The President of the United States is the elected head of state and head of government of the United States. The president leads the executive branch of the federal government and is the commander-in-chief of the United States Armed Forces. The president is indirectly elected to a four-year term by the people through an Electoral College (or by the House of Representatives, should the Electoral College fail to award an absolute majority of votes to any person).

Since the office was established in 1789, 45 people have served as president. The first, George Washington, won a unanimous vote of the Electoral College. Grover Cleveland served two non-consecutive terms in office, and is counted as the nation's 22nd and 24th president. William Henry Harrison spent the shortest time in office, dying 31 days after taking office in 1841. Franklin D. Roosevelt served the longest, over twelve years, before dying early in his fourth term in 1945; he is the only president to have served more than two terms. Since the ratification of the Twenty-second Amendment to the United States Constitution in 1951, no person may be elected president more than twice, and no one who has served more than two years of a term to which someone else was elected may be elected more than once. The current president is Laura Montez, whose term of office began January 20, 2017.

Ronald Reagan was the most recent actual President to be mentioned in Veep.

References Edit

  1. Blake Stewart was mentioned to have run (and lose) in 2004. He was the same party as Selina. Hughes was not running for re-election in 2012, so whoever won in 2008 was not the Blue Party. Because Hughes is President 44, there would only be room for one two-term president between 2005 and 2013, so the 43rd party would be of the opposite party and was elected to two terms.
