Luke asks Lorelai if his customers are getting in her way. She says they're fine, and asks Lane if her band will play at Jackson's rally. She says they will. Lorelai tells her that Jackson already picked out a song. Luke finally has had enough of the shenanigans and tells Lorelai she can't do this in here. She wants to also use the diner for the night of the election to have a place to go that's close to the stage, while they wait for election results. Luke doesn't want his place to become the political headquarters. Four times he says: "You cannot gather here." Lorelai says that sleeping with Luke is getting her nothing. Don't you have an inn to run? Luke tells her to get out of there. She doesn't. Jackson runs in to grab Davey and take him outside to see some people. Sookie coaches Davey from the other side of the glass, telling him to do the clapping thing. Davey does some cute clapping. Taylor invites people on the street to come in his shoppe for free ice cream. Sookie calls Taylor's trick "dirty." Lorelai says he just needs some lying Swift Boat captains to complete the ambush. Sookie worries that they'll lose now. Lorelai says they just have to stay focused and do this one vote at a time. She gets back on her cell phone, prompting Sookie to ask if she's calling Ben Affleck. She calls Rory, and asks her to come to town to vote for Jackson on Tuesday. Can't Rory vote absentee? Lorelai tries to ask how CuteDean is, and sounds like she wants to scream, "Why haven't you left him yet?" Rory says he's good and hangs up. Sookie asks what's with the weird tone. Lorelai says she's trying so hard to sound totally cool with the situation that she sounds totally freaked out. Sookie asks how she could be totally cool. Lorelai admits she's leaning towards totally cool, approaching cool, but you know, she's a thinking human being and can see why this whole thing isn't cool at all. In fact, Jackson might want to prevent Rory from supporting him, so he can keep the rest of Stars Hollow on his side. Jackson returns Davey, calling him "politically useless."
