Remember good presidents?

Remember halfway decent presidents?

It's strange to think we might not know what the next four years of our futures hold (at the time of writing), but fortunately, fiction can still give us mentally stable, reliable, honorable, trustworthy, hard-working, stable, passionate, respectful, (did we mention stable?) presidents for us to enjoy.


Reddit user, u/CreativePhilosopher, wanted to know who you long for when they asked:

Hands down President Bartlet from the west wing. He's an actual PhD economist who's also a charming genius with great people skills, and shows respect and humility to everyone regardless of political affiliation or how much they agree with him. he was designed to be sort of the ideal american president.
