As predicted, Travis Morgan wants nothing to do with being the President of the United States. The man is an adventurer, a wanderer, a free spirit who likes to go where the winds might take him and he lives to battle. He was caged once and though it was with the woman he loved, it would be hard for him to take a position that would see him trapped like that once again. But for all his protestations, Morgan agrees for if he does not take up the job then there is a risk that everything he just did, everything he just fought for would all be for naught. What is most surprising about this issue is that out of everyone in the cast, it is Shakira who is the voice of reason and convinces Morgan to go through with the task. Of all the people there are, you would never think that Shakira would the one to counsel someone to do something they did not wish to do as she herself hates following orders. It is a lot of fun to see Morgan become the President of the United States, especially as he takes the oath of office in his normal attire consisting of battle gear and loin cloth. Morgan than gets doubly frustrated as the story goes along and he is then forced to do what all leaders must do which is to lead and answer every little inane question and requisition that comes his way. Things do come full circle though as Morgan has an idea and with Reno’s help, he may have just found a way to get back to his own time. This was definitely an entertaining story from Cary Burkett, Dan Jurgens and the rest of the team and if things work out, it will be good to see him head home to Tara.
