The West Wing: The U.S. Poet Laureate / Season: 3 / Episode: 17 (2002)
March 27, 2002
Bartlet makes a disparaging comment about a potential Republican nominee after a television interview, apparently not realizing that he is still being recorded. Meanwhile, Toby tries to dissuade the newly named U.S. poet laureate, Tabatha Fortis (Laura Dern), from publicly objecting to the government's lack of support for a treaty on land mines; Sam offers Ainsley Hayes a big promotion; and Josh discovers he has an internet message board following, and interpreting, everything he does - with mixed reactions.
