The list of known Presidents of the United States is unconfirmed, as some clear discrepancies exists between the Stargate canon and the true events of our reality. During the first six seasons of Stargate SG-1, and up until the seventh season episode "Inauguration", the President in office was never identified by name. In "Paradise Lost", set in 2003, Harold Maybourne clearly states that the current administration "is coming to the end of its second term". Since Henry Hayes was inaugurated in 2005 (presumably on January 20, as per tradition) and elected in the fall of 2003, this means that his predecessor must have been in office for 2 terms (uninterrupted, as the show heavily imply), spanning the years 1997-2004. The Stargate SG-1 Adventure Game mentions William Jefferson Clinton as the President in office in 1998, but since this was an unreleased, cancelled roleplaying sourcebook, its canon status is unconfirmed. If Clinton did not take office until a term later, it is possible that the President following Ronald Reagan, possibly George H. W. Bush, served a second term or another President was elected and served a single term. Another possibility is that Bush and Clinton served single terms, and another President served for two terms during the first six/seven seasons of Stargate SG-1.
