The Rise of the Populists

24. S. Grover Cleveland (Democrat-New York) March 4th, 1893-March 4th, 1897
25. Thomas Brackett Reed (Republican-Maine) March 4th, 1897-September 5th, 1901
26. Theodore Roosevelt (Republican-New York) September 5th, 1901-March 4th, 1909

27. William Jennings Bryan (Populist-Nebraska) March 4th, 1909-March 4th, 1925
28. Theodore Roosevelt (Republican-New York) March 4th, 1917-March 4th, 1917
29. Leonard Wood (Republican-New Hampshire) March 4th, 1921-March 4th, 1925

30. William Jennings Bryan (Populist-Nebraska) March 4th, 1925-July 26th, 1925
31. Eugene Foss (Populist-Nebraska) July 25th, 1925-March 4th, 1929

32. Herbert C. Hoover (Republican-California) March 4th, 1929-January 20th, 1937
33. Frank Knox (Republican-Illinois) January 20th, 1937-January 20th, 1941

34. Charles A. Lindbergh (Populist-Michigan) January 20th, 1941-January 20th, 1949
35. Robert La Follette Jr. (Populist-Wisconsin) January 20th, 1949-January 20th, 1953

36. George Marshall (Republican-Pennsylvania) January 20th, 1953-January 20th, 1961



1940 Election
The war in Europe soon became unpopular and with repeated losses under President Knox, protests soon began to swell. With Senator Lindbergh leading the charge on capitol hill, there was significant pressure to pull out, however, President Knox and the narrow Republican majority refused. With Republicans more unpopular than ever, the stage was set for a Populist re-emergence. In the 1940 election they  nominated their foreign policy leader Lindbergh along with Populist darling Robert La Follette Jr. The ticket was helped greatly when Republican Governor Henry Ford of Michigan endorsed it.

Senator Charles Lindbergh (P-MI)/Senator Robert La Follette Jr. (P-WI) 427 electoral votes, 55.3% of the popular vote
President Franklin Knox (R-IL)/Vice President James W. Wadsworth Jr. (R-NY) 104 electoral votes, 42.7% of the popular vote

1944
The last four years had been a disappointment. While America had withdrawn from the conflict and American boys were home safe, it was at a great cost internationally. As Germany continued to bombard England and Japan had gained a large foothold in mainland China, Secretary of State Ford had held firm in his conviction of American isolation. However, on the domestic front, little had been accomplished. While tariffs had been ramped up (much to the pleasure of Mid-Western Populists but not Western ones) and a large interstate highway system had been approved, not much had been done to directly improve the lives of the American people. With the Republican nomination of Governor Thomas Dewey of New York, a moderate in almost every way and therefore designed to win 51% of the American people, the Populists were on the run. However, Lindbergh remained determined and embarked on a cross-country tour. His speeches helped hold down the West--where poorer farmers had been dis-satisfied with the administration, the South, and of course part of his very own Mid-West. While Republicans captured the big vote states, Lindbergh's hard work had managed to creat a coalition to deliver him re-election.

President Charles Lindbergh (Populist-Michigan)/Vice President Robert La Follette Jr. (Populist-Wisconsin) 290 electoral votes, 49.8% of the popular vote
Governor Thomas Dewey (Republican-New York)/Governor John W. Bricker (Republican-Ohio) 241 electoral votes, 46.4% of the popular vote

Presidents/ Vice-Presidents of the United States
37. Vice-President Richard Nixon/ Governor Spiro Agnew of Maryland (1969-1973)
Richard Nixon gets away with Watergate, and is widely considered the best President since FDR.

37. Vice-President Richard Nixon/ Former Governor John Connally of Texas (1973-1976)
When Agnew resigns, Nixon is still popular enough to demand that the Senate confirm his first choice for Veep: Former Texas Governor and Secretary of the Navy John Connally.

38. Governor Ronald Reagan of California/ Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld of Illinois (1976-1984)
Connally chooses not to run for the Republican nomination for President, allowing Reagan to run as Nixon's successor in 1976. Connally serves as Secretary of State in the Reagan administration.
The 1976 Democratic ticket is Congressman Mo Udall of Arizona and Senator John Glenn of Ohio. They lose in a landslide.
The 1980 Democratic ticket is Senator Ted Kennedy of Massachusetts and Former Governor Jimmy Carter of Georgia. They lose a close election.

40. Former Vice-President/ Secretary of State John Connally of Texas/ Senator Dan Quayle of Indiana (1988-1993)
Connally pulls a comeback, defeating Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole to win the Republican primary. President Connally's popularity allows Christine Todd Whitman to defeat Senator Bill Bradley in a close election.
The 1992 Democratic ticket is Representative Dick Gephardt of Missouri/ Senator Joe Biden of Delaware.

41. Vice-President Dan Quayle/ Senator Bob Dole (1993-1996)
Quayle becomes President after Connally's sudden death in 1994. He is never as popular as Connally, and becomes the first President since Pierce to lose a presidential primary.
The 1996 Republican ticket is Senator Phil Gramm of Texas/ Senator Christine Todd Whitman of New Jersey.
The Republican brand was also hurt by new posthumous revelations about former President Nixon.

42. Senator Al Gore of Tennessee/ Former Governor Bill Clinton of Arkansas (1996-2004)
The 2000 Republican ticket is Speaker of the House Dick Cheney of Wyoming/ Governor Jeb Bush of Florida. Cheney defeated Massachusetts Senator Mitt Romney in the primary.

How could Kissinger be President? Also, given alternate circumstances, I doubt Agnew would be even considered for VP, let alone President in 1968.

It'd still be cool to have a Kissinger Presidency, but sadly impossible. Tongue

The One-Termer era.

42. Former Governor Jerry Brown of California/ Governor Douglas Wilder of Virginia: 1993-1997
Ross Perot wins a total of 53 electoral votes in Maine, Alaska, Kansas, Nevada, Minnesota, Montana, Oregon, Washington and Arizona.

43. Speaker Newt Gingrich of Georgia/ Senator Michael Huffington of California: 1997-2001
Perot chooses New York billionaire Mike Bloomberg as his running mate in 1996.
The Perot/ Bloomberg ticket loses. Bloomberg finishes a close second in the 1997 New York City Mayoral election. He is elected Governor of New York in 1998.
Former Arkansas Governor Bill Clinton is elected to the Senate in 1998.

44. Governor Mike Bloomberg of New York/ Former Vice-President Douglas Wilder: 2001-2005
The Democratic ticket is Senator Ted Kennedy of Massachusetts/ Senator Bill Clinton of Arkansas.
Bloomberg decides not to run for reelection. He is popular enough that Democrats and Republicans argue over his true heir.

45. Senator Bill Clinton of Arkansas/ Governor Mark Warner of Virginia: 2005-20099
The Republican ticket is Governor George W Bush of Texas/ Senator Lynn Cheney of Wyoming.
Clinton is essentially defeated by the economy.

46. Senator George Allen of Virginia/ Secretary of Education Jeb Bush: 2009-201X
Barack Obama is elected Governor of Illinois in 2010. His decision to enter the race late 2011 takes many by surprise, and he quickly becomes the top rival to former Vice-President Mark Warner.
The Democratic ticket is Governor Barack Obama of Illinois/ Senator Russ Feingold of Wisconsin.
Mike Bloomberg is also running for President again with his former Secretary of Defense Jim Webb as running mate.
Polls show the three fairly even.

44. Albert S. Gore Jr. (Democrat-Tennessee)/Evan Bayh (Democrat-Indiana) 2001-2005

45. George W. Bush (Republican-Texas)/Victor Putin (Republican-Alaska) 2005-Present

29. Charles August Lindbergh, father of the famous pilot, was elected in 1920 on a massively anti-Wilson platform, calling for the destruction of the federal reserve and a "return to normalcy" on the foreign policy front. One of the issues had been Wilson's jailing of famous socialist candidate Vladimir Lenin. Lindbergh proved at first an effective president but as the mid-terms passed, he soon began running into trouble with party bosses. Despite personal popularity, it was believed that he wouldn't be allowed re-nomination in 1924. Then he died.

31. Winston Churchill, a former "Rough Rider", Senator from New York, and a member of Henry Cabot Lodge's Irreconcilables, was chosen for Vice President in 1924 and was elected President four years later. He bucked the Republican trend and decided not to support Smoot-Hawley. Nevertheless, the stock market crash destroyed his Presidency and most of his presidency was spent attempting to fix the problem, but with little avail.

32. Joe Steel as he was called, had made his bones as the son of poor immigrants in New York City. With shady socialist ties in the 1910's, he was nevertheless able to rise through the ranks of Tammany Hall and had narrowly won the 1930  New York gubernatorial election. Enacting massive reforms, two years later he stormed into the presidency. However, the "Man of Steel" was unable to maintain his machine on a national level and with the collapse of Tammany Hall under the efforts of gang-busting DA Thomas Dewey, President Steel was brought to court, narrowly evading charges. With many of his programs repealed by the Supreme Court, Joe Steel went down in flames to Senate Majority Leader Charles McNary in 1936.

33. McNary, a devout isolationist, had chosen fellow isolationist, Ohio Senator Alexander Hitler, for Vice President. Despite the urgings of internationalists, including new Senate Majority Leader Winston Churchill, of taking out the Nazi threat in Europe, McNary and his administration stood firm. The 1940 Republican National Convention was rocked by news two weeks earlier that England had fallen to Germany. With McNary's credibility destroyed, he stepped aside. However, his Vice President tried, with failure, to keep the nomination in the hands of isolationists.

34. Politically back from the grave, Winston Churchill proceeded to launch war against Nazi Germany and its allies. Re-elected in a land-slide in 1944, Churchill had seemingly gone form one of the worst American presidents to one of the country's greatest. However, the post-war economy and American opposition to getting into war with the Soviet Union led to Democratic backlash against Churchill's presidency.

35. President Valera is known as the nation's first Catholic President and as a proud social conservative. Too conservative, too "Roman" in fact, for America. In 1952 the Democrats instead nominate his Vice President for his job.

37. President Heath had been nominated in a deal between the GOP's conservative and liberal factions. The monetarist, moderate Governor of Connecticut, he was the compromise candidate between Governor Nelson Rockefeller of New York and Senator John W. Bricker of Ohio. His administration was seen as largely a liberal one, as, while taxes were raised, benefits were by-and-large expanded and universal healthcare was even passed.

38. Born the son of steel workers in Pennsylvania, Brezhnev's appeal to the working class in the 1964 election was the main reason he won. Compared to Heath's upper-class "elitism", Brezhnev was a man of the people. A veteran of World War II and two-term Governor of Pennzylvani, during his term, the War in Vietnam was escalated to an incredible height. Meawhile, inflation set in as he repealed many of Heath's middle-class tax cuts while keeping expenditures at record highs.

39. Kissinger, a one-term Senator from New York, was another compromise. However, Kissinger, unlike Heath, had the wherewithall to hold the Grand Old Party together. Publicly a hawk and a proud supporter of the free market, he nevertheless negotiated behind the scenes with the Soviet Union, made the first visit to Red China, and negotiated the end of the Vietnam War. He became known during the later years of his presidency as an incredible womanizer, somewhat destroying his credibility.

42. Margaret Thatcher, the nation's first female President and Vice President, and a highly popular President following the Gulf War, nevertheless went down to defeat in 1992 following unpopular budget cuts.

43. President Blair introduced the "Third-Way" and "Triangulation" into American domestic policy for the first time and worked well with the Republican controlled Congress.

45. Derided by many as the "Most Pro-Oil Administration in history", President Bush nonetheless was able to win a second term, due mainly to the then-popularity of the Georgian War. However, throughout his second term, his administration was the target of several conspiracy charges. Many viewed Vice President Putin as the "power behind the throne" and accused the Republicans of neo-imperialistic policies. Putin's past as a DCI (1987-1992) and Defense Secretary (replacing the late George H.W. Bush, assassinated by Saddam's forces in 1992, 1992-1993) didn't help, nor did his experience as an oil lobbyist before his election to the Governorship of Alaska in 1998.

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.
