President Charles Logan (Gregory Itzin) on '24'
Leadership style: Dithering and weak, though that was later revealed to be a calculated front to avoid suspicion of involvement in a traitorous conspiracy.
Pivotal moment: Striking his wife, Martha (Jean Smart), and admitting his complicity in the assassination of a previous president, all while being secretly recorded.
Inspirational quote: "Martha, do you realize how traumatic this would be for the country if people were to find out?"
Lesson learned: Never underestimate the person in the Oval Office, no matter how dumb or ineffectual he or she may appear to be on the surface.
