Added DiffLines:
* JerkassHasAPoint: While 'jerkass' is harsh, he's not incapable of defending his decision to support Bob Russell's candidacy to the others, particularly Toby: ** In "No Exit", after putting up with an episode's worth of self-righteous haranguing from Toby as to why he shouldn't be fighting to get Bob Russell the presidency (and almost a season's worth of hostility before that), Will angrily suggests that Toby just hates the possibility of anyone else taking over after Bartlet and demands to know why, instead of staying and taking potshots at Will and Russell, Toby doesn't go out and find a better candidate himself if he feels that strongly about fighting to get the best man possible into the Oval Office. Toby has no reply. * PragmaticHero: He fights tooth and nail to get Bob Russell nominated as the Democratic Party candidate for president primarily because he believes that any Democrat's better than a Republican. This gets him a lot of hostility from Josh and especially Toby, who are more idealistic.

* DrunkWithPower: To a degree; his more {{Jerkass}} tendencies get increasingly pronounced the more he gets used to being both the Vice President and the Democratic Party's presumptive nominee for President.

The Presidents Daughter is no longer a trope.
* ThePresidentsDaughter: There are a few incidents with her safety in the early seasons--obnoxious reporters and lecherous fratboys and the subsequent hammer of the Secret Service. [[spoiler:Then she's abducted after graduation, forcing Bartlet to invoke the 25th Amendment.]]

Added DiffLines:
* {{Hypocrite}}: In one episode, Ainsley and Sam get into an argument about elitism, during which Ainsley decries Ivy League elitist Democrats. Sam points that not only is Bartlet's alma mater (Notre Dame) not part of the Ivy League, but that Ainsley herself graduated from none other than Harvard Law.

Added DiffLines:
* NoSocialSkills: In her early appearances particularly, she often gives off the impression of someone who is very awkward and not very good at communicating with other people, which appears to have something to do with her past in the CIA and the secretive nature of her work there. She gets better as the series goes on.
