Storyline

The administration is concerned that the newly elected Congress will be less likely to pass the nuclear test ban treaty, and so considers recalling the outgoing Congress to push it through. A Ukranian reformist politician breaches diplomatic protocol by arriving at the White House and demanding to meet with the President. Sam continues to underestimate Ainsley when he asks her to summarize a position paper on small business hiring practices. C.J.'s personal and professional relationship with Danny becomes more complex as she needs him to leak a story but also wants to punish his newspaper for their unflattering recent coverage.
