    Is there really any doubt? Josiah Bartlett all the way! Anyone who can deliver Sorkin speeches with such passion and panache has to win.

  3. Pat D. says:

    The character was despicable and Greg Itzin was utterly brilliant in his portrayal of Charles Logan. Logan dripped slime with just about every scene he was in.

  4. Ana says:

    Totally a toss up between David Palmer and Allison Taylor. Loved both of them. They would be my fantasy presidential ticket.

  5. Jane says:

    Bartlett for America, forever!

  6. Kelly says:

    Jed Bartlett but Laura Roslin almost made me change my mind. I loved Bartlett first so I’m sticking with him.
