The historical figure has 3 T's, the fictional character has 2. The change was never explained.--StG 15:57, 5 April 2006 (UTC)
New Hampshire State Board of Education?Edit
I know it's on his wikipedia page and the 1000+ Wikipedia mirrors, but I can't find the source for the statement that Bartlet served on New Hampshire's Board of Education. He had to have started politics somewhere, and that's the best place, I would just like a source.--Tim Thomason 17:28, 29 September 2006 (UTC)
-- I am reasonably confident that this confusion comes about because of his discussion of Elliot Roush, his first political opponent, running for office in New Hampshire as a school board member where the girls attended school. I don't believe that he ever served as a member of a school board, as he mentions in that episode that he defeated Elliot Roush in his first political campaign when he was elected to the state house. 184.108.40.206 21:07, June 2, 2012 (UTC)
- That episode was The White House Pro-Am, by the way. I'm not sure if we did, but we may want to use the fact that he never lost an election in his life. 18:05, April 11, 2013
Jed's Siblings Edit
The beginning of the wiki described Jed as the younger of two sons, but in "Two Cathedrals", during the flashback when Jed first meets Mrs. Landingham, I am pretty sure that his father introduces him as the 'eldest' son. I'll admit to hearing problems, so I could be wrong, but that might be worth a listen for someone else.220.127.116.11 21:09, June 2, 2012 (UTC)
Can't remember Edit
I'm hoping that somebody can help me out with this question. There is a scene where the president says ,to rule over everything is to rule over nothing, I cannot remember what the exact quote is or what episode it was. If anyone can remember please reply.

Possible legal education?Edit
In Bartlet's speech at the start of 1x04 (Five Votes Down), he says the following, starting from 1m48s:
"You know, I had a civil procedure professor once. He said when the law is on your side, argue the law. And when the facts are on your side, argue the facts. If you don't have the law on your side and you don't have the facts on your side, bang your fist on the defence table as hard as you can!"
"Civil Procedure" is a law subject, usually a compulsory one, in just about every tertiary legal curriculum in the common law world. This suggests he studied Law at some stage. 22.214.171.124 16:37, February 20, 2015 (UTC)
