Assuming Tsongas won the 1992 presidential nomination:

Who would be possible running mate for him?

Would Perot still run?

And of course, the map (In my opinion, there was simply no rescue for Bush at that point, but Tsongas victory could be significantly smaller than Clinton's)

Discuss.

Jerry Brown might share most of Tsongas' principles. From what I know of the two, they were both business friendly or at least fiscally Conservative Democrats.

Okay, I'll give you fiscally conservative, in the sense of favoring a balanced budget, but he has never been in any way, shape, or form, "business-friendly."

I'm saying what I've heard. I saw a clip where it said Jerry Brown's first budget passed as Governor of California had 5% growth while under Reagan, the yearly budget growth as Governor had been 12%. I also heard, as for Tsongas, that he had been business friendly on Wikipedia, and read on one of the timelines of this forum that he and Jerry were, to quote "Economic Moderates".
