GenevaHi everyone, Here's a few oddball choices for fictional TV Presidential Portrayals: **DAG, a 2000-2001 comedy on NBC about a secret service agent (David Alan Grier) who is assigned to protect the First Lady (played by Delta Burke). Occasionally the President would make an appearance. **The Secret Life of Desmond Pfeiffer, UPN from 1998. A "wacky" (and I assume crass, although I never saw the show) portrayal of Abraham Lincoln. **Super President: an animated cartoon from 1967 (which I remember watching as a kid, actually). Super President is about a super-powered President who fights crime, believe it or not. You can read more about it at: http://www.alphalink.com.au/~roglen/super_president.htm Or check out titles of individual episodes at The Big Cartoon Database: http://www.bcdb.com/ Hope this helps!
