Storyline

A day in the lives of presidential candidates Bob Russell, Matt Santos, and Arnold Vinick, who are in Iowa trying to gain support for their campaigns. Iowa is the first state in the nation to hold their presidential caucuses, and issues affecting farmers and rural areas are the focus. The most important issue on the table is the large federal subsidies for ethanol fuel given to corn growers, which is supported by Iowa residents but seen as naked pandering by the rest of the country. Josh continues to clash with Santos over winning votes instead of proposing radical policy. Donna and Josh continue to avoid speaking about the state of their relationship. Written by Murray Chapman

Trivia

According to DVD commentary by director Alex Graves, the way each of the characters sleeps (Josh with a pillow over his head, etc.) is modeled after how their actors actually sleep. See more »

Goofs

The episode shows a day in life of three presidential candidates, all starting in the same motel in Iowa at 5:46 a.m. However, in all scenes of the wakeup calls, the sun can be seen streaming through the window blinds. At that time of the morning in February in Iowa, dawn isn't until at least 1 hour later, let alone full daylight. See more »

Quotes

Bob Mayer: Will you at least look at the ethanol report?
Senator Arnold Vinick: It's a classic study of a stupid policy rammed down our throats by special interests. Makes about as much sense as building patio furniture out of corn. But sure, I'll take a look.
