  Mr. President - The Game of Campaign Politics
The game is actually fairly well done and manages to carry a lot of flavor of an election.
Unfortunately, it is horribly out of date (the statistics in the game are compiled from the election results of the 1940 - 1960 elections, which makes it around a half-century behind) and obviously the number of electoral votes for the states have changed.
A game closer to the modern percepion of politics is probably Lie, Cheat and Steal.

 Rules of Card Games: President
In games of this type (which I call climbing games), each player in turn can either pass or play a card or combination which beats the previous play, and the usual object is to get rid of all one's cards as soon as possible.
Such games have been known in the West only for the last twenty years or so, but there are many of them in China, perhaps the most famous being Zheng Shangyou.

The objective of the game is to advance the civilization of the own tribe, which can only be achieved with maintenance of many cities and effective trade of goods with other players.

 GameDaily BIZ: Fair Treatment of Music and Composers in the Games Industry - A Personal Perspective
Games, like movies, now use a music supervisor whose job is to identify and source music that will be added to the soundtrack of each game.
The producer of the game (or motion picture) does not want the underscore, music that may come to be closely identified with the project, to show up unexpectedly, for example, in a "Bud Lite" ad.
As the games industry grows, as games are advertised more and more on television, as game properties are licensed to become movies, and as exposure of games increases through electronic media, music and exploitation of music from games can begin to generate meaningful revenue.

Griffith reasoned that if the President of the United States not only endorsed the game by his presence in the stands, but took time away from the pressing needs of the nation to throw out the ceremonial first pitch, then certainly the average Joe had time to take in nine innings this summer.
President William McKinley was asked to throw out the first pitch at the opener between Washington and Brooklyn.
By convincing Taft to throw out the ceremonial first pitch of the season, Griffith hoped to permanently fix the presidential seal of approval on baseball as the national pastime once and for all, as well as, establish a tradition that spotlighted the Senators as the home team of the most powerful man in the world.

During House debate on March 7, 1800, Marshall called the president “the sole organ of the nation in its external relations, and its sole representative with foreign nations.” It was never his intent to promote inherent, exclusive, or extra-constitutional power for the president.
The president was not the “sole organ” in formulating a treaty or foreign policy in general.
