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?
