Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Sam (Rob Lowe) and Bruno (Ron Silver) set aside their differences in hopes of persuading labor leader Victor Campos (Miguel Sandoval) to throw his support toward President Bartlet's re-election campaign. As Congress battles over the estate-tax issue, the governor of California takes issue with the ecology-driven decision made by Bartlet (Martin Sheen) to let a huge forest fire burn itself out. The staff goes into spin mode to attack Special Prosecutor Rollins (Nicholas Pryor) as he investigates the possibility that Bartlet's cover-up of his medical condition is an impeachable offense. And Donna (Janel Moloney) is set up on a fateful date with a Republican named Clifford Calley (Mark Feuerstein).
