I'm a sucker for a patriotic movie (see my review for Argo). So I've been inspired by the current election (which thankfully ends in 2 weeks!) to explore some politicians in pop culture. This is a fairly cursory list, but go with it. They're not necessarily real, nor held a real office, but they're some of my favorites.
Honorable Mentions: Harvey Milk (Sean Penn), Board of Supervisors Milk, Senator Lillian DeHaven (Anne Bancroft) G.I. Jane, President Beck (Morgan Freeman) Deep Impact.
