The old parties melt away as now the country polarizes between the ultra-Right and the ultra-Left in one epic election. Representing the right is former Alabama Governor George Wallace on the American Independence ticket. He is endorsed by figures such as Ronald Reagan and Richard Nixon. On the Left is Pigasus, nominee of the Yippie party and endorsed by folks such as Eugene McCarthy, the traditional Yippie crowd, and others.

Wallace may have been a segregationist, but in 1968, only about 25% of the electorate would have backed Pigasus, so Wallace blow-out.

Nixon would have never endorsed a segregationist like Wallace, and Reagan probably wouldn't have either.

Also, c'mon. If we're going on the idea that friggin' Pigasus is the only candidate the Left has, you're gonna have to suspend dis-belief here.

I have NO idea what I would do here.  If anybody, probably Pigasus, but a write-in would be my first choice.
