I've often said the only liberal president I've liked was Jed Bartlett, from the NBC drama "The West Wing." In fact, I had the chance to tell "President Bartlett" exactly that last year.
Martin Sheen, the actor who played the President, happens to be very liberal himself. We had a nice discussion about politics and Notre Dame football. Disagree with him on 99% of his politics, but still like him as an actor. Alabama went on to defeat Notre Dame in the BCS Championship Game a few weeks later, too. Roll Tide!
