Eleanor Shaw:
I will do whatever is necessary to protect America from anyone who opposes her. I can't... am I the only person in this room who's been reading these NSA reports?
Congressman Healy:
I've read them.
Eleanor Shaw:
All right, then. You know... you know we are on the brink of another cataclysm, probably nuclear, on our own soil.
Congresswoman Becket:
Oh, Ellie, that's a bit extreme.
Eleanor Shaw:
And it's not from random terrorists, but from covert alliances of disaffected nations who've all been made bold by this kind of Jordan one-worlder who believes that human beings are essentially good and that our powers are somehow, I don't know, shameful or evil and never to be used. Make no mistake. The American people are terrified. They know something's coming. They can feel it. And we can either shovel them the same old shit and call it sugar or we can arm them. We can arm them with a young, vibrant Vice President. We can give them heat, energy! Give them a war hero with heart, forged by enemy fire in the desert in the dark when American lives hung on the balance!

from anyone who opposes her.
I can't...
Am I the only person in this room
who's been reading
these NSA reports?
- I've read them.
- All right, then you know,
you know we are on the brink
of another cataclysm,
probably nuclear, on our own soil.
Oh, Ellie, that's a bit extreme.
ELLIE:
And it's not from random terrorists,
but from covert alliances
of disaffected nations
who have all been made bold
by this kind of Jordan one-worlder
who believes that human beings
are essentially good
and that our power is somehow,
I don't know,
shameful or evil or never to be used.
Make no mistake,
the American people are terrified.
They know something's coming.
They can feel it.
And we can either shovel them
the same old shit and call it sugar
or we can arm them.
We can arm them with a young,
vibrant vice president.
We can give them heat, energy,
give them a war hero with heart,
forged by enemy fire
in the desert in the dark,
when American lives
hung in the balance.
Give us a few minutes.
Thank you.
Mr. Secretary,
thank you for your time.
- Thank you.
ELLIE: Really appreciate it.
- Leona, good evening.
- Thank you, Ellie.
Well, they're gonna have to make
their own decisions.
I am proud...

... to offer into nomination
the name of the next vice president
of these United States:
Raymond Shaw!
TV NEWSCASTER 1: A remarkable
development. Twenty-four hours ago,
New York Congressman
Raymond Prentiss Shaw
wasn't even being mentioned
as a possible candidate
for the vice presidential nomination
four years from now,
much less this current convention.
Some incredible news
from the convention floor tonight.
Like a long shot
catching the favorite
on the back stretch
of the Kentucky Derby,
Raymond Shaw has overtaken
Senator Thomas Jordan
to gain the vice presidential
nomination.
TV NEWSCASTER 2:
Raymond Shaw bears the lineage
of the fabled
Prentiss family dynasty.
Grandson of legendary industrialist
and diplomat Tyler Prentiss,
son of controversial
Senator Eleanor Prentiss Shaw,
who took over the seat
vacated by her husband,
the esteemed John Shaw,
when he died tragically
over 20 years ago.
For many, Raymond Prentiss Shaw
is an enigma.
The millionaire
Harvard honors student
who enlisted in the infantry,
refusing the officer's commission
to which he was entitled.
Media-shy and reclusive,
Raymond Shaw's life
was forever changed
on the killing fields of Kuwait,
where he won the Congressional
Medal of Honor for combat bravery.
Two members of Sergeant Shaw's
famed "Lost Patrol,"
PFC Edward Ingram
and PFC Robert Baker III,
were killed.
Their guide, a civilian contractor,
disappeared in the ambush.
