11 fictional US presidents we’d like to vote for

From Jed Bartlet to David Palmer to Richard Nixon’s head. Who would you pick?

LET’S SUSPEND REALITY for a few moments and pretend we’re all in America, we all have a vote, and all of these fictional presidents are on the ballot.

Who would you pick?

1. Independence Day: President Thomas Whitmore

That speech. Will anything ever beat that speech? “WE WILL NOT GO QUIETLY INTO THE NIGHT”…


2. 24: President David Palmer

Denis Haysbert was so convincing as President Palmer in 24 that a contributor on CNN got him mixed up with President Obama…

3. Commander in Chief: President Mackenzie Allen

Geena Davis. Hell yeah we’d vote for her!


4. The American President: President Andrew Shephard

Michael Douglas pulled at our heart strings as the widowed father-of-one who gets to go out on dates as well as run the country (with bonus Martin Sheen appearance)…


5. The West Wing: President Josiah Bartlet

Arguably the best fictional president ever, from the way he puts on his coat to this epic smackdown:


6. The West Wing: President Glen Allen Walken

When a crisis erupts in The White House during season 4, the most powerful Republican in the land steps in to take President Jed Bartlet’s place temoporarily. Who better for the job than John Goodman?…


7. Futurama: President Nixon’s Head

The President of Earth is at the same time pure evil and worthy of respect. Also, he is a head in a jar…


8. Battlestar Galactica: President Laura Roslin

President Roslin (played by Mary McDonnell) battled cancer while serving as the president of the Twelve Colonies. Hero…

9. Air Force One: President James Marshall

Nobody gets on Harrison Ford’s plane and gets away with it. This movie features some of the cheesiest lines ever committed to film…


10. The Simpsons: President Arnold Schwarzenegger

He was elected to lead, not to read…


11.  Dave: President Bill Mitchell/Dave Kovic

When the president suffers a stroke while having it away with an intern, lookalike Dave Kovic (Kevin Kline) steps in AND steals the First Lady…


Will Ferrell and Neil Diamond for Obama, Chuck Norris for Romney>
