Walter, in 1952, any credible Republican ticket would win.

This must be a pretty poor Republican ticket you are thinking of.

I know this is wrong, but......

How about

Democrat
House Speaker Sam Rayburn of Texas for President
A young Senator Hubert Humphrey of Minnesota for Vice President

Rayburn is highly respected, and would sweep the south.  Rayburn could  conceivably be well liked in Kansas.
Humphrey would help in Minnesota and New England

Republican
Two former unsuccessful Vice Presidential nominees
Governor Earl Warren of California for President
Senator John Bricker of Ohio for Vice President

This ticket would sweep the west and Warren's brand of Republicanism would go over well in parts of the northeast.

Is the Republican Vice Presidential nominee by chance Tom Dewey, which would make a reversal of the 1948 Republican ticket?

Are you by chance thinking of Dwight Eisenhower himself running as a Democrat for President in 1952?

Eisenhower grew up in Kansas.

OK, the Democrat VP candidate remains a mystery.

Ike didn't persuade then Congressman Hugh Scott of Pennsylvania to jump ship, did he?  I'm sure not.

How about, Harry Truman himself, knowing he could not be re-elected President in 1952, ran as Ike's VP, and stayed in public office thanks to Ike's coat tails?

A good pick for Eisenhower, a well established and respected Democrat.

But I have read that Truman briefly toyed with the idea of persuading Eisenhower to run as the Democrat Presidential nominee in 1952, with himself, Truman, as the VP candidate.

Have you ever heard of this temporary lapse into insanity of Truman's?

That was 1948, not 1952.

Michael Bloomberg for President.



Lol Winfield.  This quote is from a thread entitled "what do the following proceed to do if they are not nominated?"

no, ive never heard that story.

i was always under the impression that truman didnt really care for eisenhower.

ive read that truman's first choice for president in 52 was chief justice fred vinson, who refused to run.

I may conceivably reconsider.

Knowing me it's more likely than not.
