He also renewed the Cold War with Nazi Germany, increasing arms production that would create an arms race the Nazis could not win--culminating in their collapse in 1991.

Dude. This is awesome. Would love to see this acted out in a tl sometime. Lol at the socialist Ronald Reagan, amusing to see him retain his hawkishness, and it's funny how the leftists ITTL would be the hawks due to their opposition to the Far Right Nazi Germany. This'd be great.

NEW DEAL SURVIVES---Center Left Nation.


Not completely an alternate history but some key changes.....

32.  1933-1945   Franklin D Roosevelt- (John Garner, Henry Wallace) (D)
33.  1945-1953   Henry Wallace- Harry Truman (D)  


(In 1950 Helen Gahagan Douglas narrowly beats Richard Nixon for the California senate)

34.  1953-1961   Dwight Eisenhower- Henry Cabot Lodge (R)
35.  1961-1969   John Kennedy- Hubert Humphrey (D)
36.  1969-1973   Robert Kennedy- Eugene McCarthy (D) no second term due to sex scandal

37.  1973-1981  Gerald Ford- Richard Schweiker (R)
38.  1981-1989  George McGovern -Geraldine Ferraro (D)
39.  1989-1993   Alan Simpson -Mark Hatfield (R)---defeated due to the recession of 1992
40.   1993-2001  Bill Clinton- Ann Richards (D)
41.   2001-2005  Ann Richards- Richard Gephardt (D)---steps down due to poor heath.
42.   2005-2009  Rudy Giuiliani -Olympia Snowe (R)---defeated poor economy.
43.   2009-2017  Hillary Clinton--Barack Obama (D)


Background (please pardon any typos, etc.) :
32 FDR keeps Wallace on 1944 ticket despite party opposition.

33.  Wallace assumed the presidency during WWII. Wallace refused to use Nuclear bombs and the US invaded Japan in 1945 to success. The job market was relatively strong under Wallace and thus he was narrowly nominated in 1948 and defeated Thomas Dewey in the closest election in history after 3 statewide recounts. (Dewey won the popular vote 51 to 49%.) Wallace pursued civil rights support came under stiff opposition from southern democrats and lost renomination in 1952 to Adlai Stevenson.

34. Eisenhower was elected to two terms along with moderate running mate Henry Cabot Lodge. In 1952 he faced Adlai Stevenson defeating him in a landslide. In 1956 Estes Kefauver. The 1956 race was much closer due to Eisenhower's health being an issue. Senator Kefauver hammered at this issue and raised doubts, but it was not enough to tip the election his way.  

35. In 1960 John Kennedy and running mate Hubert Humphrey defeated Vice President Henry Cabot Lodge in a landslide carrying 350 to 188 electoral votes 55 to 45%.Lodge ran a lackluster campaign without any focus. In 1964 they defeated Nelson Rockefeller in a close race 50 to 49% 300-238 EV. Kennedy pursued a "Strong Society" program, and passed landmark civil rights legislation in addition to packing the supreme court. Kennedy opted against full scale involvement in Vietnam. Kennedy continued much of the New Deal and left office with sky high approval ratings.

36. The public's love affair with the Kennedy dynasty continued in 1968. Robert Kennedy the presidents brother decided to pursue the presidency. In a very tough and bitter primary he narrowly defeated Vice President Humphrey. In the general election he defeated Arizona senator Barry Goldwater 53% to 47% with Goldwater carried every southern state and a few in the west. During his only term he continued his brothers domestic and civil rights policies to much success. His approval ratings were high until a sex scandal in 1971 involving call girls at the white house. The presidents numbers plummeted and the party asked for his withdrawal from reelection. Vice President McCarthy sought and won the nomination but was narrowly defeated by House Minority Leader Gerald Ford 50% to 49% (276-262). Former President Kennedy's image improved after leaving office hailed as a international humanitarian.

37 Gerald Ford began his presidency in the wake of the Kennedy sex scandals. He was narrowly elected on a promise of renewal. He sought to get the publics mind off of those sensitive issues. He was perceived as a social moderate, fiscal conservative and while not always a sharp public speaker people generally liked him even in the beggining. Ford pursued policies of detente with the soviet union and sought to improve relations between the nations and avert a cold war. President Fords middle east peace talks in 1975 were hailed as a break through. Ford was reelected in a landslide in 1976 based on a improving economy and peace abroad. Ford carried a whopping 44 states and 56% of the popular vote against Georgia Governor Jimmy Carter and running mate Ted Kennedy. He left office with a 70% approval rating after successfully negotiating the Iran hostage crisis.

38. Vice President Schweiker was very popular and the press was stunned when he opted out of running to succeed President Ford. Kansas senator Bob Dole won the republican nomination in 1980 and with President's Ford approval ratings high it was Dole's race to lose. That he did, his defeat came with a series of high profile gaffe's and one incident falling off of an open truck. Democrats nominated South Dakota Senator George McGovern over Ted Kennedy. McGovern defeated Dole in a major general election upset. The upset carried with him the first female vice president Geraldine Ferraro. This election marked a major gender gap with McGovern carrying women 60%-40% Dole with Men 56-44. President McGovern was famously photoed with an issue of the Chicago tribune which had predicted a Dole victory, in addition to many on air personalites notably Walter Cronkite early in the evening. Not a single pre election poll showed McGovern competitive despite Dole's gaffe problems. The McGovern terms were marked with a strong economy and peace abroad. McGovern pursued peace talks with the Soviet Union and a nuclear freeze. This met with conservative opposition and in 1984 McGovern survived a challenge from Texas Senator George Bush 52 to 47% McGoverns reelection theme was America is blooming again.

39. Vice President Geraldine Ferraro became the first woman to seek a major party nomination in 1988 and won nomination.  Ferraro had issues with her husbands business connections and mild sexism abroad which played as a distractions to her economic and equality based message. Ferraro chose California senator Alan Cranston as her running mate. Moderate republican senator Alan Simpson was nominated by republicans and he chose his colleague Oregon Senator Mark Hatfield. The Simpson- Hatfield Ticket beat Ferraro-Cranston 51% to 48% 298 electoral votes to 240.

40. Despite relative popularity after the successful gulf war and the death of Saddam Hussein President Alan Simpson lost support as the US economy sank into a deep recession. Arkansas Governor Bill Clinton was nominated by the Democrats and he chose popular Texas governor Ann Richards as his running mate. Independent businessman Pat Buchanan ran as a reform candidate and at claims that President Simpson was not socially conservative enough. Bill Clinton won the day with 50% of the popular vote to Simpsons 43% 7% for Buchanan. Clintons victory in the electoral college 338 to 208. Texas helped tip the electoral college in Clintons favor after winning it by less then 1pt. President Clinton presided over the best economy in decades and his approval ratings skyrocketed. His wife Hillary Clinton successfully lead the fight to pass a form of Universal Heathcare. By 1996 Clinton was the most popular president since FDR. He won the 1996 election in the strongest landslide since 1936 carrying 40 states and 59% of the popular vote against North Carolina Senator Jesse Helms. Clinton did have a sex scandal at the end of his term with Former Minnesota Senator Walter Mondale's daughter Eleanor, but republicans were not able to leverage this event to their advantage and Vice President Richards was elected to succeed him.

41. Vice President Ann Richards became the second woman to seek a major parties nomination. Having seen the mistakes and issues with Former Vice President Ferraro's campaign Richards went in with a game plan. The public admired her tough and frank cantor and felt she could be trusted because of it. The public felt she was someone they wanted to have a beer with. The republicans ran Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney as opposition. The contrast between the two was apparent from day one. The Richards campaign dug up Romney's past with Bain capital and the media painted him as out of touch. Vice President Richards one liners during the debates seem to help reinforce the image of Romney being out of touch. Richards defeated Romney 53% to 47% and 368-170 in the electoral college.Richards time in office was a challenge, she presided over the 9-11 attacks and the hunt for Osama Bid Laden. In 2003 The US found Bin Laden hiding in Syria and killed him in a raid. Richards approval was very high following this event. Richards while tough on foreign policy was an advocate at home for those without a voice in poverty, women and the LGBT community.During the end of her only term it was clear to the press and her administration that the presidents health was an issue and she decided not to seek a second term in 2004. President Richards passed away in 2006 two years after ending her successful term.

42. After President Richards decision not to seek a second term Rudy Giuiliani was the odds on favorite to win based on his popularity following the 9-11 attacks and his alliance with President Richards. Democrats nominated Vice President Richard Gephardt and the first African American on a ticket Congressman Harold Ford. They were defeated by Giuliani and his running mate Maine senator Olympia Snowe 52%-47% (279-259 EV) in the election. Guiliani began his term with strong popularity and continued President Richards homeland security policies. However the stock market crashed in 2008 and this lead to his defeat by Former First Lady and  Arkansas Senator Hillary Clinton.

43. Democrats tasted victory in the fall of President Giuliani's numbers in 2008. They saw Former First Lady Hillary Clinton as the strongest candidate to take him down and she was nominated outright after winning the Iowa caucus in a landslide over Illinois Governor Barack Obama. She quickly sought a running mate that would make a statement to add appeal to her ticket and she chose her closest opponent Obama to join her on the ticket. The Clinton Obama ticket stressed an economic message and took it deep into the industrial midwest where they crushed Giuliani in the popular and electoral vote. 379 to 159 54% to 46% respectively. Clinton began her term with legislation aimed at creating jobs and has tailored her message accordingly. Clinton has preferred to steer away from issues that do not pertain to job growth or the economy and her approval rating has remained steady at 47-52%. President Clinton was recently hailed by the LGBT community after a speech on gay rights. In addition to her opposition to recent republican efforts on birth control related legislation against women.

The Confederation Continues

In 1786, a group including John Hancock, Patrick Henry, Samuel Adams, John Jay, George Washington, and a few youngsters including Alexander Hamilton and James Madison, meeting in Pennsylvania, produced a constitution to save the Confederation. Amending the Articles of Confederation, they produce a modified plan that leaves states with a large amount of autonomy but leaves the federal government in control of interestate commerce, foreign policy, and a number of other key points. Combined with certain compromises made in 1787, the agreement is ratified, and in 1787, the first of the new elections to the Congress are held.

1. George Washington (Virginia) March 4th, 1788-March 4th, 1789
2. John Hancock (Massachusetts) March 4th, 1789-March 4th, 1790
3. Patrick Henry (Virginia) March 4th, 1790-March 4th, 1791
4. John Adams (Massachusetts) March 4th, 1791-March 4th, 1792
5. John Jay (New York) March 4th, 1792-March 4th, 1793
6. Thomas Jefferson (Virginia) March 4th, 1793-March 4th, 1794
7. Samuel Adams (Massachustts) March 4th, 1794-March 4th, 1795

8. Oliver Ellsworth (Connecticut) March 4th, 1795-March 4th, 1796
9. Aaron Burr (New York) March 4th, 1796-March 4th, 1797
10. Alexander Hamilton (New York) March 4th, 1797-March 4th, 1797)

A Paultard's Dream

41. Ronald E. Paul (Libertarian-TX) 1989-1997
42. Dennis J. Kucinich (American Left Alliance-OH) 1997-2001
43. Maurice Robert "Mike" Gravel (American Left Alliance-AK) 2001-2009
44. Randal Howard "Rand" Paul (Liberty Party-KY) 2009-2017

41. Incumbent President Ronald Reagan (R) dies just 3 weeks before the race, Republicans decide not to run a candidate, and endorse Ron Paul. Following the election of President Paul, the Republican Party merges with the Libertarian Party to create the Liberty Party, while the Democratic Party merges with the Green Party to create the American Left Alliance.

42. Was President Paul's Vice President from 1993-1997. The previous Vice President, Barry Goldwater Jr., announced that he would retire from politics. President Paul chose Ohio Governor Dennis Kucinich as his running mate, and won decisively. Vice President Kucinich sought the Presidency and chose Alaska Senator Mike Gravel as his running mate, he won with 57% of the vote.

43. After President Kucinich announced he would not seek re-election, Vice President Gravel immediately announced his candidacy. He faced a reasonably difficult primary from Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, but won. Vice President Gravel chose Sanders as his running mate and won with 58% of the vote in 2000, but won with only 50% of the vote in 2004.

44. President Rand Paul was the first son of a former President ever elected to the same office. His father, former President Ron Paul, died 3 days after his inauguration. His Vice President for both terms was Utah Senator Mike Lee.

There is a lot of humor to be mined from this as the mind of LBJ in the body of an 18 month old baby girl is quite hilarious.

The Confederation Continues

In 1786, a group including John Hancock, Patrick Henry, Samuel Adams, John Jay, George Washington, and a few youngsters including Alexander Hamilton and James Madison, meeting in Pennsylvania, produced a constitution to save the Confederation. Amending the Articles of Confederation, they produce a modified plan that leaves states with a large amount of autonomy but leaves the federal government in control of interestate commerce, foreign policy, and a number of other key points. Combined with certain compromises made in 1787, the agreement is ratified, and in 1787, the first of the new elections to the Congress are held.

1. George Washington (Virginia) March 4th, 1788-March 4th, 1789
2. John Hancock (Massachusetts) March 4th, 1789-March 4th, 1790
3. Patrick Henry (Virginia) March 4th, 1790-March 4th, 1791
4. John Adams (Massachusetts) March 4th, 1791-March 4th, 1792
5. John Jay (New York) March 4th, 1792-March 4th, 1793
6. Thomas Jefferson (Virginia) March 4th, 1793-March 4th, 1794
7. Samuel Adams (Massachustts) March 4th, 1794-March 4th, 1795

8. Oliver Ellsworth (Connecticut) March 4th, 1795-March 4th, 1796
9. Aaron Burr (New York) March 4th, 1796-March 4th, 1797
10. Alexander Hamilton (New York) March 4th, 1797-March 4th, 1797)

Sounds like a good TL Wink

List of Mayors of New York City:

Ed Koch (D): 1979-1993*
Rudolph Giuliani (R): 1994-2005**
Howard Stern (Independent-Libertarian): 2006-2009***
Bob Turner (R): 2010-Present****

* Koch narrowly survives a bitter primary against fellow Democrat David Dinkins
** Giuliani given third term in the wake of 9/11, term limits repealed
*** Stern runs on change from past two mayors, promising to serve only one term.  After a sex scandal comes out against his only real competition, Congressman Anthony Weiner, the polls tighten, and Stern is elected in a major upset, promising to legalize Marajuana and other "soft drugs" and eliminate the "fascist police tactics" of the Giuliani administration
**** While crime continued to drop during Stern's time in office, the citizens of New York realize that it is too early to legalize drugs of any kind in the city, and Turner is elected in a landslide on a law and order campaign.

25. President William McKinley while on one of his many nationwide tours, traveled to the Pan-American Exposition in Buffalo, New York, in September 1901. While in the shaking hands in the Temple Of Music by the Tower of Light between the Fountain of Abundance and the Court of Lilies anarchist Leon Czolgosz attempted to assassinate the president with a cleverly concealed pistol. However, an African-American James “Big Ben” Parker eyed the gun in a loose bandage and tackled the Michigan born anarchist before his deed could be carried out. Parker was hailed as a national hero and President McKinley left Buffalo more popular than ever.

The second term of William “Big Bill” McKinley was not an easy one for the nation. When news was leaked that the attempted assassin was an anarchist with a foreign name a new era of “Know Nothing”-ism took hold over the country.  Former Governor of the Philippines William Howard Taft is named the new U.S. Attorney General and, as a good bureaucrat, dutifully begins the “Taft Raids.” Lists of “reds” are released to the press and thousands of Americans are arrested in what becomes known as the “Red Scare of 1901.” The most famous anarchists/reds arrested are Emma Goldman, Sherwood Anderson, George Tucker, Bill Haywood, Eugene Debs, Job Harriman and Upton Sinclair. The arrests were highly controversial and lead to international outcry. The arrests continued into spring 1902 before the McKinley Administration ended them.

The war against the Philippines continued in force under McKinley. The brutal crackdown was continued. Terror came to the American homeland when on March 16, 1902, Pilipino nationals fired on the U.S. Senate as it was conducting a quorum call. Vice-President Roosevelt, who had happened to be overseeing the legislative body, was one of the five casualties of the attack. A bullet entered TR’s left-lung and he would pass away by the morning of March 17th, 1901. The Hero of Kettle Hill was mourned around the nation as a fallen hero. The war in the Philippines was expanded and the McKinley Administration Okayed concentration camps for Pilipino rebels. The resistance to these camps only created a more bloody resistance to the American occupation. By 1904 the United States was involved in fighting a guerilla resistance with no end in sight.  

26. In the 1904 election the Democrats nominated the Cleveland Democratic ticket of former Secretary of the Navy William C. Whitney (who survived an illness in early 1904) and former Secretary of State Richard Olney. Whitney ran on a peace platform which contrasted with the “Stay the Course” message of the Republican nominee Senator Nelson Aldrich of Rhode Island. President Whitney would only serve in the Executive Office from March 4th, 1905, to January 17th, 1906, but he began the long road to peace and independence for the Philippines. He would die in office of a stroke. One of the only decisions made by President Whitney was naming “Hail Colombia” as the U.S. national anthem. The popular tune was beloved across the country and both houses of Congress approved of the National Anthem Act of 1905 by unanimous margins.
