Storyline

The nuclear accident in California spells bad news for the Vinick campaign, following the revelation of Vinick's prior lobbying for the plant involved in the accident and his support of nuclear power in general. With Vinick having lost his lead in many states, the Republican party recommends a change in staff and message. Meanwhile, amidst a celebratory mood in the Santos campaign Donna and Josh have a "moment" alone. Written by Murray Chapman

Goofs

When Josh is talking to the White House Advanced Scheduling regarding Leo's inability to attend a night meeting, he takes the cell phone from Annabeth and placed the back of the cell phone on his ear. The front face of the cell phone is clearly visible when the camera pans to Josh's left. This is corrected in the next shot. See more »
