Storyline

Sam meticulously prepares a speech for the President to give to the environmental lobby, but Toby wants to sneak in some criticism of their failure to condemn environmental terrorism. Leo tries to convince the President to support his pet project - a missile defense shield - despite its continued failure to produce results, and the fact that it likely contravenes an anti-ballistic missile treaty. Several countries including Great Britain have sent new ambassadors to Washington to be recognized by the White House. C.J. travels to New York on a delicate mission to ask for a political favor from a comedian. Written by Murray Chapman

Trivia

When Bartlet finally does the credentials ceremony to make Lord John Marbury the British Ambassador to the U.S., he says, "John, let me explain why you've been waiting. I have to see people in the order in which they arrive, and you got beat by Argentina." This was a reference to the 1982 Falklands War, in which Argentine military forces invaded and laid claim to the British-owned Falkland Islands (which lie off the southern Argentine coast). The war, which was the culmination of a centuries-long dispute over the islands' sovereignty, ended in British victory, the deposition of Argentine President Galtieri, a 1983 victory for England's Thatcher government, and almost 1000 total soldiers killed from both sides.
