Sam follows C.J. and enters a meeting room where Bruno and other staffers are already talking with POTUS. C.J. says that Bruno thinks they "dump the whole thing." Bruno: "I think forty-four people are dead and we can't give a speech on education." Sam is concerned that they'll look opportunistic if they talk about the Iowa bombing at a campaign event: "Plus, we're using the teachers like props." C.J. says that POTUS has to mention it. Sam agrees. Bruno: "There are dead children, and then you segue to what?" They don't know. They ask Jed's feelings. He says it's a seven-ten split, and asks them to work on it for a while. They will. He's going to his office to call Leo.
Back at the White House, Leo comes out to the security desk in the lobby -- where Jordan Kendall is signing in -- and instructs the guard to "let her on in." Jordan greets Leo; he says, "You look sensational in your Gabriella Something thing there." It's basically a nice suit. I love her necklace, though. She thanks him. He gripes: "'Cloak and dagger.'" They pedeconference as she counters that it was a single sentence in a two-page note. He's also irritated that she sent him a note. She says she was asked here on business which she usually conducts at her office. He says he was going to come there, but explains just how indiscreet he thought it would be for the Chief of Staff to be seen at her law firm. She just meant that she doesn't feel she's cut out for high-security, back-room secretive shenanigans: "It's like you're in the Mafia." Leo says it may be like that, but he's not in the Mafia: "I work for the good guys." Isn't it interesting how no matter who you are, or what crimes you commit, you always think you're the good guy? Jordan complains Leo was never available by phone. He says that's a whole other "kettle of beans," adding, "And we can have that discussion, but history's shown that if you just wait and tell it to a divorce lawyer, you can have half my stuff." Jordan doesn't want half his stuff. I'll take it, if she's not interested. Leo: "You don't know -- some of it's good stuff." For one thing, he's got all of Nigella's incredibly expensive cookbooks.
