Sorry, haven't seen your marvelous topic. You've got all the copyright...
I send your story to a friend.

Patton is fascinating, but I agree it would have been a mixed, if not risky, presidency... God save us!
Hard to imagine MacArthur as VP of a Patton president, even if it would have been like a fine movie...

Puzzling to see the present result of the poll: this site is a bit more Dem than Patton (!) and yet he leads the poll!
Everything is possible, after all.

Harry Truman wins. 

George Patton was too much of a loose cannon.

The electorate would never go for Patton as President.

I pretty much agree with Ted Stevens map.

Had Patton been President, however, it certainly would have made for interesting times in America and around the world.

    Patton was a brilliant general, but he was also a complete lunatic.  If he had become president we would have nuked Moscow, Paris, and London and declared war on the Eastern Hemisphere.
