Well, it’s been a long road to get here but we’ve finally reached the final round of our tournament to choose the best fictional President from TV and film. Of course, both of your options are from TV…never mind that! Clearly Jed Bartlet and Laura Roslin are the best two choices because that’s what the voters have decided! That’s how democracy works right?
Camacho made quite a run to make it to the Final Four, and Thomas Whitmore certainly got votes reminding us of our Independence Day, but is anyone surprised that it comes down to Bartlet v. Roslin? Probably only people who haven’t seen The West Wing and/or Battlestar Galactica.
The real 2020 election is only days away at this point. Most of us are varying degrees of anxious. So let’s forget about that for a moment and debate what really matters: Bartlet or Roslin?
Who would you trust to answer the phone at three in the morning? Both of them? Erm…Who would you like to have a beer with? Both of them again? Damn, this one is going to be tough.
Cast your vote and lobby your friends! Lobby people who are not your friends! Poke people you don’t like and bother them to vote!
Which fictional President will emerge with the crown? (I’m being told Presidents don’t get crowns, but that’s OK, I’ve decided our fictional President does.)
Voting in this poll closes on Sunday November 1st at 10pm EST
