That way... Frank. I'm gonna stop you there.
We are not nominating you for the Secretary of State.
I know, he made you a promise,
but circumstances have changed.
The nature of promises, Linda,
is that they remain immune to changing cicumstances.
Garrett has thought long and hard about this.
And he's decided we need you to stay in Congress.
When was this decision made?
And why wasn't I part of a conversation?
I'm sorry, Frank, if it been up to me,
I wouldn't have waited this long to tell you.
So you knew, you were going to do this.
It has been an evolving discussion.
It's a chickenshit move.
Frank... I was vetted.
Was that a ruse? No.
Let's be absolutely clear,
you wouldn't have won without me.
You're right, but now we have to lead.
And that means making tough choices.
As you know, education is a top priority for us.
A complete federal overhaul.
But it's not just the education, Frank,
Congress has split.
We need you there, more than we need you in the State Department.
I got you hired, Linda.
I wrote the campaign's entire foreign policy platform.
I bring years of Foreign Affairs Committee...
I want to speak to Walker personally.
The decision is made.
We need you, Frank.
Will you stand beside us or not?
Of course, if that's what the President wants.
I'm very glad to hear that.
If not me then who?
that is an excellent choice.
Do you think it'll look clear?
I just want to make sure it doesn't look like
we're neglecting out domestic...
No, no, no, no... I'm gonna say
that we are expanding our mission. Okay.
And we're bringing on a new organization to help us.
They know which one yet?
I'm still looking into a few options, but, um...
Tell me, what did we agree on that we could hire how many new people.
Six? Six, maybe seven.
We'll have enough.
Ooh, it's exciting. Huh?
This, uh, new direction we're heading.
I just don't know where we're gonna fit all the people.
Well, do you think we'll have to look into additional space?
No, no. I'll find a way.
Okay, so make the changes to the power point.
And let's meet again, at 2:30. Okay.
I feel like an idiot leaving messages like this. Call me back.
What is it, Zoe?
Um, I knew you're gonna have your hands full at the White House. So,...
If you need someone to do research, or...
Or punch out background. I think I'll be fine.
Well, if things get hectic, and you need any help...
So you can blog about rubbing shoulders with the big boys.
Wh... What did Lucas tell you?
Look, no offence, Zoey,
But I don't have time to be anyone's training wheels.
I just thought...
No, I was just actually offering to lend a hand.
That's it. I got it.
Claire. You didn't call.
I was... You didn't call me, Francis.
Nine hours, you don't not call me.
Not when it's this big.
