In my opinion, it hasn't generated enough interest to justify resuming it.

These new states would also completely change the dynamics of Presidential campaigning. For example, with Illinois being a Republican-leaning state where Obama has a regional advantage, both parties would undoubtedly campaign harder to try to win the state. The true effect of TTL's Illinois' status as a swing state in 2008 and the resulting change of campaign strategy is difficult to determine, but it is entirely feasible for this version of Illinois to be a McCain state.

1972-1976 PM Gerald Ford's Term:

Major Happenings
- Christian Party and DPM John Schmitz threaten to start a coalition with the Liberal Party unless PM Ford ends War in Vietnam. Troops pull out in late 1973. Conservative MPs angry with Ford that he backed down to Christian demands.
- Reform and Progress Party stages protests outside of schools in south that have yet to be desegregated. On May 5, 1974, a major riot takes place in Jackson, MS resulting in the death of 57 African Americans and supporters of desegregation, 19 police officers, and 7 supporters of segregation. A Black MP from the Conservative Party MP and African American Parren James Mitchell of Maryland switches his alliance to the Reform and Progress party, backing a Liberal-RP coalition.

More to come!

This is good. Keep it coming!

I have a few nitpicks about this. First, the Gingrich delay tactic would not even have been necessary. Title 3, Section 15 of the United States Code sets the date for the counting of Electoral Votes at January 6th (after the newly elected Congress is sworn in on January 3rd), so the newly elected Congress always has the responsibility of electing the President and Vice President if there is no electoral majority.

Second, the quorum is not "2/3rds of members from two-thirds of the states," it is "a member or members from two-thirds of the states." This, however, is a moot point anyway because of the first point above.

Third, as per the 20th Amendment, Gantt will not become president, instead he "shall act as President until a President shall have qualified." Presumably, the House gets to keep trying until they pick someone.

I enjoy this TL, but I agree with Antonio. You should give us more details on what the Parliament is doing that differentiates it from RL. For instance, give us some details on how Eugene McCarthy as Prime Minister would be different from LBJ as President. How do these changes affect international events?

And of course, maps would be good, too. Wink

All in all, I think this is a solid concept, but it just needs more meat to make in interesting.

Why did I think that if the election went to the house that the candidate in last place in a three way race was dropped from consideration?

An excerpt from the 12th Amendment:

The person having the greatest Number of votes for President, shall be the President, if such number be a majority of the whole number of Electors appointed; and if no person have such majority, then from the persons having the highest numbers not exceeding three on the list of those voted for as President, the House of Representatives shall choose immediately, by ballot, the President. But in choosing the President, the votes shall be taken by states, the representation from each state having one vote; a quorum for this purpose shall consist of a member or members from two-thirds of the states, and a majority of all the states shall be necessary to a choice. And if the House of Representatives shall not choose a President whenever the right of choice shall devolve upon them, before the fourth day of March next following, then the Vice-President shall act as President, as in the case of the death or other constitutional disability of the President.

I think Bush and Gantt should win. That would make for some very interesting developments later on.
