While everyone is waiting to see who wins the vote for President of the United States, we want to figure out who the best fake president is. It's probably of equal importance.
The official voting period has ended. See the results below.
The Best Fictional President
15. Andrew Shepard, The American President
Yeah yeah yeah, the President's supposed to run the country and stuff. But all we really want is an Andrew Shepard type POTUS who we can watch fall in looooooooooove.
14. President Nixon, Watchmen
Alan Moore's graphic novel and Zack Snyder's movie adaptation gave us a fictional Nixon to kick around again, who serves five terms as President and uses The Comedian to assassinate political opponents. Fake Tricky Dick even has a superpower, namely a bottomless capacity for assholery.
13. Tim Robbins, Austin Powers
Dr. Evil, meet the incredibly silly U.S. President you're up against. Incredibly silly U.S. President, meet Dr. Evil. Just want to thank you both for coming together to make government, diplomacy, and global terrorist threats so much FUN!
12. James Dale, Mars Attacks
Two reasons he's one of our greatest made-up Presidents. Reason #1: he died at the hands (really a single freaky hand) of those evil Martian invaders. Reason #2: he's pretty much just President Jack Nicholson. What could be better than that?
11. David Palmer, 24
David Palmer was such a badass President that even Jack Bauer respected him. And Jack Bauer's standards are so high, he almost doesn't even respect himself.
