In the October episode, Albright lends fictional Sec of State Elizabeth McCord (Téa Leoni) a hand in navigating some very choppy White House political waves. The second season of Madam Secretary debuts on October 4. Albright was Secretary of State during Bill Clinton’s second term from 1997 to 2001.
