Storyline

Senator Arnold Vinick easily wins the Republican nomination on the night of the New Jersey primary, but has difficulty picking a running mate. Choosing Reverend Don Butler would virtually guarantee him the presidency, but their differing views on abortion and religion would make it a political union rather than one based on shared ideology. The Democratic nomination is a toss-up between Santos and Russell; Hoynes is running a distant third. With no clear nominee going into the convention, the Democratic party risks appearing unsure about both Santos and Russell - a position that President Bartlet does not want the Republicans to be able to exploit.

Trivia

While riding in his limousine with his campaign manager, Senator Vinick (Alan Alda) tells her that the answer to her son's question about the area of a parallelogram is "Length times width...it's the same as a rectangle." But the correct formula for finding the area of a parallelogram is base times height. Length and width are poorly defined properties when the corners are not right angles. See more »

Goofs

The area of parallelogram isn't length times width but base times height. See more »

Quotes

Sen. Arnold Vinick: I guess you've seen this problem develop today about my going to church.
Governor Ray Sullivan R-WV: You mean not going to church. Yeah. That's all right. I go enough for both of us.
Sen. Arnold Vinick: I've been reading about your positions on a lot of things, but there are some environmental issues you haven't had to deal with in West Virginia.
Governor Ray Sullivan R-WV: Here's the deal with the issues, Arnie: I can get in line with you on everything except abortion. Nothing's going to make me change my mind on that, but I'm guessing you wouldn't want me to.
