Ben is the President's sensitive and sometimes depressed Chief of Staff. His one wish is to be cryogenically suspended, but to "never wake up...just stay suspended." When things get overwhelming, Ben has a tendency to hide in a supply closet and realign himself. What he loves most in this world is his nine-cup coffee thermos - "It's the only thing I'd save if this building were on fire." Despite being a little high-strung, Ben can be very insightful: "We all know the White House would work so much better if there wasn't a President, but there is, so we work around that."
