'Parks And Recreation': Leslie Knope's Campaign Highlight Reel Released (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Knope we can .. and did!

In honor of the upcoming fifth season of "Parks And Recreation" and Leslie Knope's (Amy Poehler) unexpected victory, NBC compiled a video highlighting the more dramatic aspects of her campaign.

In the video above, we're reminded of Leslie's opponent, the popular Bobby Newport, the Pawnee crew's speech on an ice skating rink, and of Ann (Rashida Jones) saying the magic words, "You won, Leslie. You won."

So what's the next stop for Leslie now that she's reigning over Pawnee? A Season 5 episode will see her visit Washington, D.C., and creator Mike Schur thinks she could move into the White House someday.

"I don't think the show will be on the air long enough," he told HuffPost TV. "Season 21 -- if we beat 'Gunsmoke,' then maybe she can be president. She's an ambitious person and she's trying to move up the ladder in her chosen career path so I don't think she's going to be content just being a city councilor forever."

Season 5 of "Parks And Recreation" premiers on Thurs., Sept. 20 at 9:30 p.m. ET on NBC.
