The West Wing: The U.S. Poet Laureate

After Bartlet's remarks about a potential Republican presidential nominee, C.J. is dispatched to do damage control. Toby meets with the new U.S. poet laureate to try to convince her to not speak out about the United States' non-support for a land-mines treaty. Meanwhile, Sam cuts Ainsley's vacation short when he needs help spinning Bartlet's remarks; Bartlet thinks about saving a failing company; and Josh is intrigued when he finds out he has an Internet fan-site: LemonLyman.com.
