Laura Roslin - the President, a Woman

One of the greatest thing about Battlestar Galactica is that the President is a woman. But she is not any woman, she is a very smart, well-spoken, classy woman. I think it relly shows that a woman in power can do amazing things and be as efficient as a man.
In Battlestar Galactica, Laura Roslin (Mary McDonnell)becomes the President after the 45 people in line for the succession before her die in the Cylon attack. Let's not forget to mention that she got the biggest promotion ever: from Education Minister to President!
And she handles it very well, her first instinct is to find all the survivors of the attack.
None of this would have been possible if it wasn't for the wonderful acting work deon by Mary McDonnell. She really brings the character of Laura Roslin in Battlestar Galactica alive.
To conclude, there wouldn't any better portrayal of a woman President than the one of Laura Roslin on Battlestar Galactica.
