Synopsis by Hal Erickson
On the eve of her birthday party, First Lady Abbey Bartlet (Stockard Channing) runs afoul of the medical board vis-à-vis her controversial treatment of Jed's (Martin Sheen) multiple sclerosis. Elsewhere, Sam (Rob Lowe) must deal with prickly Senator Enlow (Robin Thomas) over the issue of a controversial superconductor. British ambassador Lord Marbury (Roger Rees) protests the administration's decision to invite an IRA terrorist to the White House. And Donna (Janel Moloney) loses her security clearance...because, technically, she is not an American citizen.
