Storyline

Josh and Santos visit New Hampshire to launch the presidential campaign. Josh has experience running national campaigns and has a clear idea about what candidates should and shouldn't do to get elected, but Santos's approach differs dramatically: he believes in talking about big ideas rather than saying whatever he needs to do in order to win votes. This difference in opinion combined with conventional wisdom that says Santos has no chance of winning threaten to sink the campaign before it has begun. Will and Donna are also in New Hampshire, running Vice President Bob Russell's campaign - which puts their interests at odds with those of the Santos campaign. Written by Murray Chapman

Goofs

Santos says that "America is 48th in the world in literacy." International education rankings are commonly cited as a way of saying that American education is inadequate. However, those rankings are highly misleading as they do not control for the portion of the population being educated. In many countries, public education is not universally available, skewing statistics in their favor. See more »
