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.
