Judging by their
looks, conservative United States President Bill Mitchell
and liberal minded temp-agency owner Dave Kovic could be
identical twins separated at birth. When two Secret
Service agents, at Chief-of-Staff Bob Alexander's request,
clandestinely draft Dave into servicing his country
by temporarily standing-in for President Mitchell, the
carefree humanitarian gladly answers his call to duty.
After all, as the President's look-alike Dave has aped
austere Mitchell before.
Luckily, the plan goes
off without a hitch. But in an ironic twist of fate,
President Mitchell is incapacitated, leaving Dave
in a political hot-spot. Dave finds himself in the
oval office filling in for the president who has
fallen ill. Lacking the political savvy of the real
president, Dave proceeds to govern the country with
a refreshingly straight-forward approach. Once Dave
takes the extraordinary opportunity to implement
progressive programs, reduce the national deficit and
significantly effect social change, he nearly overturns
Mitchell's reactionary administration, even as the very
handlers begin conspiring against him.
