James Madison (March 16, 1751 – June 28, 1835) was the fourth President of the United States from 1809 to 1817.

He was President during the War of 1812, a fact known by the Secret Service agents of Amy Carter. ("Amy Carter in School" in 1977 - Fran Tarkenton)

Dana Carvey had walked off with a pen belonging to Madison from the the White House, and was therefore beat up by the Secret Service agents for doing so. ("A Message From the Former President of the United States" in 1994 - Dana Carvey)

Cesar Chavez High School was originally called "James Madison High School" after Madison. ("The Delicious Dish" in 2000 - Dana Carvey)

In 2000, James Madison appeared on Weekend Update to deliver a report on how the founding fathers would have viewed the recent election. Madison was instantly transfixed on the "indoor sun," the "magic chair," a ballpoint pen, and the handsomeness of Tina Fey. He left after learning from Jimmy Fallon where one can find lodging and a whore. ("Weekend Update with Jimmy Fallon and Tina Fey" in 2000 - Lucy Liu)

Madison and two other statesmen once were entertained by Thomas Jefferson at his home in Monticello. During their evening, Jefferson met Sally Hemings, and Madison and the statesmen talked about Jefferson and other famed statesmen's affinities. Madison knew that Benjamin Franklin was a "chubby chaser" and about John Adams preference for Asians, which he had never actually seen.
