Jed Bartlet, You Are a Man of Mystery

I just took a quiz the New York Times has that tests your presidential health knowledge. I failed it (2/8) because apparently I know nothing about the health of past presidents and I'm pretty sure that wasn't really covered in my American history classes. Anyway, the question that really threw me was one that included a question about Jed Bartlet. And I was like, what the hell? Who is Jed Bartlet? How come I've never even heard about one of our presidents? I am so stupid! I thought I knew a decent amount about politics and the presidents (aside from their health apparently), but clearly I know nothing. There are forgettable presidents like Millard Fillmore and Chester Arthur but at least I've heard of them! And then I googled Jed Bartlet and saw that he was a TV president and I didn't feel so bad anymore.
