    Re: New President to be added to Hall of Presidents?

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

    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...

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

    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.

    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..

    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?

    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.

    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.

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

    Never botherd to go to the hall of presidents. I thought there was a 99.99% chance i'd fall asleep. However, i also think they should have historical presidents speaking.

    I would have to say that the hall of presidents has the most regular update schedule of any attraction thanks to the election process so no matter who does get elected it will be updated.

Already I can hear rants like, "they snubbed Clinton because she is a woman", or "Disney is racist because they won't let the first Black president speak!". While I think this is silly, I think it is a valid problem Disney might find itself facing.
    That's is true. No matter what happens (whether Clinton wins, Obama wins, or McCain wins), America will either be sexist, racist, or age discriminating. Clinton will put up a fight anyhow just so she can be in the same attraction as her husband. Where this election could end up meaning the first female president or the first black president, how could Disney not put them in the attraction. This isn't any old boring election ... it's a turning point for America.

    They should just put the modern Presidents in the silent er... contemplative poses that they were famous for and leave it at that. Here are a couple of my suggestions:

    I think it's kind of cool to see the current President speak.

    Maybe they could do an introduction only, so we get the novelty of it out of the way, and then Lincoln & Friends come to life and it gets historical and educational.

    They could even make it a bit more interesting if they put in a word about "the only President with a wooden leg!" "the only bachelor president" or "the oldest president" etc. before introducing them. Maybe consider making it like a Presidential Trivia show? After all, the American Adventure pretty much serves the original purpose of the Hall of Presidents.

    Personally I think they should go back to the historical presidents speaking.

    But honestly, hearing the AA GW speak is actually better than the one that is currently sitting in the oval office.
