The festive Christmas spirit at the annual White House tree-lighting is dimmed when the President learns that Christian relief workers have been jailed in Islamic northern Sudan while he welcomes his three headstrong daughters - including the returning Zoey - and is surprised to learn that his son-in-law wants to run for Congress in New Hampshire.
Meanwhile, when the licenses of some doctors in Oregon are suspended after they administer drugs in an assisted suicide, Toby tries to keep the administration from being bogged down in a debate - and clashes with Will when he tries to convince the Vice President to address the political hot potato.
