President Tom Beck (Morgan Freeman) in 'Deep Impact' Leadership style: Stoic determination Pivotal moment: Witnessing the large-scale destruction of the United States after a comet-strike and still managing to show up at the office, despite most of Washington being destroyed. Inspirational quote: "Cities fall, but they are rebuilt. Heroes die, but they are remembered." Lesson learned: A soothing, baritone voice can make any crisis, no matter how unimaginable, seem manageable.
