It's the day after Presidents' Day, so who better to get the "As Seen On TV" spotlight than a bunch of presidential losers?

In that same 'Futurama' episode in which we got a short tour of the Hall of Presidents in the Head Museum, we also got a quick glimpse into the Closet of Presidential Losers. These heads included:

Bob Dole
Walter Mondale
Rob Reiner
H. Ross Perot
Michael Dukakis
Lyndon LaRouche

Apparently, Rob Reiner is included because the show's producer, David X. Cohen, HATED the movie "The American President", which was directed by Reiner. But even though it was tossed in as a joke for the show, it becomes fact in Toobworld. At some point in the Tooniverse, Reiner will or did run for President.

The head that interests me is the one facing away from the camera. We have no clue as to whom it might be - it can't be John Kerry and certainly not John McCain. I'd like to think that it's a head of somebody yet to run for the highest office in the land, say... in four years - Mitt Romney. But hey, that's just me.
