Andrew Doyle is an American politician who served as the 48th vice president of the United States from 2016 to 2017, during Selina Meyer's first term as president of the United States. He previously served as a United States Senator.

Following his vice presidency, he served as the U.S. Secretary of State under President Laura Montez.

Background Edit

Personal Edit

Doyle has been married twice. Both times he got married to "Every Breath You Take" by The Police, which is apparently his favorite song.

Professional Edit

Doyle has had a long, distinguished career in the United States Senate. Teddy Sykes claimed that Doyle spent thirty years as a senator.

In 2013, VP Selina Meyer suggested supporting Doyle's re-election campaign, indicating he would be re-elected in the 2014 United States election cycle.

Doyle's chief of staff is Eric, though he does not appear to have been with Doyle when he became vice president. It's possible Eric was fired after he almost sneezed on Meyer in 2013.

U.S. Senator (until 2016) Edit

Doyle maintained a tenuous relationship with Vice President Selina Meyer and her staff, working with her briefly on the Clean Jobs Bill but only after putting her in a politically tricky situation on how to fill the committee. Doyle wanted no oil people on the task force, but was forced to stomach the placement of ex-oil member Chuck Furnham after being threatened with the placement of Sidney Purcell on the task force.

Following the 2014 Uzbek hostage crisis, he confronted President Stuart Hughes' top aides Kent Davison and Ben Caffrey after the Senate Intelligence Committee, which he chairs, was not properly informed. When impeachment talks emerged in April 2015, Doyle turned his back on the president, along with Roger Furlong and Danny Chung.

Doyle and Furlong turn their backs on Hughes.

In October 2015, when Meyer announced her presidential campaign, Doyle appeared to get Meyer to dump Alicia Bryce, the Universal Child Care lady, and replace them with senior citizens.

Doyle endorsed Selina Meyer in the 2016 primaries. When Meyer became president of the United States in January 2016, he congratulated her, with Meyer calling him "Senator Suck-up." She vetted several candidates for vice president before ultimately deciding to nominate Doyle for the position.

Vice presidency (2016–2017) Edit

Andrew Doyle became vice president of the United States in February 2016. He was able to be nominated and confirmed by Congress within weeks of Meyer's presidency, making it the shortest vice presidential vacancy in U.S. history.

President Meyer promised him influence and a significant role in the White House similar to what she was promised when she took the Vice Presidential nomination from Stuart Hughes. However, she casts him aside in the same way.

That summer, at the Party Convention in Los Angeles, Doyle decides to step off the ticket in the upcoming election as a matter of principle, reluctant to continue as the administration is in the midst of the Medileaks scandal. Ben Cafferty, however, forces him to pretend that he stepped off the ticket because of prostate problems and, though Doyle is resistant, he is ultimately left with no other choice after Ben informs him that his Chief of Staff, Teddy Sykes, has been molesting Jonah and implies that this news could get leaked.

Doyle also appears on Thanksgiving, acting in Selina's stead and answering questions about a salmonella outbreak when Selina is unable to do to the fact that she is recovering from an eye lift. In return for acting on her behalf Selina offers to make him Secretary of State, though in Congressional Ball she promises Secretary of State to Rep. Paul Graves.

In December 2016 and early January 2017, Doyle is able to maneuver a deal with Laura Montez and Jim Marwood so that Montez could be elected in the Senate and automatically ascend to the presidency (with no winner in the House), and in return Doyle would become Secretary of State.

On January 5, 2017, after the Senate ties in casting their votes between Tom James and Montez, Doyle breaks the tie by voting for Montez. When Selina later asks him how he could betray her after she promised to make him Secretary of State, he reveals that he knew about her promising the position to other people and reveals that he has joined Montez's cabinet in that position.

Secretary of State (2017–2021) Edit

In February 2018, Doyle sends Former President Meyer to supervise the first democratic election of the Republic of Georgia. He does this in an effort to establish what he calls the "Doyle Doctrine" of spreading democracy to other nations. However, the Former President steals this idea in a speech at the end of the episode, calling it the "Meyer Doctrine."

Laura Montez went on to lose the 2020 presidential election to Meyer. Considering the distain Meyer developed for Doyle, it's unlikely he would serve in her administration.

Post-political life Edit

Doyle attended the funeral of Selina Meyer in 2045.

AppearancesEdit

He is portrayed by Phil Reeves.
