Regarding Toby and the leak:
It is still difficult for me to still buy that move as in character for Toby. Even with the fact of his brother having been an astronaut, it doesn’t right for him to have cracked and leaked classified information. He’s too together, too smart for that.
Something makes me think that it’s not as simple as Toby leaking this information, but taking the fall for someone (for Leo?). We certainly know that Toby won’t be in prison in 2 years time – maybe he does go to prison and Jed pardons him as he leaves office (which all departing Presidents do for their friends who got caught)
We do know that in the next three years Toby gets a job teaching at Columbia University and at the end of that period, he is forgiven enough by Jed to be invited to the Dedication of the Presidential Library. But the fact that he was teaching at Columbia and was invited to the dedication ceremony means that he might not have been a convicted felon sitting in a Federal penitentiary.
By the wayThe West Wing has tapped veteran newsman Forrest Sawyer to moderate Nov. 6’s "live presidential debate" between candidates Jimmy Smits and Alan Alda," the NY Post says.

The problem with that is that what they were saying to me 50 years ago. Blacks shouldn’t serve with Whites. It would disrupt the unit. You know what? It did disrupt the unit. The unit got over it. The unit changed. I’m an admiral in the U.S. Navy and chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff…Beat that with a stick.
