The comedians who played presidents on "Saturday Night Live" have gathered for a comedic summit in a new Web video on FunnyOrDie.com.

The video, posted Wednesday, stars Fred Armisen as President Barack Obama. During the night, he is visited by the ghosts of presidents past, who urge him to push for financial reform.
