"20 Hours in America" (Part 2 of 2)

From Part 2 of 2:

[ The President pauses a photographer before a photo with a man who has met every President since Hoover and met Hoover (and shook his hand) the day before the Great Depression started. Bartlett asks the guy jokingly who is favorite President was after explaining that he assured his grand daughter it would be him. The guy responds, "Oh, no, I would have to say it was Truman." Bartlett responds with something like, "Oh, well, I was kidding, but Truman was a good guy if you're into that sort of thing." As the President keeps thinking about how far the Dow fell (a record) that day and how he's hoping for the Tokyo markets to do very well, he pauses and goes over to talk to Charlie about stopping the photo op because he's superstitious... After a short conversation... Charlie goes over to the photo op guy... ]

Charlie: "I'm sorry, we're going to have to reschedule [this picture] for tomorrow."

Picture Guy: "Oh, ... why?"

Charlie: "You're spooking the hell out of the Presi..."

President Bartlett: "Scheduling."
