James "Jim" Prescott was Vice President of the United States of America under President David Palmer.

Before Day 2

Prescott was elected as the Vice-President of the United States under President David Palmer. Prescott served in the Mississippi State Senate for eight years before serving as Lieutenant Governor for three four-year terms (losing re-election in 1991) and later was elected to the United States Senate in 1996, defeating Republican incumbent Thad Cochran.

Day 2

Following a failed nuclear attack on the United States, retaliatory strikes were planned against three middle eastern countries believed to be supporting the terrorists responsible. President David Palmer was hesitant to launch the strikes following word from CTU agent Jack Bauer that the information implicating the three countries may have been fabricated.

Jim Prescott is sworn in as President.

Prescott, believing the evidence to be legitimate, and the window for a successful strike limited, collaborated with Palmer's Chief of Staff, Mike Novick, and several members of his Cabinet to invoke the 25th Amendment to declare Palmer unfit to lead, remove him from office, and install Prescott as Acting President. This caused tension between him and Palmer, and, before the vote occured, Palmer said that if he won he wanted Prescott's resignation.

After learning that the entire situation was orchestrated by a businessman named Peter Kingsley (after Kingsley implicated himself during a recorded conversation with Palmer's ex-wife Sherry Palmer), Prescott aborted the planned attacks and restored Palmer to power. Shamed by his actions, he and the cabinet members who voted against Palmer offered their resignations. Palmer warned them that they made a grave mistake but did not accept their resignations.

Ironically, Palmer was gravely injured in an assassination attempt only minutes later, forcing Prescott to take office once again.

The Game

Following Mandy's attempted assassination of President Palmer, Vice President Prescott assumed Palmer's duties as President, until he himself became the target of an assassination attempt by Max, the same individual who arranged the attack on Palmer. The attempt was ultimately foiled by CTU agents, however, he was injured in the blast by an exploding vehicle. With Prescott in critical condition, Palmer decided to retake office.

Day 3

During the events of Day 3, Vice President Prescott participated via teleconference in a cabinet briefing regarding the threat of the Cordilla Virus and the demands of Stephen Saunders after the execution of Ryan Chappelle. Prescott was later named as the Democratic Presidential nominee in the 2004 Presidential Election after President Palmer withdrew from seeking re-election to a second four-year term, Prescott lost the general election handily to Republican U.S. Senator John Keeler of Minnesota.
