So I know we've discussed (a few times) how the list of Presidents would have looked if a third term was allowed, etc --but I think it might be interesting/fun to see what people think of an altered 22nd Amendment, passed at the same time IRL, that banned consecutive terms.

You can get creative with if there's a little on total number of terms, but I'm thinking just banning consecutive terms.

I'll post my thoughts in a few.

Since Ike was the first President I know of to be affected by the amendment, 1956 looks interesting. A battle between Nixon and the type of man he was born to crusade against: Adlai E. Stevenson. Since Stevenson's real life campaign was based on attacking Nixon, I'd expect a similar campaign in this. Not sure who would win, but you can bet that if Nixon lost he'd come storming back later. I think it's likely though that Nixon would win.

This list assumes few butterflies. I'm giving Stevenson a victory to make it a bit more interesting.

34. Dwight D. Eisenhower (R-NY)/Richard M. Nixon (R-CA) January 20th, 1953-January 20th, 1957
35. Adlai E. Stevenson II (D-IL)/Estes Kefauver (D-TN) January 20th, 1957-January 20th, 1961
36. Estes Kefauver (D-TN)/John F. Kennedy (D-MA) January 20th, 1961-October 14th, 1962
37. John F. Kennedy (D-MA)/vacant October 14th, 1962-January 20th, 1965

38. Richard M. Nixon (R-CA)/James D. Martin (R-AL) January 20th, 1965-January 20th, 1969
39. James D. Martin (R-AL)/Charles H. Percy (R-IL) January 20th, 1969-January 20th, 1973

40. Hubert H. Humphrey (D-MN)/James E. Carter (D-GA) January 20th, 1973-January 20th, 1977
41. Richard M. Nixon (R-CA)/Robert S. Dole (R-KS) January 20th, 1977-August 9th, 1979
42. Robert S. Dole (R-KS)/vacant, Charles H. Percy (R-IL) August 9th, 1979-January 20th, 1981

43. Walter Mondale (D-MN)/Lloyd Bentsen (D-TX) January 20th, 1981-January 20th, 1985
44. Lloyd Bentsen (D-TX)/Edmund G. "Jerry" Brown Jr. (D-CA) January 20th, 1985-January 20th, 1989
45. Walter Mondale (D-MN)/Michael Dukakis (D-MA) January 20th, 1989-January 20th, 1993


After this point, my imagination runs dry.

I know Eisenhower was sick, but you don't think he would have run again?

This is one way to political chaos.

The world is becoming globalized, but cosmopolitanism is being hijacked by the Davos Man. What choice is left besides nationalism? The thought is terrifying, to be honest.

I just hope Trump doesn't turn into some kind of Berlusconi-esque Teflon man.
