Elizabeth Keane is the former President of the United States. In the Season 7 finale she decides to stand down from the position in favour of her Vice President Ralph Warner.



Elizabeth Keane was recently elected President of the United States and is in transition mode. A former senator from New York and a native Manhattanite, Keane is direct, to the point, and not without charm. She had a son who died in combat in Iraq, and this, combined with a lack of foreign policy experience, gives the CIA plenty to worry about.

In the Season 6 finale, she became President but Saul, due to his position, was targeted by the police in relation to the attempted assassination on Keane.

Throughout Season 7, she frees Saul Berenson from prison and makes him National Security Advisor but her presidency is under intense scrutiny due to her handling of the situation with people protesting against her position and possible collusion with the Russians.

She is forced to step down in favour of her Vice President Ralph Warner, but is later re-sworn in until she addresses the nation and tells them that she is stepping down from her position permanently, which will see him take him over from her as his successor.
