Extra has created a list of Best Fictional TV Presidents and “24″ has a strong presence, nabbing four of the ten spots.
President David Palmer
Who: Dennis Haysbert
Best quote: “Listen to me. All of you. I know you’re not in the same room with me but you can see and hear me plainly enough. Take a good look. Do I seem scared? Am I breaking into a nervous sweat? Am I babbling? At a loss for words? Is my voice shaking? Can any one of you look me in the eye and tell me I’m disabled?”
President Charles Logan
Who: Gregory Itzin
Best quote: “And I tell you something else, Martha. If you blow up like this again I’ll fill you so full of drugs you won’t even remember your own name. And then I will have you shipped off to an asylum where you can spend the rest of your life there if you like. Are we clear?”
President Allison Taylor
Who: Cherry Jones
Best quote: President Allison Taylor: “You resigned from government service and the Senate regards you as having been a renegade agent. How am I supposed to know where your loyalties really lie?” Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland): “With all due respect Madame President, ask around.”
President Wayne Palmer
Who: D.B. Woodside
Best quote: Jack Bauer: “Audrey Raines was willing to give her own life to save mine. I cannot and will not do anything less for her.” President Wayne Palmer: “You’re asking me to sign off on a probable suicide mission!” Jack Bauer: “With all due respect, Mr. President, sixteen hours ago your people were willing to hand me over for dead, and I did not hesitate.” Jack Bauer: “Mr. President, you owe me.”
