My Fellow Americans

Synopsis: Kramer and Douglas, two former presidents from opposite ends of the political spectrum, become reluctant allies when they become the target of a conspirator in President Haney's administration. The two ex-presidents realize they have an enemy within the government and set out to find evidence that will clear their names. The search takes them across the Southern Appalachians; along the way they meet a homeless couple, thwart kidnapers in the parking lot of a fast-food restaurant, and find themselves marching in a gay pride parade.

It has been described as one of

the most vicious presidential races...

...in the history

of American politics...

...and one of the closest.

The Republican nominee

Senator Russell P. Kramer of Ohio...

...is practically dead even

in the polls with is bitter rival...

...democratic Governor

Matt Douglas of Indiana.

To say there is no love lost

between these two candidates...

...is a gross understatement.

Yet to night, in spite of their almost

overwhelming distaste for each other...

...one man will have to

salute the other...

...as the next President

of the United States.

Thank you.

Thank you. God bless you.

What was once a dream.

...is now a reality.

I've always said that our dreams

are like our children.

They need our encouragement

and support to grow.

They must be nurtured

and sheltered...

...but...

...allowed to run free.

We are here to help your dream

become real, America.

And I'm confident

that we'll be here...

...for a long, long time to come.

And so it appears

the American people have spoken.

A few minutes ago...

...I congratulated Governor Douglas

on his victory.

We fought bravely,

but for us the time has come...

...to stand behind

our new president...

...and put aside any feelings

of ill will...

...rancor...

...hostility...

...and serious doubts about

this man's ability to lead a nation...

...that I hope none of us feels.

A funny thing happened...

...on the way to the office tonight.

I got elected President

of the United States.

A funny thing happened

on the way to the hotel tonight.

Now. The people have spoken.

Maybe we don't agree with them.

Congratulations.

What a night.

It's time, sir.

Well, all right then.

Shall we greet the nation

Mr. Vice President-elect.

I guess, but are we sure it's official?

President Douglas just conceded.

I'd say that's a good sign.

Let's go.

I have always believed that dreams...

...are like children.

They need encouragement

and support to grow.

But ultimately...

...it is perseverance that will turn

a dream into a reality...

...countries into world powers...

...and your own Hiroshi Ashino...

...into Matsamuda's insurance

Underwraiter of the Year.

Pleasure. Good. Congrats.

What?!

Jesus Christ!

The thing just grabbed me.

Am I supposed to knock it down?

- You handled it very well.

- You think so?

Tomorrow there'll be a picture of me...

...dancing with a giant dog

in every newspaper on this planet.

It was a panda, sir.

What's the difference?

Why a Japanese company would-?

I don't care.

Did Jefferson dance with a bear?

Did Lincoln?

Did Reagan foxtrot with a panda?

I'll check...

I was President of the United States

I don't dance with animals.

No dancing with animals.

- A message from the president.

- Thanks, Jim.

Jim's off today. I'm Bruce.

Sorry.

You and Jim look alike.

Jim's black sir.

I know.

But you're both...

...tall.

He's sending me to another funeral.

I can't believe I just did it

with Matt Douglas.

You were the leader

of the free world.

My mother has a commemorative plate

with your face on it.

You haven't said anything

about my book.

The new draft better?

I'm your editor. Keep in mind,

I'm supposed to be critical.

It stinks, right?

No, it doesn't- I would never-

It is pretty stinky. Sorry.

You spend too much of the book

talking about what you wanted to do...

...not what you did.

I didn't do much.

How's that for honesty?

I believe this is yours.

Look, Joanna...

...if the book goes or not...

...i don't care.

I'm writing it, cause

I don't know what else to do.
