You might've heard that there's a presidential election going on, and it's taking a toll on plenty of people's mental health. Really.
So it might be time to imagine another political world — a fake one.
Barack Obama might be our first black US president, and Hillary Clinton the first female nominee for president from a major party, but they're hardly firsts in fiction.
We've put together a list of the most popular on-screen commanders in chief to get you through the election.
If you're not happy with the election outcome, we recommend checking in with one of these reigning officers.
12. GEENA DAVIS: "Commander in Chief" (2005-2006)
Davis proved that if a guy could be president, so could a woman.
She played President Mackenzie Allen on ABC's short-lived "Commander in Chief."
11. ANTHONY HOPKINS played two presidents two years apart in 'Nixon' and 'Amistad' (1995 and 1997)
Hopkins may not look like Nixon, but he mastered the 37th president's mannerisms.
Two years later, he played John Quincy Adams in "Amistad."
10. GARY SINISE: 'Truman' (1995)
Sinise won the 1996 Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Miniseries or TV Film for his role as the 33rd president in the HBO film.
