I ran as myself Senator Conor Flynn of Maine, in the 2008 Democratic Primaries against Senator Hillary Clinton of New York and Senator Barack Obama of Illinois. Considering I lost the Democratic Nomination to Congressman Dennis Kucinich of Ohio, when we were both locked on 0% each the last time I played, I modified my percentages so I was at 15% in every state.

The Primaries began with myself trailing behind Barack Obama and consequently Hillary Clinton who started out with a massive lead over both myself and Obama. Slowly but surely I concentrated on all the early New England primary states and few out west (California and Colorado from memory). Although the campaign didn't gain much momentum from my victory in New Hampshire, defeating Hillary Clinton by 1 percent, Super Tuesday was where I began to shine.

By early March, I found myself within 200 delegates of Barack Obama and 400 of Hillary Clinton. By the end of the month, I received Barack Obama's endorsement and was now leading Hillary Clinton in the delegate stakes. Although I won about 80 percent of the remaining Presidential Primaries, except for Pennsylvania and Kentucky (which I was leading for about a month), Hillary didn't withdraw until I gave her all my political influence points so I could end her campaign and she finally dropped out in late June, just days out from the Convention to be precise.

Prior to Hillary's withdrawl from the 2008 Democratic Primaries on June 28, 2008, this is what the Presidential Primary map looked like, inclusive of Barack Obama's endorsement of my campaign for President. The map would have looked moreso convincing in my favour, as I had a huge delegate lead over Hillary in some states such as Iowa, California, New Jersey, etc.



Senator Conor Flynn of Maine: 2349 delegates
Senator Hillary Clinton of New York: 1562 delegates

Once I had finally received Senator Clinton's endorsement in June, I was finally able to campaign in the General against the Republican's nominee Senator John McCain of Arizona, who narrowly defeated Mitt Romney for the 2008 Republican Nomination. At both of the respective Conventions, I selected Senator Jim Webb of Virginia as my running mate and McCain selected Governor Mark Sanford of South Carolina.

Upon the Convention, I received a bounce of 2 percent and I retained that bounce over Senator McCain during the course of the Presidential campaign. There was some points during the campaign in which I was leading in Montana, Colorado, New Mexico, Virginia and Missouri, which all consisted of my grand Presidential strategy. But thanks to a power 9 scandal on John McCain's behalf I slipped behind McCain in the polls and consequently losed them all on Election Day.

On Election Day, I won the Presidency of the United States defeating Arizona Senator John McCain to succeed George W. Bush in the White House. Although I won the Presidency, the Electoral College map produced a boring map, not an obscure on like in Polnut's last post Sad



Conor L. Flynn/Jim Webb (D): 311 EV, 52.4% of the PV (60,959,576)
John McCain/Mark Sanford (R): 227 EV, 47.6% of the PV (55,393,422)

I know, but still on ocassions that I have played President Forever, particularly the normal 80soft 2008 scenario I have gotten some bizzare results, but none more as obscure as your latest one against Ron Paul. That reminds me, once I ran as Pat Buchanan in 80soft's 2000 Presidential scenario, I didn't campaign at all for the Presidenc, somehow managed to get 2.4% of the vote and Vice President Gore smashed Bush, Bush didn't even win a single southern state. Hehe.

John B. Anderson/Howard H. Baker (R): 535 EV, 62.7% of the PV (49,655,042)
James E. Carter/Walter F. Mondale (D): 3 EV, 37.3% of the PV (29,507,024)

I ran as Congressman John B. Anderson against incumbent President Jimmy Carter. I won by a landslide, even surpassing Lyndon B. Johnson's landslide victory over Senator Barry Goldwater of Arizona in 1964 by 1.4%. The state that I had my hopes on was the District of Columbia, I ended up missing out on a 50 state sweep along with a 538 Electoral College vote sweep by a mere nine points. 





Wendell Willkie/Thomas E. Dewey (R): 321 EV, 50% of the PV (30,082,565)
Henry A. Wallace/Harry S. Truman (D): 210 EV, 49% of the PV (29,299,697)

Prior to my landslide victory as Congressman John B. Anderson of Illinois, I ran as Wendell Willkie in the 1944 Normandy Nightmare scenario against incumbent Vice President Henry A. Wallace. Throughout the entire campaign, the Election was neck-and-neck between the two candidates. Although there was one stage during the campaign where I thought I was gaining leverage over Vice President Wallace due to attacking his stance on Communism, Wallace pulled back and attacked me due my integrity, which popped up as a power 8 scandal some two weeks prior to Election Day.

However it wasn't to be, I Wendell Willkie, who should have died in August 1944 was elected President of the United States in November 1944 defeating incumbent Vice President Henry A. Wallace in one of the closest Presidential Election in American History.

Walter F. Mondale/Gary W. Hart (D): 285 EV, 51% of the PV (50,956,362)
Ronald W. Reagan/George H.W. Bush (R): 253 EV, 48% of the PV (48,730,720)

As Paul Keating finely put it upon his 1993 Election victory over then Opposition Leader John Hewson, "The Sweetest Victory of them All" and this statement made by Keating is the same for this 1984 Presidential Election. I ran as Walter Mondale and for the first time, I won against incumbent President Ronald Reagan. Of course I started way behind Reagan in the polls but with my carefully laid out strategy and themes of the campaign I turned the tables against Reagan in my favour forcing the Election to be on knifes edge on Election Day.

The closest states in this 1984 Presidential Election were surprisingly Alaska, Ohio and New Mexico which I all lost and by less than 1 percent of the votes. However that is probably my mistake as I didn't begin to run all of my advertisements across the United States until two days prior to Election Day. But hey look at the bright side  I defeated Ronald Reagan as Fritz Mondale Cheesy.

That's the "bright side"?  Four years (or worse, eight) of Mondale would have been disasterous.

Whilst a Mondale Presidency probably would have been disasterous for the United States, nothing beats that feeling of defeating President Ronald Reagan for re-election in 1984, considering it's to date the first and only time that's occured.

Still a Mondale presidency could'nt have been much worse for America than the Reagan one was.

I actually "won" playing as the nutjob Royer, but "lost" due to a weird EC result Sad



Barack Obama/Bill Richardson (D) 310 EV, 48.3% of the PV (56,671,767)
Jean Royer/Sam Brownback (R) 228 EV, 51.7% of the PV (60,688,656)

That's a pretty big loss for a win.

Nelson A. Rockefeller/Howard H. Baker (R): 315 EV, 40.6% of the PV (32,436,914)
Hubert H. Humphrey/Edmund S. Muskie (D): 120 EV, 35.9% of the PV (28,676,914)
George C. Wallace/Curtis E. LeMay (AI): 103 EV, 23.5% of the PV (18,773,533)

To date this is the best result I have managed as Alabama Governor George C. Wallace. 103 Electoral College votes and 23.5% of the Popular Vote. Governor Wallace's campaign for the Presidency of the United States was mainly focused on Law and Order, the Vietnam War and Integrity. However it was the Law and Order issue that worked both for my own stance on the issue, but against both Governor Rockefeller and Vice President Humphrey and that's what helped propell me to win a few states in the outer south and even come second in Ohio.

2005 Soviet Union Presidential Election Results

Vladimir Putin/Gennady Zyuganov (C): 198 EV, 37% of the PV (60,949,411)
Mikhail Gorbachev/Boris Gryzlov (CPSU): 146 EV, 62% of the PV (101,066,494)

I ran as Mikhail Gorbachev against Vladimir Putin in the 2005 Soviet Union scenario. It's a great scenario, I highly recommend downloading it. However I suggest don't run as a Reform candidate in the scenario. You cannot win. I tried as Boris Yeltsin this morning and I was soundly defeated by Gorbachev, the CPSU candidate. 

You would think the popular reformist two term President of the Soviet Union would defeat the unknown Conservative candidate Vladimir Putin. But guess who won? Damned Russian Politics. You can never win as the good guy Sad

Crist/Cheney (R) 49,295,551 (41.5%) 136 EV
Dean/? (New England Secession) 6,876,826 (5.8%) 0 EV

Some of my best results:

Second in MA with 28.5%

New Hampshire: 20.1%
Maine: 20.1%
Connecticut: 20%
Vermont: 19.5%
Nebraska (WTF?): 16.9%
Minnesota: 18%
Delaware: 12.2%
Wisconsin: 8.9%
Idaho: 8.5%
Indiana: 7.9%
