A day in the lives of presidential candidates Bob Russell, Matt Santos, and Arnold Vinick, who are in Iowa trying to gain support for their campaigns. Iowa is the first state in the nation to hold their presidential caucuses, and issues affecting farmers and rural areas are the focus. The most important issue on the table is the large federal subsidies for ethanol fuel given to corn growers, which is supported by Iowa residents but seen as naked pandering by the rest of the country. Josh continues to clash with Santos over winning votes instead of proposing radical policy. Donna and Josh continue to avoid speaking about the state of their relationship. Written by

Senator Arnold Vinick: "I could take these people to a DMZ, it wouldn't take their minds off ethanol and abortion." The reference to the DMZ (De-Militarized Zone) in Korea is possibly a reference to Alan Alda's role as Hawkeye Pierce in M*A*S*H, which was set during the Korean War. See more
When Santos and Lyman go to the airport, you see the FBO (Fixed Base Operator) on the field is named "Glanford Aviation", and most of the aircraft registrations begin with the letter C. Supposedly set in Iowa, Glanford Aviation Services is at the Hamilton Civic Airport, in Mount Hope, Ontario, Canada. This would also explain the letter C registration, which identifies the aircraft as Canadian. See more
