A transformative figure, Leitch would begin the defense rollback sorely needed in the post-Communist age. Instead, spending on medicare programs rose, with the implementation of small business mandates by 1999. The cap on social security spending would also be raised, inciting anger from economists around the country. Leitch would also be drawn to intervene in the bloody Haitan civili war in order to oust loathed dictator Jeremi Côté, whose military junta had been in power since the beginning of the decade. 'Operation Swamp Marsh' was a success, but a raging insurgency, spearheaded by Côté's brother Jean-Luc and his defense minister René Germain, led to the US getting bogged down in the crisis and nearly kickstarting war with the Castro regime in Cuba. This, combined with a collapse in free trade negotiations with the burgeoning nation of Venezuela, led many commentators to think that Leitch's re-election bid was doomed from the verys tart, but domestic progress was more important to voters. Even former President Jerry Baker failed to convince the populace that they were in the doldrums as he campaigned for his ineffectual vice president. A last minute 'Job creation' program, which created thousands of housing projects across the rural states, helped boost Leitch's poll numbers in what many Republicans referred to as a bribe. Leitch was able to win hands down, with controversial businessman Buford Tannen splitting the vote (though corruption investigations resulted in a dip from his previous highs of 15%). Leitch's secondf term would be markedly more quiet than the first, in spite of the rise of the fundamentalist Liberasyon Avant Ayiti group in the former Haitian region. Wages would swell, and infrastructure programs were paying off, as was the 'Second Marshall Plan' to Russia. Unfortunately for him, his vice president, herself having only been a Democrat since the inauguration, lost by a slim margin after running a markedly incompetent campaign that failed to attract former Leitch voters. Former Governor Iris Hays was the triumphant one in 2004, and the Democrats would have to go back to 1996 to see what made Leitch click.

These are beautiful; though it's slightly sad that Siegelman didn't win his home state (I mean he probably should've won the gubernatorial race in 2002 - that race was dodgy.)
Yes - probably one of the few times that shit was genuinely up.
That was intended as a no-9/11 world, with Siegelman as an alternative to Gore/Kerry/Edwards/etc.

So a Nixon screw and a pretty messed up WH come the turn of the decade in 1980?
Yeah, the anti-Dewey backlash keeps Tricky Dick out of congress. He decides fuck it and goes back to law, becoming a very impressive trial lawyer.
Packwood was essentially dead in the water by 1980, yeah. Of course, things could've been different had he not survived his primary challenge from former Governor Jimmy Stewart.
Why not have him become an Executive at Ford; maybe in charge of resale or something like that?
Every time a President is primaried, a California Governor get their wings.
i don't know whether to laugh or cry at this

Nice box; though I think Agnew would've scraped it. McGovern is still seen as the 3 A's candidate, while Agnew is the candidate of 'middle America' (he was apparently enormously popular with parts of the electorate; after all his campaigning helped to get the positive result int he 1970 midterms for the GOP.)
This is in the aftermath of Humphrey getting nominated in 1972, and Agnew's scandals being covered up until October 1976, shortly before the election.
