"Stirred" is episode 61 of The West Wing.


When a large truck carrying uranium fuel rods crashes in a remote Idaho tunnel, Bartlet's staff prepares for a potential environmental—or terrorist—crisis. Meanwhile, Bartlet's stealthily composed electoral strategy may exclude Vice President John Hoynes from the next campaign, and staffer reactions range from interested to horrified. Secretly aware that his fate is in question, Hoynes ponders how to promote one of his favorite bills, one that would provide Internet access to low-income households; he works with Sam to resolve the issue and makes a personal sacrifice in the process. Also, Hoynes attends the same Alcoholics Anonymous meeting as Leo, and Leo prompts him to tell the President of his condition. Charlie regrets filing his tax return online, after heeding the meddling Bartlet's advice and not getting the refund he'd expected. At Donna's request, Josh seeks a presidential proclamation honoring the retirement of her favorite teacher, but the task proves more difficult than he first imagined. Hoynes tells the President his truth, and the President decisively ends any speculation about Hoynes' future in the White House.
