The President of the United States is the lead of the Executive Branch of the American Government. He is considered the leader of the United States.
In 2009, General Jake Moby noted sadly that President Barack Obama was either ignorant of Dragonstorm and their wrongdoings, or was part of the plot. Aisha Tennes mused that if he was involved, he's obviously not the change she voted for. (Survival of the Fittest)
While trapped in the anti-matter universe, the surviving away team members jokingly held an election to pass the time, since from what they could tell everyone else in America was dead. James Zanasiu won the election, with Rudyard Shelton as his chosen Vice President because "Zachary would hate such a worthless job." (Card of Ten) In actuality, there was a fully-functioning America outside the quarantine zone, so this election was not official. (Ground One)
In real lifeEdit
As of 2013, the president of the United States is still Barack Obama.
