Best Government Employees

Sidney Bristow

The Council for Excellence in Government has identified the top federal officials, at least fictional ones, in an on line poll. America’s favorite TV Fed is Agent Sidney Bristow, played by Jennifer Garner on Alias, receiving 29.6 percent. White House Chief-0f-Staff C.J. Cregg (Allsion Janey) of The West Wing was second at 28.7 percent. Jack Bauer (Kiefer Suterland) who has headed the LA Counter Terrorism Unit, been Special Assistant to the Secretary of Defense, and is now on the run on 24 came in third with 16.2 percent.

In the choice for President, Jeb Bartlet (Martin Sheen) of The West Wing won with 38%. Mackenzie Allen (Geena Davis) of Commander in Chief was second with 25%, followed by David Palmer (Dennis Haysbert) of 24 with 20%. Those only playing people running for President rather than playing the President didn’t do as well with Matt Santos (Jimmy Smit) receiving 10% and Arnold Vinick (Alan Alda) receiving 7%. Both are candidates for President on The West Wing.

Cliff Claven (John Ratzenberger) of Cheers was the overhwelming pick as mailman with 66% choosing him over Newman (Wayne Knight) from Seinfeld. CBS’s CSI shows beat out the detectives from NBC’s Law & Order by only 2% as being better at solving crimes.
