A Very Merry West Wing Christmas: Day Five

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas, or Hanukah if you're Jewish (It's day five, right?), or if you don't celebrate at all, then happy Thursday!!!  Okay, last episode, and this is going to be short and sweet -- not because I don't like this ep -- mostly because I have plans to go see Marley & Me with friends at 9 and I can't be late.  So, on with the show:

Abu El Banat (Ep. 5.09)
Written by: Debora Cahn
Directed by: Lesli Linka Glatter

Episode Description (from NBC):
The festive Christmas spirit at the annual White House tree-lighting is dimmed when the President (Martin Sheen) learns that Christian relief workers have been jailed in Islamic northern Sudan while he welcomes his three headstrong daughters -- including the returning Zoey (Elisabeth Moss) -- and is surprised to learn that his son-in-law (Steven Eckholdt) 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 (Richard Schiff) tries to keep the administration from being bogged down in a debate -- and clashes with Will (Joshua Malina) when he tries to convince the Vice President to address the political hot potato.
