When political satire and comedy talk-show host, Tom Dobbs (Robin Williams), gets 4 million responses when one night he makes an offhand remark about running for presidency, he seriously considers getting on the ballot. From there on it is a tug-of-war between Dobbs and his crew, especially his manager Jack Menken (Christopher Walken), who like the crew believes that since Dobbs doesn't have a chance in winning they should be as hilarious as they can be, to increase ratings and exposure for Dobbs' talk-show. But somehow the world and Dobbs are flabbergasted, he wins !

But as Eleanor Green (Laura Linney) is trying to reach the new president to tell him; his win is due to a computer glitch that was covered up by her company Delacroy that makes electronic voting machines...
