Election Split

Patti Perret/Warner Bros.; Fox Searchlight; Paramount Pictures; HBO Films

Here's a question for you: Can you make a movie about an election without including a scandal?

Probably not, it seems, if you're going by Election (sex scandal...in student government!), The Ides of March (suicide! Secret pregnancies!), Wag the Dog (sex scandals and fake wars!) or The Manchurian Candidate (the old brainwash-a-candidate-into-becoming-president-and-a-killing-machine story).

But who doesn't like a little political drama in their cinema? So with one week left until President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney's election fates are decided, we decided to recall our favorite candidates (George Clooney! Will Ferrell! Julianne Moore!) involved in big-screen elections.
