I've decided its time for me to get back into writing timelines.  I've decided my new timeline will be one that will be on an election wherein the loser in real life had little chance at victory but in the new timeline I'll create some sort of manner by which they won the election.  So what do you guys think would be a good one for me to write on?

I think Alton Parker would make the more interesting TL. I've read Bryan timelines before.

Yeah, after four years of being a non-disruptive poster on the forum, never considered a troublemaker, even someone who was liked well enough to be elected Atlasian President, Napoleon should be allowed to stay.

He's back! I say Alton B. Parker. My history teacher would be looking back on that moment for years wondering how the heck a "god" like Teddy Roosevelt lost to a total "loser" like Alton Parker.

I agree.  And from what you've told me about your history teacher, he probably wouldn't even know who TR is, but he'd know the "conservative evil" that Parker brought to this country, though he also sounds like a party hack and might've turned out a raging libertarian.  Wink.  I'm so sorry for you, man.

Well the election itself may not be my jumping off point so he may not need to beat Roosevelt Wink

Both options are good----WBJ in 1896 leads to Parker in 1904 perhaps? Wink

I'll go with the Alton Parker timeline.  I think its something that has been certainly seen far less.
