On the Day Before


Episode Info

The staff tries to prevent President Bartlet's estate-tax veto from being overridden by the GOP. Bartlet (Martin Sheen) himself turns on the old charm with Jack Buckland (Kevin Tighe), a Democratic governor who is thinking of running for president against Jed. Presidential aide Charlie Young (Dulé Hill) is encouraged by one and all to accept an immunity deal when called to testify in the investigation of the MS "cover-up." And C.J. (Allison Janney) crosses swords with obstreperous TV entertainment reporter Sherri Wexler (Mary Mara).
