Fiction Meets Reality

July 3, 2008

Dennis Haysbert says he thinks people seeing him as President Palmer on the series “24” will make it easier for Obama to be seen as the real Presider of the US.

In a story reported by the AP, Haysbert says: “If anything, my portrayal of David Palmer, I think, may have helped open the eyes of the American people,” said the actor, who has contributed $2,300 to the Illinois Democrat’s presidential campaign.”

On TV, President Palmer made tough decisions. He also had a tough-minded, well-educated wife, who ended up as a traitor to the nation.

If Obama actually gets elected, et’s hope that part of the fiction isn’t played out in reality.
