Well … sort of. To celebrate the release of his new film Hyde Park on Hudson, we’re giving one reader a $100 gift card.

Bill Murray Hyde Park on HudsonBill Murray is a lot of things. Hilarious. A pretty good golfer. A very good actor. But is he presidential? Turns out, he totally pulls off the role of President Franklin D. Roosevelt in the new film Hyde Park On Hudson — and while the movie has plenty of humor, Murray isn’t playing FDR for the polio gags. Instead, the movie centers around the first time British royals visited America, and how that affected our eventual alliance during World War II.

To celebrate the release of the movie, we’re giving one reader a $100 American Express gift card. (Trivia: That would have been nearly enough to buy all of England during the Great Depression.) To win, here’s all you have to do:

Step 1: Like us on Facebook.

Step 2: In the comments section of this story (below), answer this question: Who is the funniest U.S. president, and why?

You have until January 18th at 11:59pm to enter. Good luck!

Shaunie Wyatt (Sat, 05 Jan 2013 04:45:32 +0000): Bill Clinton because of the entire lying under oath with a straight face and his impeachment of monica l.
David Xiaoxi Li (Mon, 07 Jan 2013 14:58:12 +0000): Theodore Roosevelt was famous for his sense of humor. Take this quote, for instance: "If you could kick the person in the pants responsible for most of your trouble, you wouldn't sit for a month."
Laurie Thompson (Mon, 07 Jan 2013 16:15:11 +0000): George W Bush. He was funniest when laughing at himself.
Don Renyer (Mon, 07 Jan 2013 16:29:08 +0000): Calvin Coolidge hands down. Newer presidents have their lines scripted. When Coolidge decided not to run for re-election in 1928, a reporter asked him, "Why don't you want to be president anymore?" The president replied: "Because there's no chance for advancement."
Carol Buchman (Mon, 07 Jan 2013 16:48:21 +0000): Ronald Reagan. Besides having some very funny roles in movies, he had a great sense of humor. Ronald Reagan: "What makes him think a middle-aged actor, who's played with a chimp, could have a future in politics?" -on Clint Eastwood's bid to become mayor of Carmel.
Gus Elliott (Mon, 07 Jan 2013 17:33:21 +0000): Martin Van Buren...I think we all know why. More like Martin Van Ruin, ha! Am I right?
Shirley Joseph (Mon, 07 Jan 2013 17:33:42 +0000): Bush because if he knew the things he said were jokes.
Mark Jaffe (Mon, 07 Jan 2013 20:30:39 +0000): William Henry Harrison. Died after a month in office. A true comic: always leave them wanting more.
Tian Ayubi (Tue, 08 Jan 2013 03:22:45 +0000): Abraham Lincoln was the funniest, once he was asked, "how long a man's legs should be?" And he answered "long enough to reach the ground." LOL.
