    How come no one ever stops for a bite to eat or needs to spend a penny? :D

    Sorry...real question

    Mike Novak is David Palmer's right hand man in Season 1 and has been for x number of years previous to that. In season 2 he is chief of staff for David Palmer.

    In season 4 & 5 he is right hand man to the president that belongs to the political party in opposition to David Palmer in season 3.

    Did I miss an explanation to his apparent change in political loyalties at some stage?

    yep Palmer's a Democrat - he fires Novick as a result of his betrayal in S2
    hires his brother Wayne as his COS for S3...

    Next thing we know is Novick's COS for VP Logan a Republican..

    Is known to happen with US administrations, when Cabinet member and political chiefs of staff may not necessarily fully paid up party members or even Senators or Congressmen/women for that matter

    Has also happened with The West Wing, as Bartlett's COS Leo was a Republican but then joined Bartlett as a Democrat (as his backstory goes)
