That is why we at Mad Bracket Status (the finest pop culture bracket purveyors in all the land) have chose to take this time to look back at some of popular cultures most interesting Presidents. Some have been rough and tumble action heroes. Some have been kind and thoughtful statesmen. Some have piloted giant robots. In fact, four out of the 16 we chose have piloted a giant robot. That's one fourth. What?! Either way, somewhere among the bracket lies the winner who will be named THE Fictional President.
Benjamin Asher (Olympus Has Fallen) vs Michael Wilson (Metal Wolf Chaos)
Jed Bartlett (The West Wing) vs Thomas Whitmore (Independence Day)
Tom Beck (Deep Impact) vs Francis Underwood (House of Cards)
Lord Business (The Lego Movie) vs James Sawyer (White House Down)
Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho (Idiocracy) vs David Palmer (24)
Matthew Ellis (Iron Man 3) vs Nixon's Head (Futurama)
Mays Gilliam (Head of State) vs Selena Meyer (Veep)
Lex Luthor (DC Comics) vs James Marshall (Air Force One)
So, elephant in the room: either Jed Bartlett or Thomas Whitmore will be eliminated in the first round. They were both heavy favorites for the overall winner. That's just the way the bracket crumbles.
