Which big or small screen president do you wish we had in the Oval Office? As in fictional tv/movie character. Which one would make the best president?
My vote would be the Kevin Kline portrayal in Dave.
I’m surprised that no one has yet answered the question under your parameters but I’d take the president from Dr Strangelove, because compared to the one we have now he really knew how to collude and conspire with Russia for noble reasons, without making us look like such pansies.
I think the most qualified people don't want to be POTUS. There are not a lot of Presidents who have been well known prior to their entry as a candidate for the office. Trump and Reagan are the only two who were in the public eye prior to running for office.
