Top 25 Fictional DC Resident: #16 James Dale

Name: James Dale
Occupation: (former) President, United States of America
Resides: (former) 1600 Pennsylvania Ave
Status: Deceased

President Dale may not be the most distinguished man to occupy the Oval Office – “Shut up, shut up, SHUT UP” is no way to address your military advisors – but he may well have been the most ambitious. That ambition was tempered somewhat with optimism, however, as he really expected to be able to establish pleasant diplomatic relations with the somewhat monosyllabic visitors from Mars. Sure, he wanted it primarily as a feather in the cap of his Presidency but let’s face it – nobody goes after that job because they’re shy and modest. And, okay, maybe he’s not the most articulate or thoughtful President ever, what with reacting to the incineration of Congress with the statement “I want the people to know that they still have 2 out of 3 branches of the government working for them, and that ain’t bad” but again, that’s some bright-side thinking right there. And how do you argue with “Rest assured that we will soon come out at a very real outcome” as a prognosis?

Although his wife, Marsha, was also a victim of the War of Martian Aggression, he is survived by his daughter Taffy.
