It's Tuesday. C.J.'s holding a press briefing. She explains that the INS will be conducting something called a "credible fear interview," which does not determine whether or not asylum will be granted, but rather determines the credibility of a detainee's fear of being harmed if returned. Steve, a reporter, asks if the White House will be meeting with leaders of the Christian community to hear their input. C.J. says, "Yes, we will. In the following days we will be meeting with the Reverend Al Caldwell, members of Beijing's embassy, and INS agents. The President has asked Josh Lyman and Sam Seaborn to run these meetings, so it's entirely possible by week's end that we will have alienated Christians, China, and our own government." Hee! It's a very funny line, but I can't believe C.J. would say it at a press briefing. C.J. ends the briefing by saying that's all she has on the refugees, and she was going to release the list of recess appointments but is now waiting a day. "I can tell you that the list has been sent to the appropriate committee chairs, and I imagine one of them will leak it to you sometime this afternoon." She reminds them that the Presidential Turkey Pardoning will occur on Wednesday afternoon. Thursday morning, POTUS will give his Thanksgiving proclamation in the Rose Garden, which will be attended by kids associated with various children's social and charitable groups. One reporter asks C.J., "Will you be leading them in song?" C.J.: "I'm sorry?" The reporter explains that the Press Secretary usually leads the kids in song. C.J. glances away, but without hesitating too much -- although I'm sure her tuition bills are flashing before her eyes -- affirms this. As she walks off the podium, she mutters to Carol, "I gotta learn some songs." Hey, what's wrong with "The Jackal?"
