Office of O. C.J. hands Jed a copy of the statement on human rights that he and the president of China (whose name keeps sounding like "Leon" to me -- I know that can't be right) will issue at the end of the summit. Jed glances at it and asks why there's nothing about Tibet. Toby (who is also in the room, along with Kate) tells him that Tibet is mentioned -- they just couldn't use the actual word "Tibet." Jed asks Toby to show him the sentence that refers to Tibet, and Kate tells Jed that while he's "in the room," he can say whatever he likes to the Chinese president, but that the joint statement has to be agreed upon in advance. Jed says that he plans to hammer the Chinese on Tibet, and Kate tells him to expect them to hammer back on the subject of Indian reservations.
Cut to another conference room. Josh is looking over his shoulder, where he is able to see some of what is happening in the Oval until someone closes the door. I do not understand how that line of sight worked. Josh is meeting with the Secretary of Transportation, who is trying to make excuses for the Department's failure to submit a budget proposal on time. The Secretary offers a completely lame excuse when he tells Josh that he "assumed [Josh was] going on the China trip, and [they'd] have another week to get [their] homework done." Josh tells the Secretary, and some other assembled people, "This is more important than the China trip. This is the budget of the United States of America." Transportation is the only department that hasn't submitted its budget proposal, which is delaying any attempt to assemble a complete budget to submit to Congress. Josh sees something through the door and excuses himself from the room for a moment. On his way out, he's waylaid by Donna, who tells him that because Vinick is confirmed for 11:15, Josh's meeting with OMB had to be moved up. She also reminds him about "that other thing." Josh: "What other thing?" Donna: "Me." Josh is pretty noncommittal, telling her, "Oh. Right. Sure."
