Still the Rise of Progressivism
NOTE: ITTL, Catholics go over to the Conservative Party in the late twenties following a takeover of the Democrats by Southern Populists. Therefore, the Kennedys, unlikely as I view it in RL, are in the Conservative Party ITTL. Had it not been for William H. Murray, they likely would have remained Democrats until the party collapsed, and maybe even joined the Progressives. Or maybe the party wouldn't have collapsed.

Joseph P Kennedy Jr.
Party: Conservative
Career:
-Congressman from Massachusetts' 11th Congressional District (January 4th, 1945-January 1st, 1947)
-Governor of Massachusetts (January 2nd, 1947-January 2nd, 1953)
-Vice-President of the United States of America (January 4th, 1953-July 3rd, 1953) under Robert Taft
-38th President of the United States of America (July 3rd, 1953-January 4th,1961)
Summary:
Son of former Secretary of State (1926-1929) and Governor of Massachusetts (1937-1941) Joseph P. Kennedy Sr., hero pilot of the Second Great War Joe Jr. would have large shoes to fill upon his return to America in 1943. Elected Congressman in 1944 as many other young veterans (notably Conservatives Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford) did, he would soon be on the fast-track for a spot on the 1952 Conservative party ticket. Taft, in order to appease Catholics and North-Easterners rather than Southerners that time around, would choose the young and vibrant Kennedy, a contrast to Taft's own stiffness. With President Taft's stomach cancer however, he would die, creating "the saddest 4th of July in American history), leaving the young and able Kennedy in charge. Proving to be a Conservative version of Teddy Roosevelt, he would become one of America's most popular leaders, winning re-sounding re-election in 1956, but, surprisingly, declining re-nomination in 1960, handing the nomination off to Vice-President Nixon.

Richard M. Nixon
Party: Conservative
Career:
-Congressman from California's 12th Congressional District (January 4th, 1945-January 4th, 1951)
-United States Senator from California (January 4th, 1951-January 5th, 1953)
-United States Secretary of War (January 5th, 1953-May 19th, 1954) under Robert Taft, Joe Kennedy Jr.
-Governor of California (January 5th, 1955-December 19th, 1956)
-Vice-President of the United States of America (January 4th, 1957-January 4th, 1961) under Joe Kennedy Jr.
-United States Senator from California (January 4th, 1963-January 4th, 1969)
-Ambassador to the League of Nations (January 4th, 1973-January 4th, 1977) under Howard Baker

Earl Warren
Party: Republican, Progressive
Career:
-Alameda County District Attorney (1925-1937)
-United States Assitant Attorney General (January 19th, 1937-June 3rd, 1938)
-United States Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Franklin D. Roosevelt (June 3rd, 1938-July 20th, 1938) under Theodore Roosevelt Jr.

-United States Secretary of the Navy (July 20th, 1938-June 5th, 1940)

Barack Hussein Obama II (1961-2002)

Born to a black father and a white mother, Obama was born in Hawaii but moved to Kenya as a child after his mother's death in a car crash (Obama Sr. wasn't a deadbeat). In 1982, a military coup backed by the CIA overthrew the left-leaning president at the time. However, by the Clinton administration, the regime showed signs of weakness. The young Barack was among the leaders of the revolution which toppled the junta and formed a provisional government, which held democratic elections a month later. Barack Obama was inaugurated as the new president in 1999, but sadly assassinated in 2002 by a former military officer who supported the old military government. Obama's main achievements in office included work with U.S. presidents Bill Clinton and Al Gore to fight AIDS, and improving Kenyan infrastructure, and despite his short leadership is widely considered among the best leaders in modern African history.
