Unfortunately, noone signed up for recapping this episode and I am really busy, so I couldn't yet rewatch it myself. So you only get a synopsis.

A crucial banking bill is at risk when political rivals of environmentally sensitive President Bartlet (attach a land-use rider to it that would allow strip-mining some of the Montana wilderness. C.J. tries to stamp out rumors that the Chief Executive chastised the Vice President during a cabinet meeting. An overworked Leo isn't too keen on his independent daughter Mallory, dating the handsome Sam (Rob Lowe). C.J. continues to fend-off the romantic charms of a perceptive reporter with a knack for sniffing out juicy stories. Former lovers Mandy and Josh clash over the administration's attempt to jettison the land-use rider that might also ruin passage of the more important banking bill.

Not much in the way of discussion questions since I haven't yet rewatched, but in case anyone can think of any, feel free to post them in the comments (or, as always, feel free to just post your comments and feelings about the episodes - the questions are only meant as starting points).

I watched this a while ago and I need to rewatch again to actually discuss it. I just have to vent about how annoying I find the whole theme of fathers protecting their precious daughters from other men. The subplot with Malory and Sam bugs the hell out of me.

Saw the episode. I just have to vent about how annoying I find the whole theme of fathers protecting their precious daughters from other men. Agreed.
