Politics is a tricky game, and while some play nice, others don't always. 

One thing we can all agree on? Any one of these TV politicians may actually be a great choice for our next President. 

See if your favorite person in power made our list!

1. Councilwoman Leslie Knope, Parks and Recreation

Councilwoman Leslie Knope, Parks and Recreation
Leslie might usher in a new era for the United States, one where parks are at the top of everyone’s list of concerns. More parks could pop up everywhere, each one with a Lil’ Sebastian fountain. Waffles would become our national food and Galentine’s Day would be a National Holiday. Scratch that, Ann Perkins’ birthday would be the National Holiday.

2. President Jed Bartlet, The West Wing

President Jed Bartlet, The West Wing
Do we even need a reason to justify this choice? Jed Bartlet was a man of integrity and strength. He won a Nobel Prize. He’s firm in what he stands for and incredibly likeable. His speeches are inspiring. Can we all just agree to write him in on our ballots this November?

3. President Selina Meyer, Veep

President Selina Meyer, Veep
Say what you will about her incompetence, but Selina Meyer has a lot of heart. She tries harder than anyone…and usually fails, because let’s face it, she’s kind of a disaster. But surely she’d keep things controversial and keep us guessing as our President!

4. President David Palmer, 24

Okay, this one's easy. Jack Bauer's looking out for him. He's pretty freaking amazing. He's decisive, makes tough calls without hesitation, and the best part? He might be able to get the country some kind of deal with All State Insurance. (Okay, maybe not that last part. But endorsements do go a long way!)

5. Town Selectman Taylor Doose, Gilmore Girls

Every lawn in America would be the exact same length if Taylor Doose was left in charge! What else could we expect from this Stars Hollow government vet? A new nationwide-celebration every week, an ice cream shoppe in every town, and triple the amount of historical re-enactments everywhere.

6. President Frank Underwood, House of Cards

President Frank Underwood, House of Cards
Frank Underwood knows all about getting power. After being snubbed, he worked his way up the political ladder, and by worked we definitely mean manipulated, and is currently the President. Maybe we need a guy like him in charge of things.
