They became closer than ever as she battled cancer, but with it in remission, you knew it was just a matter of time until Kitty and Robert were at odds over politics again.
On Sunday's all-new Brothers & Sisters, Robert makes a startling announcement - or maybe not startling, in light of what's been going on: He is not seeking reelection.
