Descriptions

From TVGuide.com:
Rep. Matthew Santos (Jimmy Smits) gets friendly with Republicans over a Patients' Bill of Rights. And the first American soldier dies in Gaza peacekeeping mission, and his father is no fan of the president. This will be an early test for new press secretary Annabeth Schott (Kristin Chenoweth). Meanwhile, Leo spars with his nurse and Charlie begins his White House job.
From NBC:
When a U.S. peacekeeping compound is attacked and American soldiers are killed, the White House struggles to contain the story even as the father of one of the slain soldiers speaks out against the mission. Meanwhile, Democratic Congressman Santos (Jimmy Smits) attaches his patients' bill of rights to a Republican piece of legislation -- and effectively keeps the Democratic elements in line while maintaining a Republican agenda. Also, Leo (John Spencer) gets a lesson in life and business from his nurse.
