Poll Suggestion: Presidential Lawmen

  • Updated 6 months ago
Several of our American Presidents were Lawyers. Obviously they never
adhered to the saying, "No Lawyer should ever be a Law-maker, for it is a 'Conflict of Interest'" Several Actors have played some of these Presidents. What was your favorite Presidential Actor?
Poll Inspired by a suggestion from Dimos Dicoudis. Thanks
List: https://www.imdb.com/list/ls045014500/
Poll: TBD

"What was your favorite Presidential Actor?" What are you asking?  Among other grammatical issues, this question doesn't make any sense.

You are correct! What was, was correct for the President. What was, was not correct for the actor. What we had here was failure to communicate! What was the solution, I asked myself? Who should I seek? Was I capable. What to do? Who or what, that is the question. Was or is. What is right. What I asked myself was, who would correct me if I was wrong? What I decided was, "What was" would be transformed into "Who is" Is this what was needed Stephen?

Man I was running out of ways to use Who, What, Was, and is. LOL
Thanks for pointing out my woefully inadequate sentence construct.
Cheers...

I'm confused. Doesn't "lawman" usually refer to police officers, police detectives, police inspectors, police agents, sheriffs, sheriffs' deputies, constables, beadles, justices of the peace and other law enforcement personnel, rather than lawyers, paralegals or attorneys at law? Or does it suffice as an umbrella term for both along with judges, magistrates and legislators?

O, I see what you mean. Yes, hyphenation probably could suffice.
