Out in the pit, Josh joins Will and Donna, who are watching Governor Bundy on the monitors. He's saying that he's decided to keep his promise to the people of Pennsylvania to be "a full-time governor," and his promise to his family to be "a full-time father." Don't forget full-time shoe salesman. Those fat women won't just insult themselves, you know. Will says, "How lucky can we get?" Josh doesn't think Will and Russell will ever get luckier than this. I really hope that's true, because it would mean an unbroken string of failure for Will. And I would enjoy seeing that.
C.J. is telling Jed that Millie wants him to use the remainder of the flight to rest, so she's canceling any other meetings. Just then, Toby sticks his head in to tell Jed that Governor Bundy has pulled out of the race. Jed's interest is naturally piqued, and C.J. admonishes Toby: "Mr. President, this is exactly what we're not going to do. You need to rest, so we're not going to bring you anything you don't need to know immediately. But we mean real rest, not studying briefing books." Jed asks her if she's going to watch him rest, and she threatens to do just that if she has to. He tells her to get out of the office.
Josh and Leo are discussing Bundy's withdrawal from the presidential race. Leo thinks that Bundy's claim of dropping the race for family reasons is bogus. He tells Josh that Bundy and Vinick are very close, and have been ever since Bundy was a Senate staffer during Vinick's first term. Josh doesn't think friendship would trump ambition, but Leo wonders whether Bundy thought "that it's not worth winning the Democratic nomination this time it if it means he has to run against Vinick in the general." Josh is still certain that Vinick could never get the nomination because he's not conservative enough. They both figure that, with Bundy out of the race, either Bingo Bob or Hoynes will get the Democratic nomination. As for who will get the Republican nomination, Leo thinks it's wide open: "They've been out of power for eight years and they're desperate. Probably why Vinick thinks he has a shot." Josh still doesn't think that's likely, but Leo tells them that Vinick is an amazing campaigner. He'll "sound smarter and more honest than any Republican [the voters] have ever seen. Because he is." Just so it's clear that all the other Republicans are lying morons. They both realize that if Vinick wins the Republican nomination, he's liable to win California in the general election. Which means there is no way a Democrat could beat him. Commercials.
