    Favorite Fictional President

    Okay I thought it would be nice to do a little comparison and take a break from all the partisanship and discuss our favorite fictional presidents from TV and Movies. So whats your favorite fictional president and why?

    You first. BTW, where's the poll?
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    Yeah I started it then screwed it up. Am I able to edit it still? I was trying to decide who to put on there as everyone would be different. I like David Palmer from 24 He was measured, cool under pressure but he really carried the series. But second in that series would be Logan he was very crafty and sly. Maybe the Dead Zone president as well but lately I've been watching the West Wing and like Bartlet.

    Re: Favorite Fictional President

    I don't know of any fictional presidents.
    Do you mean in tv shows, or movies, or in books?
    For some reason, I can't even think of one.
    Maybe if you had a poll or a list of options, that might jar my memory.

    Off the top of my head:

    Jed Bartlett (Martin Sheen) in The West Wing
    David Palmer (Dennis Haysbert) in 24
    Dave (Kevin Kline) in Dave
    Merkin Muffley (Peter Sellers) in Dr. Strangelove
    Jeff Bridges in The Contender
    Morgan Freeman in Deep Impact

    I'm sure there are lots more.

    Just because he kicked arse. The movie sucked, however.
    "All mankind is of one author, and is one volume; when one man dies, one chapter is not torn out of the book, but translated into a better language...No man is an island, entire of itself...any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind; and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee." - John Donne
