Ok, the same topic but I guess little harder Wink

You are President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1944. You just was preassured by party leadership to drop Henry Wallace from the ticket, yet you couldn't stomach Truman either. You have to chose your new running-mate

Don't mind he'll be your successor. You don't know you'll die soon Wink

Senator J. Lister Hill of Alabama.

Great choice, congratulations Ben Smiley Hill, a popular and progressive Democrat from conservative Alabama. Acceatable for Southerners and progressives alike

Difficult. Certainly a progressive democrat. Hill could therefore be a good choice, as Kalwejt said.

Our numbers are dwindling. Our words are confused.
Some of them have been twisted by the enemy
until they can no longer be recognized.

Now what is wrong, or false, in what we have said?
Just some parts, or everything?
On whom can we still rely? Are we survivors, cast
away by the current? Will we be left behind,
no longer understanding anyone and being understood by no one?
Must we rely on luck?

This is what you ask. Expect
no answer but your own.

I would consider Robert La Follette, Jr. Well, he was not a Democrat, but FDR himself said, he'd accept him as a succesor.

But seriously I'd like to ask Wendell Willkie (nobody suspected he'd die in 1944). Roosevelt, according to some sources, intended to brigh Liberal Republicans to Democratic Party and let conservative Dems go to Republicans and created system where there would be two parties: liberal and conservative.

To me Robert La Follette Jr. always seemed like the natural choice.

If only he had succeeded, we would have been free of Dixiecrats and have passed Civil Rights sooner...

Yeah, but Wallace got his revenge 20 years later...

Douglas refused.

Alben Barkley; how's that for inoffensive?

Update reading list

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.
