Can anyone plot out an alternative history where Vice President Richard M. Nixon edges to victory over Senator John F. Kennedy in November 1960?

Sure.  Why don't you plot it out?

I am actually plotting out my own timeline were Nixon is elected in 1960, but I will not be ready to post it for at least several weeks. I have it drafted out until about 1984 or so, but it will likely continue until the present day.

I can vouch for this.  In my social circle, we regularly sing songs, or write poetry, about the fabled exploits of Gov. Haley.

Cool. As someone who's obsessed over that idea myself, I'm looking forward to it!

The idea of Nixon wining in 1960 is also an alternate history scenario that I enjoy as well! The point of divergence I am probably going to go with involves LBJ declining to serve as JFK's running mate.
