Ron Erlich was named Chairman of the Federal Reserve after Bernard Dahl passed away. Under normal circumstances, the President would have named Ron Erlich, who was Vice-Chairman of the Federal Reserve at the time, to become the new Chairman. However, President Bartlet wanted to wait one day before appointing him because Erlich dated Abigail Barltlet, President Bartlet's wife, in 1970 for nine months. First Lady Bartlet let out Wire magazine piece stating she supported Erlich before President Bartlet could publicly make a decision which caused a little news storm.
