Arnold Schwarzenegger/Rudy Giuliani run against Harry Reid/Dave Freudenthal and base their entire campaign on the theme "we f#^$ing hate the Rocky Mountains and the plains".

Its 1944, FDR gets the Republican nomination, Dewey getes the Democratic nomination, and the German counter-offensive at the Ardennes peaks just before the election.

Er, FDR was from New York and the South was the massive Democrat stronghold in those days.

Er, I have FDR winning New York and the Democrat and Republicans switched, so I don't see what your big problem is.

Oops, wait a minute, I didn't see that FDR was the Republican.

Carry on. Smiley

Gabu- no prob Smiley



"Cactus Jack" Garner somehow wins the 1940 Democratic nomination and runs a weak campaign, focused around Kansas and Utah.

Mad props to whoever can figure this one out (I didn't make this randomly):

You got it True Dem

The Republican claimed he'd give benefits to the states near the beginning of the alphabet.
The Democrat claimed he'd give special treatment to the states at the end of the alphabet.
Seeing a prime opportunity a third party candidate jumped in promising to favor the states at the middle of the alphabet.

You might also notice that those at the very beinning (AL, AK) are the darkest blue, those at the very middle (MO, MT) are the darkest green and those at the very end (WI, WY) are the darkest red.

Give it some thought:



States with short names (like Iowa) vote Dem (the shortest ones more heavily so) and the states with long names (like North Carolina) vote Rep (the longer ones more heavily so

So was Kentucky. Tennessee was a part of N.Carolina. Maine was a part of Massachusetts. Vermont was in dispute between several states. Oh, and DC was a part of Maryland.

hey, I can't make 'em perfect.  It's the original 13 states, that's all I was looking for.
