White House press conference. I'm not sure where this is being held, but it's not the Briefing Room. The press is assembled, but the conference has not started. Toby enters the room with Cody, and reminds him that this is a nationally televised press conference and that he is not to speak unless called upon. Cody takes a seat in the middle of the accredited journalists who are present. So I guess he's Jeff Gannon Jr. But hopefully without all the sex stuff. Because not only is he a kid, he's not a very attractive kid. Toby walks back to the entrance, where C.J. tells him that Jed is on the way. Jed enters with Annabeth. As he's proceeding to the podium, Toby tells him, "If you're in the mood, there's a young man in the back you might want to call on." The press conference begins.
Capitol. In the Veep's office, a Congresswoman is putting on her earrings, and she tells the group, "I love you all, but two days without a change of clothes, I may switch parties." People are disgruntled, and some want to leave. Santos asks that they give it another hour, and just then, Donna enters the room and tells them that Haffley just called the vote. Santos asks Arkansas if he has his voting card, and tells him to "go on out there and vote."
Press Conference. Jed calls on Chris for the first question, and she asks him if he has any regrets. He tells them that his biggest regret has been the inability to contain the deficit: "I know an election cycle is warming up, and no one wants to hear about budget deficits, but both sides are gonna hear about them from me. That's my campaign promise." I'd be more excited if I thought this was going anywhere, but so far we haven't heard anything about the whole "good fight" thing they started talking about in "365 Days," so I'm not holding my breath.
Capitol. Santos leads his gaggle of members through the halls of Congress. They're striding confidently in a great flying wedge formation.
Outside the House chamber, Haffley is shaking the hands of Republicans who have voted when we hear the town crier yell out, "One more vote arriving." It's some dried-up old woman named Angela. Haffley tells her that they've "got this one sewed up."
