Kate enters Will's office and shuts the door. After taking an extremely defensive stance that only accentuates the dress's horribleosity, she tells him that the NSA position was offered to Glen. She admits that she's young and that it was a long shot, but Will commiserates that she still wanted it. Something about that is familiar and supportive, and I continue to like whatever it is that's between the two of them. He tries to reassure her, but also just states, "That sucks." "Sucks a lot," she agrees. Score one for Will, knowing when a girl just needs some agreement and a few moments of wallowing. She asks him about the DCCC, and he tells her that the offer was good, but also could end up making him insane -- case in point being his obsession with this Oregon race, already. He explains that he thought he could find the right person, "but as it turns out, there's a real dearth of ballsy Oregonians." That's a state motto if I ever heard one. Kate (while cleaning out her nails -- my own personal bad meeting habit) tells him to get someone else, and he exposits that if someone buys a house 180 days before the primary, he'll establish residency, but Will still doesn't think that will work against a fifteen-year incumbent. Kate continues talking him through it, asking what traits he's looking for in a candidate, other than Oregon residency. Will: "Place needs a fresh face -- somebody smart but not so wonky that you can't put him in front of a TV camera." Kate assures him that's not a sticking point, and that if he finds someone good, Will can train that person to handle the media. She goes on to expound on all the experience Will has and everything he could teach this person, and then looks up and stares, gaping. He mirrors her gape; they gape. He finally laughs out a "No." He insists that it makes no sense, and she insists that it does; he declares that he's not moving to Oregon, and she just tells him that he is. Will starts to bring a "We" argument into it, but Kate silences that: "We're what?" As he protests, she declares, "You'll win." He gives this a moment and slowly begins to suggest, "You could..." It's her turn to shoot down moving to Oregon. She's not letting him not do it. Those two crazy kids.
