Synopsis >

Jeannie learns that Tony doesn't trust any political candidate and decides to run Tony himself for governor. Finding the living room filled with Tony's campaign posters, Dr. Bellows declares he can't be both a politician and an astronaut. Tony tries to explain it as a yoke and rips the posters off the wall, but others keep appearing. To prove to Roger that Tony could be elected, Jeannie blinks up a peep show machine showing crowds of enthusiastic voters. Seeing himself as Tony's assistant, controlling millions, Roger tries to persuade Tony to run. Tony refuses, despite floods of campaign contributions. Dr. Bellows looks into the machine, but sees only a belly dancer. To get rid of Jeannie until after the election, Tony sends her to Baghdad to campaign for him. Finally seeing through the ruse, Jeannie returns and redoubles her efforts. Dr. Bellows rushes for Gen. Peterson. In the machine, Tony views himself as a bridegroom. However, when Jeannie sees the bride - a sultry brunette - she blinks away the whole thing. Hoping to shock Gen. Peterson, Dr. Bellows tells him of the belly dancer. Again, Jeannie blinks and there is only a space craft launching. Determined to have a talk with Dr. Bellows, Gen. Peterson apologizes to Tony.
