15 Movie Presidents We Wish Were Real 

Jack Lemmon as President Russell P. Kramer, James Garner as President Matt Douglas and Dan Aykroyd (not pictured) as President William Haney in My Fellow Americans (1996)

Ex-presidents played by Lemmon and Garner unite against President William Haney, played by Akroyd. Wacky double-crossing ensues throughout much of the movie's hour and 40 minutes, and if any of these characters were our actual president, we'd have a lifetime's worth of snarky political blog posts to read.

Here are fifteen fake presidents we wish were real, even if only for a First 100 Days.
