R. Lee Ermey
If we can't all just get along by judicious use of social media, maybe former Marine Corps drill instructor "Gunny" R. Lee Ermey could whip us in shape. Americans (many of us are quite out of shape as it is) could benefit from Sarge's no-nonsense approach to getting things done. Besides, he'd scare the heck out of most politicians now in Washington.

Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction and sometimes fiction is more comforting than truth. Josiah Bartlett (the TV character, not the actual Declaration signatory) served as fictional President of the United States for seven years. While he was decidedly liberal, he was also tough and fair -- and sure seemed a lot more like what a President should be than what we're going to have to choose from in November.

Well, since we just had Martin Sheen (who embodied Jed Bartlett) as our previous pick, it's only fair to add Charlie Sheen to our presidential rogue's gallery. While he might not make the best President, the partying Charlie Sheen would certainly be able to build rapport with the Secret Service.
Yes. I went there. And yes, this whole thing was a build-up for a Secret Service gag. Guilty as charged.
