HER CAMPAIGN -- ON ABC�S �COMMANDER IN CHIEF�
�Little Shop of Horace� � Mac weighs her options on how to deal with a situation in Africa when she learns genocide is taking place in a country there, and it becomes clear there are no easy solutions.

At the same time, Rod makes a scheduled appearance at a joint U.S.-Cuban children�s gymnastics convention, where a freak accident sparks an international situation, and Horace asks Caitlin�s friend, Stacey, for help with his homework -- but the two end up doing more than just studying -- on �Commander In Chief,� TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 21 (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.
