Storyline

The president, first lady and w.w. staff travel to Orange County, Calif., to campaign for Sam's bid to win the 47th District congressional seat -- the Nov. winner in the heavily Republican district was, amazingly, a liberal Democrat who, more amazingly, had died a few weeks prior. The president orders Toby to fire Sam's campaign manager, a staunch realist, and take over the campaign with a more idealistic approach. Some conservative voters approach Andrea Wyatt in a bar and give her grief about her out-of-wedlock pregnancy, and Toby and Charlie step in forcefully, landing them in jail. Donna talks, on behalf of Sam's campaign, with a state labor leader who turns out to be a Communist. Written by meebly

Trivia

CJ (Allison Janney) makes a big deal about some miscommunication between AF1 and the CHP, stating Interstate 5 has been closed (presumably for the motorcade) and the CHP thought they would land in Santa Ana when they are supposed to land in Los Alamitos. Despite this comment from CJ, later in the episode Sam mentions airport traffic at John Wayne being on hold, implying AF1 landed there. Also, getting to Newport Beach from Santa Ana or Los Alamitos would not require the 5 Freeway, but the 405 Freeway. There is also mention of people being stuck in Disneyland waiting for the motorcade. We don't know where these people have to go to get home, but the route from either airport to Newport doesn't go anywhere near Disneyland. See more »

Goofs

In this episode, and in a few leading up to this, C.J. Craig and others refer to the country of Zaire being involved in multilateral talks regarding the conflict in the REK. Zaire no longer existed after 1997. It had become the Democratic Republic of Congo long before this episode was ever written. See more »
