Senate investigation into the President's newly nominated Secretary of State, gives light to a secret from the past, which may not only ruin the candidate, but the President's character as well.
In the film, the President denies any knowledge of the blackmail plot against Senator Anderson. In the original novel, the President provides Senator Van Ackerman with the evidence of Anderson's homosexual affair used to blackmail him.
Stanley Danta: Morning, son.
Paperboy: Good morning, senator... thank you.
As the security guard enters Senator Anderson's office the telephone is ringing. The rings (apparently added in post-production) each echo around the office, but the final ring stops abruptly and there is no echo. Even if the caller had hung up in mid-ring, that ring, like the others, would still have briefly reverberated around the room.
