TV Characters Who Should Run for President

Slide 1 of 12

These players have what it takes to be our commander in chiefBy Michaela SinclairSpecial to MSN TVAs America ramps up for the upcoming election and all eyes are on Mitt Romney and Barack Obama, there is still undoubted discontent among Republicans, Democrats, Tea Partyers, Libertarians and Independents on either presidential candidate. With the country divided on issues such as gay rights, universal health care, women's reproductive rights and foreign policy, we need a strong leader more than ever.While we brace ourselves for the expected political debates, mudslinging and heavy campaigning over the next several weeks, we speculate on which television characters would make viable presidential candidates. Whether they have the right look, charisma, political background or connections, these characters would have our vote!Jack Donaghy, "30 Rock"Born John Francis Donaghy, Jack Donaghy (Alec Baldwin) put himself through Princeton University, where he played football and baseball and was a member of a secret society and Michelle Obama's classmate. After graduating from Harvard Business School, he interned for Sen. Ted Kennedy before rising in the ranks at General Electric to become its vice president of East Coast Television and Microwave Oven Programming and then head of NBC. Well-dressed and part of the "old boys club," Jack is manipulative, business-savvy and a staunch capitalist. This Ronald Reagan idolizer would certainly get the Republican vote.Bing: More on Alec Baldwin | More on '30 Rock'The third presidential debate airs Monday, Oct. 22, at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT on major networks and cable news channels.What small-screen character would you vote into office? Tell us on our Facebook page.(NBC)
