WEST WING, THE: IN EXCELSIS DEO (TV)

Summary

One in this series of dramas about the day-to-day running of the White House and the lives of its staff. In this episode, as Mandy is frantically preparing the White House for Christmas, Josh consults with Leo on a strategy for dealing with the imminent exposure of the chief of staff's pill-popping past. Josh suggests they contact Sam's call-girl friend, Laurie, and ask her to give them information to use in a counterstrike against the Republicans, but Leo vetoes the idea.

Meanwhile, C. J. is up in arms about hate-crime legislation when it is discovered that a gay high-school senior has been beaten to death by a group of thirteen year olds, and Toby is haunted by the death of a Korean War veteran who has died of exposure during Christmas week.

Highlights include President Bartlet's shopping trip and Mrs. Landingham's heart-to-heart talk with Charlie about her holiday melancholia. Commercials deleted.
