William "Bill" Maher, Jr. (born January 20, 1956) was the 46th Vice President of the United States of America and the 45th President of the United States. He first became famous as a stand-up comedian and later political and social commentator before becoming commander-in-chief. He took office after the assassination of President bin-Laden on June 19, 2006.
As President, Maher was much more moderate than his predecessor, his administration did pass laws ensuring the legalization of gay marriage and saw the withdrawal of several thousand troops from South America. Additionally Maher did fullfill his tickets pledge to work with the other North American nations to develop alternative energy; however, he did not pursue President bin-Laden's commitment to eliminate all references to God, despite being an outspoken critic of religion himself, and he did not pursue any other legislation in regards to abortion.
Although he was fairly popular and the economy was stable, Maher did not seek re-election in 2008, choosing instead to pursue more humanitatian efforts.
