Happy Presidents Day, TV Fanatics!
On this joyous of holidays, we don't just think back to our 9 Favorite Television Presidents in small screen history. We also look ahead.
Which TV characters could easily occupy the Oval Office someday? Who has experience in politics? Who is the best leader? The most inspiring?
Who has perfected the all-important art of wearing a suit at all times?
Click around now, consider the following men and women for Commander-in-Chief and decide: Who would have your vote?
1. Conrad Grayson
Requires little to no on-the-job training. He's run a multi-billion dollar corporation. (Obama had never run anything!) Also, there's never been a man more cut out for Washington. A duplicitous, corrupt, shamelessly ambitious charmer, it's a small wonder he's not president right now in fact.
2. Leroy Jethro Gibbs
Has no tolerance for bureaucracy, double-speak or not getting the job done. Basically, the antidote for all that ails our political system. The only drawback would be his insistence on leading every national defense initiative on the ground and in person.
3. Cyrus Beene
Let's face it: With Fitz shtupping Olivia, he's practically running the country anyway.
4. Elijah Mikaelson
Does anyone look better in a suit?!? And we'd never have to worry about a campaign promise going unfulfilled.
5. Sue Sylvester
She takes no gruff, she wouldn't let the nation be distracted by singing and track suits in the Oval Office? Yes please.
6. Walter White
You may disagree with some of his methods, but he'll get things done. Also, as a former chemistry teacher, he'll offer insight into our failing education system.
7. Daenerys Targaryen
Brutal when she needs to be, sensitive when the moment calls for it. She clearly knows how to get people to follow her lead.
8. Leslie Knope
It's only her dream in life. Leslie could suceed where her hero, Hillary Clinton, has (thus far) failed.
9. Captain Ray Holt
Can a black gay man hold the highest office in the land? Yes, if that same man get get Jake Peralta to focus on his job. Leaders don't come funnier than this.
10. Sterling Archer
He can adjust with the times and has proven adept at both fighting for the law and breaking the law. In other words: he can win over both sides of the aisle.
