This game starts in 1960 and ends in 2020. Which failed Primary candidates would you make president, had they won their

primaries? This also works with viable candidates who were spoken of as potential candidates. Also choose your party,

and an opposite party, my opinion as follows will serve as an example.

1960: Richard Nixon, John F. Kennedy
1964: Barry Goldwater, George Wallace
1968: Richard Nixon, Robert Kennedy
1972: Richard Nixon, George McGovern
1976: Gerald Ford, Jerry Brown
1980: Gerald Ford, Ted Kennedy
1984: Ronald Reagan, George McGovern
1988: George H. W. Bush, Al Gore
1992: George H. W. Bush, Al Gore
1996: Pat Buchanan, Bill Clinton

2016- Walker
2012- Santorum
2008- Huckabee
2004- Bush
2000- Bush
1996- Buchanan
1992- Bush (it's unwise to oust the President in a Primary IN MOST CASES)
1988- Robertson??
1984- RONALD WILSON REAGAN
1980- RONALD WILSON REAGAN
1976- RONALD WILSON REAGAN (there are exceptions, like when Reagan is running)
1972- Richard Nixon
1968- RONALD WILSON REAGAN
1964- Barry Goldwater (I like the '60s Goldwater, not the late-life Goldwater)
1960- Richard Nixon (I like him better than Rockefeller, but I don't know any of the others)
