Trivia

Besides the series always being in the off-years from the real presidential elections (the series' presidential elections are held in 2002 and 2006 and stated as such years), the inauguration ceremony/address/parade/balls are held on a Sunday. In reality, if January 20th falls on a Sunday, the president takes the oath of office as constitutionally required, but the ceremonies are held the next day. This happened in reality in 2013 with Barack Obama's second inaugural. See more »

Goofs

The Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center garage was used when President Bartlet supposedly arrived at the U.S. Capitol for his swearing-in. The sign is partially blocked by the police officers during Bartlet's walk from the limo. See more »

Abbey, the kids are eating sugar.
27 November 2012 | by (Estero Island) – See all my reviews

At Will's spurring (to Toby's great displeasure), Jed is forced to admit that kundunese lives are less important to him than American. This ultimately leads to a re-write of the inauguration speech at the 11th hour, announcing a globe-wide doctrine of intolerance for oppression. Will is promoted from temp to Deputy Communications Director. It's all well done, but not without a little gulp at the realization that Sam is really gone (even though he has a couple more episodes). The flirtation between Josh and Donna on the way to the ball, is more brazen than anything seen before...so bawdy that it feels like something that can't be backtracked (though they manage to for several more seasons). Jill Sobule plays herself.
