In protest of a bill supported by the Bartlet Administration, aging senator Howard Stackhouse stages a seemingly endless filibuster, much to the chagrin and amazement of the White House staff. Meanwhile, Toby questions the vice president's motives and C.J. fears she may have lost a gift bestowed upon the president by the Egyptian government. George Coe guest stars as Senator Stackhouse, a character who will continue to be a thorn in the side of the Bartlet staff in later episodes.
