Who's the best movie president of all time?
Daniel Day Lewis throws his stovepipe hat into the ring this month when Steven Spielberg's much anticipated "Lincoln" opens Nov. 9. Lewis' poetic portrayal of the 16th president is the stuff Oscar nominations are made of, and it helps that he all but transformed into Lincoln by never stepping out of character during months of filming.
But when it comes to trumping commanders-in-chief of films past, he's up against some tough competition. Before heading to the polls, relive some of the best movie presidents ever, and tell us who you think is No. 1?
Michael Douglas as President Andrew Shepherd in 'An American President'
Never has there been a more desirable man in the movie White House than Andrew Shepherd.
John Travolta as Jack Stanton (aka President No. 42) in 'Primary Colors'
He loves doughnuts, he makes a great speech, he has a very smart wife, he has a problem keeping his hands off other women, he's governor of a Southern state, and he's running for president.
Kevin Kline as President Bill Mitchell in 'Dave'
It's hard to imagine a modest, well-meaning mensch like Dave Kovic making it to the White House.
