Who is your favorite TV president?
So my question to you, dear reader, is who is your favorite TV president?
Francis Underwood and his wife might split his vote.
President Laura Roslin on BATTLESTAR GALACTICA has to deal with killer robots but that’s easier than senate subcommittees.
I’m guessing David Palmer from 24 gets a lot of votes. He seems like a strong compassionate leader and you can call him if someone dents your car at Costco.
Ol’ Fitz Grant from SCANDAL should fare better with women and Ashley Madison subscribers.
Mackenzie Allen from COMMANDER IN CHIEF will do better with men (older men).
There are probably a few I left out. There was a different president every year on 24. And after the pilot I stopped watching MADAM SECRETARY so I have no idea who Tea Leoni is dealing with there. Write-in votes are acceptable. Also, there are way too many movie presidents to throw in this mix so I’ll just confine the discussion to TV.
Usually when I post anything even remotely political it results in heated debates. Let’s see how ugly the discussion gets and how personal the attacks are when the fighting is over Jed Bartlet vs. Frank Underwood.
