Episode Summary

EDIT
Josh is anguished when he realizes that his successful trade negotiation skills managed to create the opportunity for a computer company to move 17,000 jobs to India, which means that the administration can't deliver on the promises he and Jed made to the head of the communications workers union during Jed's first presidential campaign; C.J. is unsuccessful in lighting a fire under the press to write about the malfeasance she discovers in the FCC's new media ownership rules until she hits them where they sit; Donna lobbies for an increase in her job responsibilities, and gives Josh the silent treatment until she lands a place on a Congressional delegation to the Middle East; Jed asks Fitz to come out of retirement to accompany the Congressional delegation to the Middle East; Josh gets unsettling news about Ryan's new job and the lessons Ryan learned working for him; Kate Harper, the new Deputy National Security Advisor, fails to win over Jed and Debbie in her first day on the job; C.J. once again completely misreads Ben's intentions when he attempts to reach her on the day she leaves for Brussels.moreless
