  • This episode had all the characteristics that I loved in the early episodes.

    The West Wing, in the beginning, had a knack for taking real world and pressing issues and merging them effortlessly with the multi-layered personalities of a neurotic staff. This episode was no different, an election which was anybody's game, the death of the beloved Leo character, and the tension of Josh, just below the surface and threatening to bubble out. While I, like many people, mainly watched the West Wing just to watch the emotions between Josh and Donna, I was not disappointed to see them come to a head and be dealt in typical Josh and Donna style. With irreverence and humor.
