After four years of Obama and Biden, cartoon characters such as the "mouse" and "duck" could also qualify.

You guys are slow..... This isn't about the actors. This is about the characters they are playing on their television shows. My goodness people!

Give me a break. Most of the people in show business are shallow and do not have a clue as to how the real world works. These folks in show business are not of the caliber of those who served in world war two. Most of the folks in show business have never served our country in the military. When I watch a show it is for entertainment, knowing the actors are doing what most all do. Pretending to be someone they are not. Find me an actor or an entertainer that served in the military and does not bash our military. Well then you might get a few votes for the world of make believe.

|TV Characters Who Should Run for President|
These players have what it takes to be our commander in chief
By Michaela Sinclair
As America ramps up for the upcoming election and all eyes are on Mitt Romney and Barack Obama, there is still undoubted discontent among Republicans, Democrats, Tea Partyers, Libertarians and Independents on either presidential candidate. With the country divided on issues such as gay rights, universal health care, women's reproductive rights and foreign policy, we need a strong leader more than ever.
While we brace ourselves for the expected political debates, mudslinging and heavy campaigning over the next several weeks, we speculate on which television characters would make viable presidential candidates. Whether they have the right look, charisma, political background or connections, these characters would have our vote!
Jack Donaghy, "30 Rock"
Born John Francis Donaghy, Jack Donaghy (Alec Baldwin) put himself through Princeton University, where he played football and baseball and was a member of a secret society and Michelle Obama's classmate. After graduating from Harvard Business School, he interned for Sen. Ted Kennedy before rising in the ranks at General Electric to become its vice president of East Coast Television and Microwave Oven Programming and then head of NBC. Well-dressed and part of the "old boys club," Jack is manipulative, business-savvy and a staunch capitalist. This Ronald Reagan idolizer would certainly get the Republican vote.
The third presidential debate airs Monday, Oct. 22, at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT on major networks and cable news channels.
