Santos gives Josh the news about Helen's speech, and then asks what's going on in Colorado. It turns out that what's going on is that Republican V.P. candidate Sullivan has been spending a lot of time campaigning there. Donna enters, and they discuss who they can send to campaign in Colorado. The only name they can think of is Bingo Bob Russell, the Colorado Kid. Otto leaves to call Russell, and Santos asks whether he should first meet with Anspaugh or with the CIA briefer. Josh tells Santos that, before either of those, he has to get on "the chat." It turns out that Atrios from Eschaton is there. Santos doesn't understand these words, and Josh explains that it's a blog that has raised $300,000 online for the campaign and has almost as many readers as the Philadelphia Inquirer. Someone who is not the actual Atrios enters, and I have to ask, why name-check a real person if you're not going to have him play himself? Maybe it's because the real Atrios doesn't look nearly as geeky as the bespectacled little nerd they found to play him. Everyone knows all us internet types are skinny little geeks with thick glasses.
Back at the U.S. Attorney's conference room, Toby and Alana are, you know, conferring. Alana thinks that the draft indictment is more than enough to convince a grand jury, but Toby thinks that there's no way the prosecutor will actually go ahead with the indictment and screw up the election. Toby accuses the prosecutor of being partisan, and Alana points out that he was appointed by Bartlet. Alana thinks he's just a zealous prosecutor using every tool he has to get at the truth. Toby still thinks he's bluffing. Toby's about to go off on a rant when Alana interrupts him with a deep sigh. Toby asks Alana what she's sighing about. She tells him that if he's trying to protect his brother , he needs to give it up or risk destroying Santos and Leo's chance of winning the election. Toby still thinks the prosecutor is bluffing. Alana: "Are you really prepared to take that chance?"
It's 12:30 PM, and the Santos motorcade is driving on a road outside Quakertown, Pennsylvania. They just passed through Methodistville and Baptistburg, and Lutheranopolis is coming up. On the bus, Lou is on the phone talking to someone about some poll numbers and asking to speak to Edie when Jon Bon Jovi walks up to her and asks, "Is that the latest polling?" Lou immediately hangs up the phone and tells him it is. Jon asks her how it's looking, and she gets all flirty as she tells him things are looking good. Otto tells her that he has Edie on the phone, and Lou snaps at him that she'll call Edie back. Bon Jovi tells her that the polling for Illinois looks cool, and she tells him, "Yeah, it is. And you know what else is cool is your new album." Lou tells him that his album is fantastic, and that the work he's been doing with Habitat for Humanity is fantastic as well.
