FILM: Ford For President

With the economy in the shitter, and the possibility of a big fat loser in the White House, people went out to vote for something they actually care about...fictional Movie Presidents. Maybe because of the recent success of Indy 4, or maybe just because Air Force One was a kickass movie, Harrison Ford easily won the contest with 25% of the vote. His no-nonsense approach to terrorism and his all-around likeability appealed to the voters, whereas Morgan Freeman's Obama-like skintone managed to grab him 16% to finish second. Below is the list (and a link to them being awesome as Commander-in-Chief, if possible)

The top 10 movie presidents who Americans would vote into office in real life according to the poll are;

1. Harrison Ford - "Air Force One" (1997)

"Get off my plane."

2. Morgan Freeman - "Deep Impact" (1998)

"What would happen if Hooper filled the tanks with too much air?"

3. Michael Douglas - "The American President (1995)

"So I'm gonna get the guns."

4. Bill Pullman - "Independence Day" (1996)

"Mankind...that word should have no meaning for all of us today..."

5. Kevin Kline - "Dave" (1993)

"I don't want to tell some 8 year kid that he has to sleep in the street, so we can feel better about our car."

6. Dennis Quaid - "American Dreamz" (2006)

7. Bruce Greenwood - "National Treasure: Book of Secrets" (2003).

8. James Cromwell - "The Sum of All Fears (2002).
"Get those people out of the stadium!!!"

9. Jack Nicholson - "Mars Attacks" (1996)

"Can't we all just get along?"

10. Jeff Bridges - "The Contender" (2000).

"But ladies and gentlemen of this Congress...you have brought blood and shame under this great dome."
