I wonder if Toby Ziegler is named for Rob Ziegler, Nixon's Press Secretary?
When CJ's absent, like when she went home to Dayton, Ohio, Toby fills in for her as Press Secretary. And the last name connection just hit me.

I don't know but it's an interesting theory. I think it's odd that Toby and on one occasion Josh have filled in for CJ, given that she has deputy press secretaries who are presumably much more qualified.

It was an early episode - season 1 or 2 - and was an unqualified disaster. Yes, buy the DVDs. I have been and its well worth it!

I bought Seasons 1, 2 and 3 yesterday... I've been meaning to for a while, but that Ziegler thing served as a handy reminder.
Just saw the episode with Josh as Press Secretary First season.
