3 times Leslie Knope was the ultimate politician

Leslie Knope might be one of the greatest fictional politicians of all time. Her passion and love for Pawnee shines through her public service.

Here are three times Leslie Knope proved to be the ultimate politician:

Gender Politics
That time Leslie set the record straight about women in the political spotlight.

Bipartisanship
Councilman Jamm and Leslie Knope always had opposing views.

Democrats vs. Republicans
The people of Pawnee and Eagleton strongly dislike each other -- sometimes without reason.

Every time Leslie Knope tried to make the world a better place. Which is what we want from every political candidate.
