Both are good pals.  This is definitely a tough one.

Miles would likely beat me. Turnout would be comparable in both parties, with neither side being too excited about their candidate's moderate tendencies.

I was actually thinking the opposite.

If a burial strikes my family as too practical, I'd go for either a viking funeral on one of the Great Lakes or to be sealed up in a tomb with my closest servants and bang-maids so they may wait on my every need in the afterlife.

Here's a possible 269-269 scenario:



PA would be a bit of stretch for tmth, but I don't think I'd have much appeal outside of western PA so he could possibly carry it. The stretch for me would be MS, though I suppose I could frame myself in such a way to win there.

FWIW, I think I'd actually be a great candidate for the Midwest.

Thats why I gave myself MS instead of IA in the 269-269 map. I could see you doing really well in midwest states like IA, where I'd have at least some local and cultural factors working in my favor in MS.

I don't know Miles that well, apart from 'the incident'... Tmth has always been reasonable and thoroughly moderate... so I'd probably support Tmth, I think he could win.

Would something like this be plausible?  This would be one of my ideal maps for any election:



Tmthforu94- 346
MilesC56- 192

While Miles is a good candidate for the South, I don't think I'm necessarily a poor candidate. Imagine Mitch Daniels and Mark Warner - Warner would pick up some Southern states, but it wouldn't be a sweep - Daniels would probably still win the South. Additionally, I don't see how a Republican could lose West Virginia with over 60% unless they were anti-coal, which I'm not. Wink

Mostly this. Honestly, the only Deep South states that would probably be solidly in my column would be LA and AR; TN and GA would be tossups. I do think I'd be a great fit for WV, but not at >60%. Maybe tmth could pick off a few northeastern states if the enough liberals defect to the Greens.

This would probably be the most realistic case:

I reckon a Miles/Tmthforu map could look like a map if the parties purely focused on economic issues. Look at Hashemite's and Anton Kretzier's threads in the International What-Ifs section.

However I reckon Tmthforu would do a better job of holding his base.
