Former Vice President Walter Mondale, who did not seek 1984 nomination (which went instead to Gary Hart, who lost in an epic landslide, winning only 7 ev from D.C. and RI), captured 1988 nod and selects 41-year ofl Governor Bill Clinton of Arkansas as hus running-mate.

Meanwhile, on the Republican side, in an massive upset, teleevangelist Pat Robertson won primaries over Vice President George H. W. Bush and Senate Minority Leader Bob Dole, seleting in order to balance the ticket, former Governor Lamar Alexander of Tennessee for his running-mate.

Mad as hell and scared with teleevangelist as GOP nominee, Bush and Dole made unlikely alliance and run together under Independent Republican Banner, with full Reagan's White House backing.

Meanwhile, Jesse Jackson announced his own insurgent "Progressive" bid with Ohio Congressman (in his universe since 1983) Dennis Kucinich.

It's a good thing to be laughed at. It's better than to be ignored

Mondale narrowly wins. The Evangelical third party takes away much more votes from Bush Sr. than Jesse Jackson takes away from Mondale.

Ick, four terrible choices. Mondale would probably win in a landslide, as Jackson would really take away very little (if he gets anything at all) from Mondale, and Bush would take a LOT from Robertson.

lol. Pat Robertson and Lamar Alexander, absolutely no chance of that happening. For fun though:



Red - Mondale/Clinton (D) 42%
Blue - Robertson/Alexander (R) 22%
Green - Bush/Dole (IR) 28%
N/A - Jackson/Kucinich (P) 8%

Robertson wins the deep south while Bush wins other traditionally Republican states. The conservative vote is irreparably split, leading to the election of Walter Mondale.
