Clearly Hitchens.

Oh, come on. Dear Torie was nearly nominated by my predecessor and I consulted with him prior to nominating Torie. I'll not have The People's Administration turned into some firebreathing group of radicals nor will I allow The Era to be tarnished. We were just handsome boys with a radical gay agenda.

Sure, but as a republican he doesn't exactly represent my political views. Besides, in that case, as in the case of a certain other R-NY I voted against the majority of my party.

Say what you like about my position that we should let the executive branch appoint who they want, but it's not something I discovered after labor's nominees started to get voted down.

Right. I'm not accusing you of playing politics with your vote at all. I was merely defending my administration since I saw Torie and Cincinnatus being lumped in with this current spat, when we all know the circumstances surrounding their nominations were far different than they are right now.

I don't know what the most controversial thing I tried to do was in terms of causing an uproar. I guess it was when I refused to sign that bill that said the federal government could regulate regional/municipal parks, but even my successor shared my view on that.

     Consolidation was pretty controversial, though everyone involved with that project was let off more or less unscathed. I don't think any nominees were rejected over it.

I think by in large, a small majority supported consolidation, just not nearly enough to pass 4/5ths of the regions. The amendments were not passed by 1 party through the senate - there had been a broad coalition behind it. But you're right, I forgot that consolidation was controversial by the Era's standards.

Consolidation wasn't as controversial because there were figures on the right that supported it, while with this there is clearly Labor on one side and the rest of the nation on the other.

are you going to continue this timeline on, or will there be an epilogue of sorts (like what happens to President Allen and such).

also, lol, Senator Darrell Issa, I have a feeling he'll either a) move to the left heavily or b) not run for a second term.

Greg Abbott, after three terms, retires, and a Democrat wins that election in 2026.

That's probably somewhat accurate, though I suspect that Curtis has even more ground to make up. I want to see PPP's poll, should it ever come.

This will be a tougher race for Begich to win now. Sullivan is the strongest general election candidate in my mind.

Miller's strong performance is pretty incredible considering the lack of funds he had and his incredibly weak level of advertising. If he had even close to the money Sullivan had, he would be wiping the floor with both of them. And Treadwell's performance is pretty embarrassing, not even close to what I was expecting him to do.

I want to see how this continues, but in Wyoming, A former statewide officer trails the incumbent Governor AND a Some Dude to the Some Dude level.

Haynes got 7% of the general election vote in 2010 as a write-in. I guess Wyomingites have a special foundness for black Tea Partiers? (FTR, I support Haynes as well)

Wow, didn't know that. That's kind of impressive, actualy.

19  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2014 Gubernatorial Election Polls / Re: FL-SurveyUSA: Gov. Scott (R) up 3 on: August 19, 2014, 06:45:00 pm
Another poll with a slight Scott lead and people claiming this race is over why does this happen all the time? These two have been exchanging leads for months now this is nothing new.

This race is far from over, I can see Crist winning this race due to Scott's criminal past and anti-charismatic personality, it's just hilarious the dramatic shift this race has taken on.
20  Questions and Answers / Presidential Election Process / Re: What happens if the candidates get the EXACT same number of votes in a state? on: August 19, 2014, 06:35:39 pm
A  likable but politically oblivious everyman gets to cast the deciding vote. Hilarious hi-jinx ensue as both presidential candidates arrive in his small town to personally woo him for his vote.

but who is played by Rob Schneider?
21  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Which states will the GOP win? on: August 19, 2014, 06:31:49 pm
SD, WV, MT, AR, LA, and NC, with Iowa and Colorado both being within a point, Alaska within three, and Minnesota closer than New Hampshire.

This is hilarious. Crist blew double digit leads and is now in the hole to Lord Voldemort.
