QotD: Bartlet

Question: Would you rather vote for Jed Bartlet (let's pretend it's the re-election year, after the MS thing, and not the first go-round) or John Kerry for the Democratic nominee?

My Answer: Bartlet. Easily. I may not agree with all or even most of his stances on things (in, yes, a fictional TV show), but at least he's got conviction and a will to do things. But really, how many vice presidents can that guy go through? Neither would get my vote in the general election, though.

You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on your blog.

  1. Bartlet. Charisma, a firm stance on his issues, and I actually feel as if I could like the guy are keys to a good candidate. How many of those qualities does Kerry have? 0.

  2. Definitely, Jed Bartlett. Although I think it's kind of sad that the the best presidents are the fictional ones. =Sigh=

  3. Forget that liberal wimp Bartlett. My vote would go to David Palmer of "24". Now there's a guy with morals and conviction, but willing to admit he can be wrong, and hires the best people. If only our real-life choices can be as good as what Hollywood portrays.

  4. I can't remember exactly when it was, but several months ago before primary season I saw a car on the freeway with a "Bartlet for America" bumper sticker.

    And yeah, he'd get my vote too.
