Yep. The election's tonight. Besides new episodes of 90210, Privileged, Lincoln Heights and The Shield...all you can do is watch the election coverage and wait.

So...while we're waiting to learn the next actual US President, lets discuss some fictional ones:

Common TV Favorites:

David Palmer - 24

Laura Roslin - Battlestar Galactica

Josiah Bartlett - The West Wing

Mackenzie Allen (Geena Davis) - Commander in Chief

Common Movie Favorites:

Andrew Shepherd (Michael Douglas) - The American President

James Marshall (Harrison Ford) - Air Force One

Bill Mitchell/Dave Kovic (Kevin Kline) - Dave

Jackson Evans (Jeff Bridges) - The Contender

James Dale (Jack Nicholson) - Mars Attacks!

Thomas Whitmore (Bill Pullman) - Independence Day

Tom Beck (Morgan Freeman) - Deep Impact

So...missing any good ones? Which fictional president is your favorite and why? Personally, I was always a sucker for Michael Douglas in The American President...
