15. President James Sawyer (White House Down)

President James Sawyer is an outside when it comes to the Beltway. He wants to make the country and the world a better place. He does it by doing what he says he’s going to do even if it’s not politically expedient. This was seen when he tried to push his World Wide Peace Treaty. There is lots of money, and jobs in wars and some didn’t want it to end. Many parallels have been made of his Presidency to that of President Obama but prefer Abraham Lincon. President Sawyer almost became Lincon when a group of mercenaries took over the White House. His quick thinking and help from a Capitol Policeman John Cale they were able to save the world from a nuclear attack and violation of the Peace Treaty Swayer enacted. Not to mention they stopped a coup de tat of the United States government.

President Swayer is married with one child. He is trying to quit smoking with good results. It’s a nasty habit. He also has an affinity for Air Jordans sneakers. He could use them when the mercenaries were chasing him down.

People relate to President Sawyer’s “cool as the other side of the pillow” attitude. The country is war weary, and he gets that. It’s time to work with other nations for peace. Sometimes force is not necessary. This is why President Sawyer makes our list.
