President-Elect Elizabeth Keane

Played by Elizabeth Marvel

President-Elect Elizabeth Keane

Elizabeth Keane was recently elected President of the United States and is in transition mode. A former senator from New York and a native Manhattanite, Keane is direct, to the point, and not without charm. She had a son who died in combat in Iraq, and this, combined with a lack of foreign policy experience, gives the CIA plenty to worry about.
