    I obviously have not seen those movies with Prez. portrayals. Why couldn’t you have chosen The American President with Michael Douglas or Dave with Kevin Kline?! Then there’s prez. related ones like Guarding Tess with Shirley MacLaine and In The Line of Fire with Clint Eastwood. Oh – I could go on and on – but it won’t change the fact that I haven’t watched #1, #4 or #7 :0(
