clash over the administration's attempt to jettison the land-use rider that might also ruin passage of the more important banking bill. Written by Jackson Cornelle

Good a place as any to dump your body...
20 October 2012 | by (Jersey City) – See all my reviews

A top-ten Josh entry, as he stews over a retributional rider attached to a banking bill, and finally uses the President's nerd-like love of national parks to find a solution. Jed belittles Hoynes, and they finally have it out. Throw in some Danny...and Leo's daughter Mallory (Allison Smith, KATE & ALLIE) asking Sam to the Chinese opera. Leo and the President conspire to keep Sam otherwise occupied. What the heck ever happened to that plot line, by the way? Not that Mallory disappeared, but the chemistry between them was scrumptious, and then...nothing. There's a story there somewhere. Anyway, it's not a birthday card - it's a birthday message.
