Since the Whigs have been slowly dying as a party, would a Vance victory mean that some of the People's Alliance/moderate Unionists in the House voted for him?

Also something to consider in future elections; the real-life Mormons pushed for women's suffrage from about the 1870s onward, so that could be an issue in the future.

It could also mean a major comeback for the Whigs in the congressional elections and thus a coalition between the People's alliance and the Whigs if the newly elected Congress votes on this rather than the old one.

That wasn't just them though, the rural states in the west were generally supportive of women's suffrage.  I'd argue the Mormons supporting it was more a result of the fact that they lived mainly in the rural, western states IRL.

32 votes for President, 25 votes for Vice-President Tongue  I think we'll probably need two threads if it ever goes to Congress in the future, though it is obviously Dallas' call.  Also someone just voted for Cleveland and Custer without picking anyone for VP (this morning there were 28 voters and now there are 29, but Cleveland and Custer have both gained one vote while neither VP candidate has).

Whoa: RGA goes thermonuclear on Sheheen. Now that's what I call a negative ad.

Its South Carolina, so this sort of thing is to be expected.

If we assume the first House round would be just like this (which it almost certainly will be) and that Custer and Vance go to the second round, and therefore that we bosses are to be kingmakers, I propose a Vance/Smith unity ticket (and possibly a merger).

I dunno how much influence we actually have, but if we can decide that, that sounds alright. I assume it'd be called the People's Alliance?

I think the good course now would be for the Destiny and Whig parties to merge into the PA.

Despite being a Whig who played a leading role in the opposition to a merger in this election, I am inclined to agree barring a completely unexpected development or candidate (btw, I thought the destiny party already merged).  However, if there isn't a merger, I'd like to add as a note to the author that Bryan should probably be an option at both party's conventions since he ran for (and won) both the Democratic and Populist nominations IRL.  Additionally, Vance should probably be an option for The People's Alliance if there is a merger, its hard to imagine that an incumbent President's party would merge and ditch him/her entirely.  Of course, this all assumes Vance wins which is far from certain Tongue  We certainly got an exciting election though Smiley

If the election does go to the House, wouldn't it need to be the second round of the House vote (so that we don't just redo the election with the same candidates).

Goddammit, it's 12-11-11! How about we vote for the next one of Vance or Custer to get a vote?

Nah, its going to the House regardless.

Ehrlich is in.

Deep breaths, Democrats. We've got redemption on our hands.

Justice or Ken Welch (Walch?) would be far better.

I've heard that Justice was a lazy campaigner when he ran against Bill Young, but he otherwise seems pretty good.

He had no chance of winning then though.

Ah heck, I'll go with Vance. EDIT: And of course, the one time I choose the non-Radical/People's Alliance candidate, they're in third place.

People should support Custer/Smith then, I guess.

He's one vote away from first place Tongue

I'd urge everyone to support Vance/Teller.

The vote has failed, 12-12. Senators Sam Cataldo and Bob Odell voted for repeal with the Democrats, and Lou D'Allessandro crossed to vote against repeal. There is no tiebreaker in the NH Senate, so the bill is dead.

I'm more concerned about the Senate President refusing to bring the decriminalization bill to the floor myself.

Right, because decriminalizing marijuana is clearly more important than making sure people who are wrongly convicted don't get executed for crimes they didn't commit Roll Eyes

The Washington Post

With a 400+ EV landslide, President Bush and Vice President Cheney have been shut out of the Republican Party, thanks to the monster of the ticket we know as the Daschle/Cleland, who crushed the fragile attempt at a third term by Bush, who lost the Senate and House to the Democrats due to a mix of reasons, mostly due to his repeal of the 22nd Amendment in early 2006, which both Cleland and failed Republican Candidate Chaffee bashed the incumbent for. President Daschle promises to include Universal Health Care and a 12 Dollar Minimum wage in his new package, entitled "Daschlecare", economists see the DOW rebounding with 100 points by May. President Bush has given his concession speech a couple of hours ago.

Will the mass-murdering Cambodian dictator sink the Guntaker?

Will Snowstalker stop making stupid posts?

Given that he is basically a true leftist cross between BTRD and BushOklahoma, I highly doubt it.

Also this has been over for about a day.

Can we get a general election, Dallas?

No. Once you meet the republican base, you realize where the Klan has gone.

Hillary is defeated in the Primaries by Warren, who goes on to defeat Santorum/Cruz, taking Ohio in a landslide.
