The sitting President of the United States at the start of the show, I enjoyed his character, though the show isn’t really about his presidency, but the end of it.

It all starts off grand, everyone is happy at his election party. But before he takes office for real, he thinks Frank Underwood would do better to remain in Congress than be his Secretary of State. Which makes Frank vow revenge.

I didn’t expect to see him again after that, but we do see him in his retirement. Though he seems to be loyal to his party, and refuses to take revenge on Frank.
