Kiefer Sutherland Denies '24' Helped Obama Win
Dennis Haysbert, who played President David Palmer in five seasons of "24," had previously claimed that his character contributed to Obama's success, by "opening the public's minds" to a black president.
But Sutherland doesn't agree. He says, "You don't honestly believe that our show helped get the first African-American into the White House do you? All we simply did is look to the future. You have a huge African-American population and it was just a matter of time before they were represented politically by a president.
"We have a female president in season seven. You have a 52 percent population of women and we can clearly see it is just a matter of time before we have a female president."
