In the first promo featuring footage from Scandal's second season, Olivia is back offering her valuable two cents for the president through an unlikely source: Jeff Perry's duplicitous chief of staff, Cyrus.

Apparently the president's luxury vacation on a yacht -- with a crew of 14 no less and a huge security team including the Coast Guard not far behind -- doesn't sit so well with Olivia considering the economy is in a freefall.
