Commander In Chief: The Elephant in the Room

When Mac's appendix bursts on Air Force One, Templeton becomes acting President since the Vice President is not on board. Meanwhile, the airline strike is taking a toll on Memorial Day weekend air traffic, one of the busiest travel times of the year, and Templeton, viewing his unique opportunity as a test-drive for his Presidential plans, handles the situation in a unique manner.
