Kiefer Sutherland denies '24' paved way for Obama win

London, Nov 22 : Kiefer Sutherland has rubbished reports that his show '24' helped Barack Obama win the US election.

The Illinois senator will become United States' first black president when he takes office in January next year.

The action drama featured a black President in its first five seasons, with actor Dennis Haysbert saying prior to Obama's election victory: "If anything, my portrayal of David Palmer I think may have helped open the eyes of the American people."

However, Sutherland doesn't agree, reports the Daily Express.

He says, "You don't honestly believe that our show helped get the first African-American into the White House do you? All we simply did is look to the future.

"You have a huge African-American population and it was just a matter of time before they were represented politically by a president.

"We have a female president in season seven. You have a 52 per cent population of women and we can clearly see it is just a matter of time before we have a female president."
