Presidents as TV Characters: Special Edition

If the republic had begun fifty years before, would Ben Franklin have been president? He would have been someone. Instead, he's known as the wisest guy, like ever. Every quote you can think of right now is by Ben Franklin. Dude flew a kite in a storm. He was a part of the old boys club, except by the time American had rulers, he was the oldest boy.

He also loved him some womenfolk. He had illegitimate children all over the place. He loved France because the womenfolk let you do more with them. Even though dude was old, he still had game.

Who loves the womenfolk in teevee world but still gets (some) work done? Who would say something like, "When God closes a door, he opens a dress" ?

Damn that Roger Sterling! What with his mistresses, his cushy job, his mistresses, his leaving his wife, and his old boys club, he might as well be Ben Franklin. He has his own witticisms:

"What do women want? Who cares?"

"Being with a client is like being in a marriage. Sometimes you get into it for the wrong reasons, and eventually they hit you in the face."

Oh man. Dude loves his women and his old boys network. And his women. These two would have plenty to talk about.
