As exciting as it has been for many women to envision the President of the United States, even as fictional as Fitzgerald Thomas Grant III is, stepping out on his wife, especially a manipulative and conniving one like Mellie, and risking it all, the presidency, for his self-proclaimed one true love, Olivia Pope, the reality is Fitz is nothing special. Yes, some men are married to the wrong woman and find the right one at inopportune times, but POTUS Fitzgerald Grant is not one of them. There are 10 huge reasons Fitz, POTUS aside, is not the man for Olivia Pope. –ronda racha penrice
1) He’s cheated before. Olivia is not the first woman with whom Fitz has stepped out on his wife. Remember Amanda Tanner? Or better yet, Fitz telling Olivia that she left him vulnerable, implying she was the reason he was weak against Amanda?
2) He is stalking Olivia. In recent episodes, Olivia’s life has come into danger, but prior to this legitimate danger Fitz had used the full weight of his presidency to pursue Olivia, although she repeatedly demanded that he stop. If it were any other man, there would be a restraining order against him.
