Frank Sobotka, Bodie, Bubbles - I've got a soft spot for the characters always stuck in the middle of the bullshit that defined that "dark corner of the American experiment" known as Bal'mer.

McNulty is a character who I often resemble (and usually not in a good way) and my friends will sometimes say "Man, you went full McNulty last night"

After the obvious - Bodie and Landsman.

Landsman, for being a bit character, really had a lot of depth to him. I remarked to a friend once, seriously, that Landsman was a much more developed character after five seasons as a bit part on the Wire than Ross Geller in ten seasons starring on Friends. I loved Landsman's poetic side and the way he balanced the necessary sucking up to Rawls with being a good police.

Omar, Stringer Bell and McNulty. And as an aside I really like Callie Thorne (played McNulty's ex).

Obama's favorite character is the safe choice, Omar. He (Obama) reminds me of Lieutenant Daniels.

Am I the only one who likes Lester?
