    Probable the could have him and Lincoln return...but for a new president we won't get one until the 4th of July mini-event.

    I'd like to see Theodore Roosevelt only because he is one of great presidents. He was even in the Simpsons so it's not that big of a stretch :D

    Can't see Bush ever allowing his likeness to the game.

    As a public official, it may be possible to use his likeness without his approval. (A whole slew of presidential likenesses have been on TV including SNL and of course Bush and Clinton in the Simpsons)

    Although I would not expect Bush Sr. in the game. Morel likely a release of past presidents, but would have expected the release by now if they were going to do anything.

    Well, President's Day falls approximately between the birthdays of Lincoln and Washington (the holiday started off as Washington's Birthday, and was shifted some fifty years ago.) I'm not sure it would be entirely fitting to extend the characters beyond those two.
    ...Not that I would raise a stink if they did, just don't think it's fitting.

    In California, there used to be two separate state holidays -- Lincoln's Birthday (February 12) (my dad's bday, BTW) and Washington's Birthday (February 22) (my mom's bday, BTW). (As if that's not cute enough, they were married on June 14(Flag Day)

    Copyright/trademark etc laws have allowances for use of public figures (including politicians) for purposes of satire/parody. It's how Bush Sr. and other Presidents have appeared on Simpsons in the first place (as well as other comedy programs like the various political and media figures that are parodied on Saturday Night Live) without that individual's approval. So it's certainly possible.

    If they gave us Bush Sr. it would be pretty great if the quest ended with another character for free- Gerald Ford.
    Including tasks such as:

    Drink Beer
    Eat Nachos
    Watch Football
    Trip

    Bush is still alive and they might be reluctant to have a living political figure in the game. Fair use or not, it's still a hot potato.

    Gerald Ford on the other hand is deceased...he'd make a good candidate to have in the game.

    Why do you want him (or Nixon) if you don't know who he is?
