|Mentioned in:||"Day 7: 11:00pm-12:00am"|
Bob Justman was one of the persons considered by President Allison Taylor at about 11:10pm to be the replacement for Ethan Kanin as the White House Chief of Staff. Taylor entertained him as a candidate because he was associate counsel for three years and worked closely with Ethan. Olivia Taylor supported another man, Rick Berman. Until Ethan Kanin returned several hours later at the end of Day 7, the spot was filled by Olivia.
