Haha! An alcoholic president would be fun. I vote Tigh/Roslin.

LOL, watching BSG right now.


You couldn't find a shot of Tigh with both eyes?


Also, we already have an alcoholic president. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UdeCl1ZDYwo

He looks a lot like Da Ladeez Man to me!

I kinda liked that particular pose.

Apparently , I'm not alone in this line of thought.

Let's play the game of "who are they describing?"


Handsome yet somewhat effete, despite his elitism he is equally comfortable with activism or intellectualism. He preaches a gospel of brotherhood and easy answers, yet is suspected by more conservative elements of siding with the enemy in part because of his dubious religious affiliation which includes a cult of personality. He is adept at propounding a larger Utopian vision in speeches and in book form, yet to many lacks credibility because his own loyalties appear unclear and his answers are a little too pat to believe. This candidate naturally rouses suspicion because he has become so adept at reinventing himself in different roles that no one is sure exactly who he is anymore.





With a background as a pilot and a career boosted by his father's nepotism and a shadowy adviser, this candidate may not be smart but he is handsome and glib. Despite a substance abuse problem in the background and resentment toward his father, his father has groomed him as a natural leader. Yet his confident and easy manner may hide poor planning and difficulty anticipating and reacting to unpredictable events. While at first glance he may appear to be a militarist, he is actually a compromiser with natural people skills.





Having jumped from an incidental position on the periphery of government to holding major political power, this candidate has faced the challenge of being a woman fighting for power in wartime and may appear outwardly cold and ruthless. The longer the struggle for power goes on, the less she finds herself able to remove the mask of power she wears. The price she pays for that is that while she is able to maintain power, public dislike of her makes her vulnerable to overthrow by Gaius/Obama whose sunny optimism and seeming sincerity is far more acceptable to the public than her methodical effectiveness.





Old and grizzled, this candidate has seen war and has come home only to find that he is now the enemy to many of his own people. Though he once saw things in black and white, he has slowly adopted a more complex worldview that may make him for negotiating the realities of a shifting battlefield where the sides may not be what they seem. However his anger management problem and his tendency to brood may make him an unpredictable leader. His greatest strengths are his dogged loyalty and his acute understanding of his own flaws.





Apparently the Tigh / Roslin campaign has its own website: http://www.tighroslin.com/


Oh, xveganxcowboyx, I don't know which episode you're on, but if you haven't yet seen Crossroads pt. II (the final episode of Season 3) then you probably shouldn't go clicking too many of these links. Some of the Tigh for Prez material contains an allusion that would constitute a massive spoiler.

Um, you put a Hillary pic in instead of Palin. Palin is a potential V-pilf but I think Hillary prefers girls.

Yeah, I plagiarized that last one. The text has to fit the pictures, and if you really think about it, Hillary is a better foil (politically) to Roslin.

Although, I do seem to recall that Rosin stirred up accusations of being a religious zealot with her controversial (and seemingly ultra-conservative) decision in outlawing abortion. And Palin does come from a family of schoolteachers...

It's all good, I've seen seasons 1-4. Just never did watch the mini-series. Got to love Surf The Channel.
