Oh, neat list. I think Id have to vote for Morgan Freeman, President Beck. I've been a fan of his since the Electric Company days...

Mittens: That's one movie on this list I've not seen yet. No idea how I missed it.

There aren't any women in your list. I want a woman president.

Anita: Sorry, I couldn't find/think of any female movie presidents. The closest I come is Glenn Close, who played the VP in Air Force One.

The only one I've seen is Independence Day, and I don't remember the president at all. Actually, I barely remember the movie.

Martin Sheen or Morgan Freeman, who have both played presidents.
