The presidential motorcade is parked at the side of the road by Arlington National Cemetery. Leo winds up a cell-phone conversation by a car, then heads toward the graveyard. POTUS is out there, talking to a gravestone, while Charlie stands a respectable distance behind him. They're both holding flowers. Bartlet tells the gravestone that he's seeing a shrink, then admits that he feels silly talking out loud. But it wouldn't be nearly as silly as having us hear his thoughts like on a soap opera. He says, "I can't believe it's been a year. Anyway...." And then he puts the flowers at the grave -- revealed to that of Dolores Landingham and her husband, Henry -- and walks off. That wasn't very warm. But then again, what else exactly do you say to a grave?
The camera stays on Jed as he meets up with Leo, denying us the opportunity to hear what Charlie had to say. ("They're adding two people to the cast, yet I still can't get a decent storyline!") Jed wants to know what's going on. Leo wants to wait until they're someplace a little less sacred than a graveyard, but Jed insists. They pedenecroconference as Leo explains that Shareef was recorded at a meeting with two Muslim clerics in Bechar. Three Arabic experts translated the conversation. Leo hands over a notepad with the translation as they arrive back at the motorcade. It reads, "The enemy imagines he is secure. The bridge did not fall. He looks down from his high -- or elevated -- place or places, but our great victory is still assured. There will be other moments.... I have brought him low. I will do it again." Well, that was a little vague. It sounds like a Rambaldi prophecy or something. They look concerned at each other, then get into the car. The motorcade takes off. Did they just ditch Charlie? Wait, I think I can see him in the background, getting into a car a couple of vehicles back. Why doesn't he ride with the president? He is Jed's aide, after all.
