Episode Summary

EDIT
Disgruntled that Abbey has decided that the Bartlets will be spending the Thanksgiving holiday at Camp David instead of New Hampshire, Bartlet takes out his pique by boring everyone within earshot over his plans to cook Thanksgiving dinner, going so far as to call "The Butterball Hotline" to ask questions about cooking the stuffing. Josh works to expedite the return of a 13 year old Georgia boy whose parents sent him to Italy after he murdered his teacher. When Italy refuses to extradite the boy to a death penalty state, Josh makes a deal with the district attorney prosecuting the case, offering him unlimited financial backing for his reelection campaign in exchange for his not seeking the death penalty. Sam struggles with the revised OMB poverty level formula which will instantly create four million new poor people until Bruno finds a way to spin it to the administration's advantage. On Thanksgiving Eve, C.J. tries to find someone, anyone, from Interior to meet with two Stockbridge-Munsee Indians who plan to stand in the lobby, in full view of the media, until they receive an answer on an application they submitted 15 years ago to buy back land stolen from them.moreless
