This board has been struggling for a while now. This is unfortunate, because I think interactive timelines are wonderful and extremely enjoyable. I'll now be taking matters into my own hands by running my own interactive timeline. I'm setting it in 2008 because I think that's a year people are very familiar with so it'd be easier to do.

2008

In the mid-1980's, the 22nd amendment was officially amended so that Presidents may seek up to three terms, instead of the original two. Despite this, President's Reagan and Clinton both decided not to seek a third term.

In the 2006 midterm elections, Democrats made huge gains, winning back the House. However, a narrow loss by Jim Webb in Virginia prevented Democrats from taking the Senate.


Democratic Candidates:
Hillary Clinton - Napoleon
Barack Obama - vacant
John Edwards - vacant
Al Gore - vacant
Joe Biden - vacant
Chris Dodd - Yelnoc
Joseph Lieberman - True Federalist
Tom Vilsack - vacant
Dennis Kucinich - vacant
Mark Warner - vacant
Bill Richardson - Sirnick
Wesley Clark - vacant
Mike Gravel - Wormyguy


Republican Candidates:
George W. Bush - Feeblepizza
Rudy Giuliani - vacant
John McCain - vacant
Mitt Romney - vacant
Mike Huckabee - vacant
Duncan Hunter - vacant
Ron Paul - Jake Matthews
Kay Bailey Hutchison - vacant
Condoleeza Rice - vacant
Jim Demint - vacant
Fred Thompson - vacant
Donald Trump - tb75
Mark Sanford - ChairmanSanchez

~ Please privately notify me if you'd like to be a candidate not on this list. No third party candidates will be allowed.

~ The start date for this timeline will be July 1st, 2007. Later than they usually begin, but in the past, activity seems to dry up the longer it takes for an election to occur. You may post in past-tense, though.

Unfortunately no, since I'll be running the timeline. Sad I think I'd probably be a bit too biased towards myself if I ran. Wink

I'd like to be Joseph Lieberman, running as a Democrat.  With W. running for a third term, I doubt Lieberman would back McCain openly as he did in real life, so if wants to try to influence the race, he'll need to run himself.

He's probably the most interesting of all the candidates.

Why is Dubya on the candidates list?  Presidents are term limited.

If Ron Paul becomes the automatic presumptive nominee, he'll also be able to start his GE campaign much earlier, and would have a significant advantage over his Democrat. Probably could erase much of the early deficit he'd face.

I may join just to save the Republican Party. Thing is I don't want to be one of the regulars like Mitt or Huck. Duncan Hunter might be interesting...

You could also try someone who isn't on the list. To name a few - Dick Lugar, Chuck Grassley, John Kyl, Olympia Snowe, Sam Brownback, George Allen (who was reelected in 2006).

Further doom the Republican Party to destruction...I prefer Paul. However, I'm not yet decided on entering the game yet.

Anyone else interested? Tb75 has expressed interest in switching to Donald Trump if no other GOP players emerge. I'll leave sign-ups open for another day or so.

Tb75, would you like to play as Trump, or remain as Gore?
