Storyline

A fictitious small town in N.H. is the site of the first presidential primary vote, and the results from Hartsfield's Landing, announced at 12:07 a.m., will dominate the news all day until the final tally, so Josh wants favorable press for the president, prompting to ask Donna to persuade a local couple she knows to reconsider their vote. Elsewhere, Bartlet has just returned from India with a collection of antique chess sets he gives as gifts to the staff. He plays Toby while they discuss their recent blow-up, Bartlet's insomnia and Toby's fervent belief that the president's enormous intellectual gravitas is an asset, not a liability, to the campaign. He also plays Sam as they discuss a critical detente standoff between China and Taiwan. And Charlie and C.J. stand off in a series of pranks over a missing copy of the president's private schedule.

Trivia

While Josh is giving Donna instructions for how to convince the Flenders to vote for Bartlet, Donna walks by her desk and behind her is a map of the world. This appears to be a Peters projection map, mentioned during "Big Block of Cheese Day" in The West Wing: Somebody's Going to Emergency, Somebody's Going to Jail (2001). See more »

Goofs

In the opening scene, Bartlet tells the reporters, "Chess was invented in India, around 600 A.D., a giant chessboard was constructed at Fatehpur Sikri, which was the capital at the time." It is not clear whether Bartlet is saying that chess was invented in India in 600 A.D. or that the chessboard was constructed at Fatehpur Sikri in 600 A.D., but in either case he's wrong. Chess was indeed invented in India, but it is believed to have been several centuries earlier, around the 3rd century A.D. Also, Fatehpur Sikri was not around in 600 A.D.; it was built as the capital for the Mughal Empire by the emperor Akbar in the 16th century. See more »
