    LilRah is 100% right I think. They should have Obama or Clinton talk if they win.

      I could be wrong, but I thought they waited to add a President until the end of the term. That would mean that Bush would have been added in 2004 or 2005, so I don't know if that's what really happened. I've never actually seen the show myself, so I don't really know what exactly happens, but I don't think there would be much that the current President would have to say that could possibly be even remotely inspiring. We hear and see them or something about them every day on TV and the Internet, so what would they have to tell us at Disney World in a recording that could be up to 8 years old? I wouldn't mind them standing up for the Mouseketeer-esque roll call, but I don't think the current Presidents should be allowed to do much more than that.

        Regardless of your political opinion why would they just skip one President and continue on to the next? That doesn't support the purpose of the Hall of Presidents.

        "Now?" He has been there since 2002. No one is going to make you visit this attraction, especially since you haven't for a number of years.

        I do realize that changes have been made in the past to the show so there is nothing to say that the next President will follow the same "role" as G. W. Bush currently does. Or who is to say that the show won't change between now and that opportunities as well? Regardless...

        According to Wikipedia -
        Also in 2001, President George W. Bush gave a speech as the current U.S. President. The Audio Animatronic figure created for President Bill Clinton was recycled and used for President George W. Bush. President Clinton is now a lesser Audio Animatronic Figure, and the same is expected for President Bush when he leaves office. The Audio Animatronic used for the current U.S. President is expected to remain as such, but it is unknown how the show will change when a new U.S. President comes into office in 2009.

              Why would that be wrong? He's the president, isn't he?

              I do think they should just keep the past presidents speaking, we see enough of our current ones on the news every night.
              I'd be one of the ones cheering. :P Why is that so surprising?

                Bah you all have it wrong, the new AA being worked on for the HOP is Meg Crofton she pops up at the end of the show at the exit and turns you upside down to shake every last penny out of your pockets..

                  Nope - it's at the beginning. Bush started speaking early in 2001, and Bill Clinton in early 1993. So far they've been able to use the same AA figure with minor changes for body type. If Hillary wins (shudder!), I'm wondering if they'd have to use an entirely new mechanism.

                  I like the current prez being there with a speaking part. I wasn't that politically pleased with Bill Clinton when he first went it, but he did have a memorable line in his speech ("There is nothing wrong with America that can't be cured by what is right with America."). I don't remember a thing about GW Bush's speech, except something about "we're just getting started" at the end. Pretty uninspiring speech.

                    Whatever George W. Bush is, he is no Ronald Reagan at the podium.

                      I think it had something to do with "we're just getting started pissing off the rest of the world and ruining our economy" but I could be wrong...

                        I look forward to George W transitioning to a non speaking role in January!
