POLITICS SHED UNWANTED LIGHT ON BARTLET'S SCIENTIST-DAUGHTER WHILE FIRST LADY CAVORTS WITH THE 'SESAME STREET' MUPPETS FOR A PSA -- The President (Martin Sheen) explodes when a rival conservative congresswoman (guest star Cherry Jones, "The Perfect Storm") seeks to torpedo funding for a controversial medical study by the National Institute of Health by exposing the fact that Bartlet's daughter Ellie (guest star Nina Siemaszko) is working there as a scientist. Meanwhile, as Toby (Richard Schiff) searches for the internal White House leak that led to Ellie's press scrutiny, Josh (Bradley Whitford) works to convince an old college friend (guest star Michael Gaston) to stay the course for his blocked confirmation as a judge on the 6th Circuit federal court. Elsewhere, C.J. (Allison Janney) urges Abbey (Stockard Channing) to increase her public profile as the First Lady and a working doctor. Part of her plan includes educating children about medicine via a public service announcement with Big Bird, Elmo, Rosita and Zoey. John Spencer, Dule Hill, Janel Moloney, Joshua Malina and Lily Tomlin also star. TV-PG
