Before Barack Obama

Sen. Laine Hanson (Joan Allen), flanked by her communications director Lewis Hollis (Mike Binder), refuses to answer questions about her personal life during confirmation hearings to determine if she will be the next vice president of the United States in the 2000 film "The Contender." Allen earned an Oscar nomination for the role.
