The West Wing: Debate Camp

The staff goes on a weekend retreat to North Carolina to prepare for the upcoming presidential debates. While preparing, Bartlet must deal with a possible Israeli air attack on Qumar that could light a fire under other Middle Eastern countries. Meanwhile, flashbacks recall Bartlet and the staff's error-filled first days in office; Josh and Donna recall how she almost lost her job over a national security issue; and Toby considers the prospect of parenthood.
