The White House welcomes a world-renowned North Korean pianist for a performance, but Leo worries that the pianist’s wish to defect will interfere with nuclear disarmament talks. The staff works to get Bartlet’s choice for Vice President, Bob Russell, approved by both the House and the Senate, but one “nay” vote could embarrass everyone. Meanwhile, Will and Toby are humiliated when a draft of a speech is accidentally substituted for the final draft of the speech.
