Why you need to know about ''Jack & Bobby''

THE DEAL Brothers Jack (Matt Long, right) and Bobby (Logan Lerman, left) are two present-day teenagers destined for a great future in politics -- one of them will become President. But for now, they're just trying to survive high school and their demanding professor mom (''Chicago Hope'' star Christine Lahti).

WHAT IT'S LIKE ''Smallville'' with a futuristic political edge

FUN FACT In real life, Matt Long is perfect presidential material -- the newbie actor was a dedicated Boy Scout. Really.

WHY YOU NEED TO KNOW IT Following in the footsteps of other smart, original WB shows like ''Buffy'' and ''Everwood,'' ''Jack & Bobby'' could be a favorite with both teens and grown-ups.

WILL WE WATCH? The real-life election is months away, but this fresh-sounding drama already seems worthy of our vote.
