Homeland: Ireland

His Americana: Foiled bad guys as Remington Steele; retires to the beach in After the Sunset

Motive: “I want to be able to vote for John Kerry.” And we’ll choose the next James Bond. Deal?


Homeland: Canada

Her Americana: Brought back the one-piece swimsuit on Baywatch and the birthday suit in a sex tape with Tommy Lee

Motive: To vote, she says. Frankly, we blame her ex-beau, überpatriot Kid Rock


Homeland: Dominican Republic

His Americana: The leftfielder’s at bats give Red Sox fans reason to live

Motive: He says his parents urged it. He lives in Florida, so, unlike the rest, has swing-state clout
