Sure, it was only a non speaking cameo, but Rickey would like to think that in the future, all viable presidential contenders will need to be vetted by making guest appearances on "24." We, the American electorate, need to know about our potential presidents' folder handling abilities. Do they maintain a sincere look of gravitas as they drop off that important CTU memo in the background of our favorite tv show? Rickey demands to know!
We'd love to see a limp wristed Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama attempt to heft a folder in the sublimely masculine manner that John McCain did in his brief stint on the show. This election season, Rickey is campaigning for guest appearances on "24" for all presidential candidates. That's the utopia Rickey dreams of living in one day.
