Seems I forgot an important black president…

Don’t forget about the black president from “Idiocracy.” He was awesome.

I definitely can’t argue with your selection of Morgan Freeman as one of the greatest black presidents of all time, but I have to differ with your second choice. Though he appeared strong, I believe President Palmer was an overrated leader. It’s widely known that most of the critical decisions were made by his Chief of Staff Mike Novick, who could be the most underrated and under-utilized characters of all time. Novick was a steady calm in the rocky seas of the Palmer administration. I would also go as far to say that Dennis Haysbert doesn’t come close to the performance of Gregory Itzin as President Logan. Just look at how Chuck came back in Season 6 to help out Jack in the Russian consulate before being tragically stabbed by Martha. Sadly, much like Richard Nixon, President Logan will always be remembered for a couple of minor federal crimes.

So who do I think is the greatest black president ever? This is easy … “Idiocracy’s” Terry Crews as President Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho. While the rest of his cabinet sounded like Ron Paul on crack, the former porn star and wrestler was a voice of reason, and helped his country stand up to the evil Brawndo.

Just my two cents.
